Hash Brown Pizza

With this clever Hash Brown Pizza, you can have a whole slimming-friendly pizza to yourself – it’s perfect if you’re calorie counting or following a plan like Weight Watchers!

Pizza is one of the greatest foods of all time, but all that dough and cheese makes it difficult to enjoy if you’re trying to eat healthily.

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!

We’ve got loads of different ideas for pizza recipes – why not take a look?

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

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

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

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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!

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

  10. 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

  11. 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.

    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 😊

  12. 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!

  13. 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

  14. 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 !
