Hash Brown Pizza | Slimming World & Weight Watchers Friendly

Pizza is one of the greatest foods of all time, but all that dough and cheese makes it difficult to enjoy whilst watching your calorie intake or following plans like Slimming World and Weight Watchers.

With this clever Hash Brown Pizza, you can have a whole pizza all to yourself for only a few more calories than a large slice of a Dominos Meat Feast!

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

There are lots of recipes out there that replace the base of a pizza with vegetables like cauliflower, but these still need cheese adding to help them stick together. We believe that all the cheesy goodness should be on top of the pizza, not hiding in the base!

By replacing that heavy dough with a giant hash brown, you can enjoy two of the greatest comfort foods in life for a fraction of the calories, Syns and Weight Watchers Points.

You can top this Hash Brown Pizza with anything you want. We recommend loading up with tasty veggies, cheese, chicken, ham or lean bacon. Basically anything you enjoy!

Because this is essentially a pizza topped hash brown, you can even make it for breakfast. Rochelle from our Facebook group made the fabulous variation below!

Topped with finely chopped heck sausages, ham, bacon, tomatoes, red peppers and cheese, Rochelle then made a shallow hole in the middle to put an egg in!

DISCLAIMER; you may need to eat this with a knife and fork. The potato base isn’t as strong as its dough counterpart, but it does taste incredible!

  1. Wow, wow, wow simply heavenly, I added x2 Linda McCartney chorizo sausages at 1/2 syn each and added a little mixed herb to give it that Italian feel.

  2. Tried this for breakfast this morning and it was great ( except I burnt the sausages 😊). Instructions real easy to follow. I’ll be trying more recipes.

  3. Just made this with a topping of chicken, mushroom and red peppers, me and the non-SW husband loved it. The topping is obviously similar to a pizza but the base is different enough that you just enjoy it for what it is, without wishing it was an actual pizza!

  4. Ive just found this site and joined straight away been reading now for over an hr and really cant wait to start my journey… it get really challenging when you are new to gluten free and diets….but here gos im ready for my journey… thank you so so so much.

  5. Love your website. Only problem is I have a quick look then see something else and before you know it 2 hours have passed!! But I love the recipes and thanks for all the hard work you save us from doing re syns etc

  6. This is fab, so easy to make – I need to make adjustments when I next make it – but first attempt was perfectly edible – thanks.

  7. Hello, I really want to try these recipes but can’t seem to find instructions anywhere..pls could you advise?

  8. Is it possible to make a few of the base & freeze them??- I work 12hr shifts & this would be nice to have without having to make fresh each time.

    1. Hi Tracey
      We’ve not tried freezing them, but they should be ok. If you give it a go let us know how you get on

  9. Amazing! I must try this. However, I’m vegan. Can you suggest another ingredient which might help bind the potato? Or maybe just squeezing out all the liquid from the potato and brute force?Lol Such a simple idea….. can’t wait to try it tomorrow!

    1. Hi Holly
      You should be ok to just squeeze out the liquid, and press it firmly into the dish. If the potatoes are quite starchy then they should hold together

  10. I really must try this. I havent dared have a pizza for years so something that tastes remotely like one has just go to be done!

  11. Hi. I’ve recently joined slimming world and the hubster is being very supportive (which is great cos he does most of the cooking). I’ve converted him to syn free breakfasts, but we were both thinking there must be a recipe out there for hash browns (SW style). Can now go away and try this, thank you 😘

  12. Hi the recipes on this page is wonderful they keep[ me on track having different meals so thank you so much

  13. Thanks so much for this recipe really excited to try it. Quick question have you any recommendation on what type of dish or tray to use to cook the hash brown base? Every with copious frylight the last time I made it it stuck to a baking tray and then I tried it on greaseproof paper and it stuck to that also!

    1. Hi Lucy
      We tend to just use a ceramic quiche dish which we find works well, however, if you have problems with sticking you could try lining the dish with baking parchment rather than greaseproof. Parchment has a coating which makes it better than greaseproof

  14. Hi there Kate.
    I am vegan too. Tried to make this and it stuck to a tray and then collapsed. I am not sure if it was my choice of potato. I did not squeeze them as I was not sure what this meant.
    Daniel.

    1. Hi Daniel,

      You need to take the grated potato and squeeze it between your hands over a bowl or sink to get rid of the excess water and starch in it 😊

  15. Just wondered, it says bake base for half hour but then add toppings after an hour. So do you bake base for half an hour then leave to cool for an hour before adding toppings or have I misinterpreted that?
    Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Jo,

      It might be a little confusing – it means that once that base has had 30 minutes in the oven, spread over the toppings.

      Hope that helps!

      1. Hi Samantha
        The recipe makes one pizza and uses one HEA of cheese. If you’re sharing the pizza, you’ll only be using half your HEA for the day. (Splitting Healthy extra choices is fine as long as you measure accurately. 🙂 )

    1. Hi Emma
      Yes, you can cool the hash brown base down then cook again with toppings. Just make sure the base is heated through thoroughly.

  16. Had it for dinner to last evening, very tasty,
    Too much potato in mine , 2 medium potatoes would have been better, cooked mine a bit longer too, didn’t use frylite anywhere in the method, as it’s wasnt in the instructions but could have sprayed the dish before. Pics on Twitter & instagram #pinchofnom

  17. I will be making this very soon !! I have made your strudels, apple turnovers, pasties and sausage rolls and all are brilliant. keep up the good work, its variety that keeps people on plan !

  18. My new motto since joining slimming world, if there is away there is a slimming world recipe.
    You are amazing with your hard work and adaptation of recipes.
    But has anyone an idea for triamusa.?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Aarti
      Obviously, the traditional recipe uses ingredients that send the Syn value stratospheric! (It’s my absolute favourite dessert too…typical!)
      We have had members on the FB group post ideas for a Tiramisu-type dessert, using scan bran crispbread soaked in sweetened coffee and layered with the Muller latte flavour greek yogurt.
      We are compiling a list of luxury recipes that people would be willing to spend a few more Syns on, so I’ll forward your idea to the chefs!

    1. Hi Benita
      I think that Butternut squash would be too soft for this, the texture will probably be too mushy. Possibly swede, or celeriac, would work instead.

    1. Hi Isobel
      We don’t have a video for this particular recipe, but the step by step instructions are pretty comprehensive. 🙂
