German Pizza

2012 May 2

German Pizza is a filling dish that is simple to make.  As with many dishes I make, it is customizable to your tastes.  It’s a dish that my husband’s dad made on a semi-frequent basis, and that he considered to be one of his specialties.  My husband remembers that his dad always thought he was a pretty good cook.  And from what I’ve heard of his recipe creations, it sounds like he was an adventurous cook to boot.  Cauliflower omelets, anyone?

Not everything his dad made was amazing or gourmet, but German Pizza was one of his best.  Now that he’s gone, it’s become a comfort food to my husband, and he enjoys remembering him while dining on this dish!

German Pizza

Potatoes, onion, ham, and eggs.  Now, please note that I used at least double the eggs in my dish to hold it all together.

What You Need

You want to slice the potatoes and onions as uniformly as possible.  If you have a mandolin, now is an excellent time to use it!

Potatoes and Onion

In a baking dish, layer the potatoes, onion, and ham. Choose a dish that will make as much as your family will eat.  This dish is about a 12″ diameter, and fed our family of 4 for a few meals.

Onions

Now, you can also use spam if you would like, in place of the ham.  Either way, it will be pretty good.

Ham

In a bowl, beat eggs with a little salt and pepper.  Pour the eggs over the layered potatoes, onion, and ham. Start with a few eggs.  If you need more, you can always beat a few more to pour on top.  I think I used around 6 to 8 eggs to fill this dish.

Eggs

Bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven for about 30 to 45 minutes, until eggs and potatoes are cooked through.  Then, turn on the broiler and let the top get a little crispy and blistered.

Crispy

Top with some cheese and return to the oven to melt.

Cheesy

Let the pizza sit for several minutes before cutting and serving.
