Healthy Recipe: Potato Crust Pizza


Fans of pizza and potatoes unite!  This healthy recipe from Colorado Potatoes combines two favorite foods with simple ingredients and directions.  Wonderfully warm and filling on a winter’s day, potatoes are a healthy eating food because they provide dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, folic acid (folate), beta-carotene, and iron.  A fun recipe to make with the whole family.  And if you let the kids top the pizza, maybe you can get them to add a few veggies, too!

    Something screwy with this recipe as posted – perhaps the potatoes info. should all be together? Also, I’m curious about nutritional info. for the recipe (fat, sugar and so on)?
