Hash Brown Pizza - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

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 to know in the blurb!

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.

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?

What sort of weight would two large potatoes be please? I made this last week and it was delicious but it seemed like a huge amount of potato! I think that because I had two much potato there wasn’t enough egg to bind it? Thank you!
