Eagle ID (March 2015) —Pizza and Idaho® Potatoes sound like a match made in heaven to the Idaho Potato Commission–and your customers. Pizza is one of America’s most popular foods. And Idaho® Potatoes are a menu regular favored by millions. Why not team them up for spectacular potato-centric pizza toppings?
Not surprising, more than a few savvy operators have already recognized the versatility of Idaho® Potatoes in topping, “sauce,” and crust recipes. Morning (Breakfast Pizza), noon (Potato Rosemary Flatbreads) and night (Idaho® Potato and Sonoma Foie Gras Pizza), versatile Idaho® Potatoes give pizza toppings texture, substance and earthy flavor. Instead of sauce, Garlic Mashed Idaho® Potato Pizza uses a layer of creamy, aromatic spuds under diced tomato, green onions and feta cheese. Need crust? Mashed Idaho® Potatoes are blended into a tender base for Idaho® Potato Pizza Margherita Style.
