No-Meat Fridays, Week 4: Rosemary and Garlic Potato Flatbread Pizza

Week 4 of no meat on Fridays. This is really cutting into our date night options, as if we go out, I usually tend to pick a meat dish. I didn’t really notice that until I realized I couldn’t have 3/4 of the items on a menu. I don’t know how vegetarians do it!

As such, we’ve taken to cooking in on Fridays, so I’ll be able to enjoy a delicious meat-free dish each week.

This dish is definitely a keeper. Yes, it would seem like this is carb overload, but it really didn’t feel that way as I ate it. Plus, the flatbread seemed like it was a kind of a fancy meal. Definitely restaurant-level quality. Pair with a good wine and you have yourself a great stay-in date night.


1 lb pizza dough
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 cup olive oil
1 thinly sliced red potato
1-2 tablespoons of rosemary
Grated Parmesan cheese – to taste
Sea salt and pepper- to taste

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

I started with store bought dough from Trader Joe’s.


I went with a kind I hadn’t tried before – garlic and herb. I highly recommend it. You can make your favorite dough recipe – just up the amount of garlic and rosemary you add. Let it sit out for about 20 minutes, then roll it out to a 12 inch square.

Put the olive oil, pepper, and garlic in a small bowl,


and brush it onto the dough.


Spread the thing potato slices out onto the dough. Try not to stack the potatoes.


Top everything off with the sea salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until the crust turns a little brown and the potatoes are soft and fully cooked.


I thought this was a great quick and easy Friday dinner.
