Potato, Olive and Smoked Cheddar Pizza!

Potato, olive, rosemary and smoked cheese pizza – Quickes’ Smoked Cheddar melted over slithers of new potato is comforting and woody. Wonderful with a few briny Real Olive Company Organic Olives and sprigs of rosemary for an authentic Mediterranean vibe. Try with air dried ham for a meaty version or keep it vegetable based for something lighter.



  1. Using the back of a spoon spread out your pesto onto the pizza dough. Then top with mandolin-thin sliced potato, olives, sprigs of rosemary and sliced ham. Next using a potato peeler shave off several slices of smoked cheddar to cover the pizza.
  2. Bake for 2-3 mins turning regularly. Garnish with elderflowers or chive flowers.


This pizza was baked on the Fontana Maestro 60 Gas Fuelled Pizza Oven. For more information and prices, click here.
