Pizza Hasselback Potatoes Recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 washed potatoes
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • Pepperoni, sliced
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1½ cups mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Fresh basil leaves, finely sliced

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Take six washed potatoes (skin still on!) and thinly slice them ¾ of the way through to create a hasselback potato. TIP: hold the potato between two wooden spoon handles to guide your knife to a stopping point.
