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 diets is this Hash Brown Pizza suitable for?

This recipe is suitable if you’re gluten free!

Please make sure to double or triple check all of your ingredients if you’re cooking for people with allergies.

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

Would it work if you made the base in advance and then it cooled down? Then added toppings later and cooked again?

    Any sort of potato should work ????

JoMonday 14th August 2017

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

    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    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!

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.

    Emma TTuesday 12th September 2017

    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 ????

LucyFriday 26th May 2017

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!

Reply

    KateMonday 29th May 2017

    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

H xxxSunday 9th April 2017

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!

Reply

    KateTuesday 11th April 2017

    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

Can you use frozen hash browns for the Base ?

Reply

TrishWednesday 5th April 2017

Hi do you mix the 1 egg with the potato & then use a different egg for the middle

Reply

    KateThursday 6th April 2017

    Hi Trish
    Yes, one to make the base, then another for the topping if you’re making a breakfast pizza

Tracey NelsonWednesday 5th April 2017

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.

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!
