Reduce Food Waste: Leek & Potato Pizza.

If you’re looking for a simple recipe to help you get rid of your leftover cooked potatoes, then look no further…


  1. 400g leftover mashed potatoes
  2. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  3. 150ml milk
  4. 2 teaspoons mixed dried herbs
  5. 175g rye flour

Topping Suggestion:

  1. 100g thinly sliced boiled potatoes
  2. 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  3. 1 sliced leek
  4. 50g grated cheese


Cooking Instructions:

  1. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and add the potato and herbs, stirring to combine. Add the milk to the dry mix to form a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly-floured surface and knead lightly to form into a smooth ball of dough.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 225°C/Gas Mark 7. Place the dough onto a greased baking sheet, pressing the mix evenly to create a round base, a bit thicker than a £1 coin. Put the base into the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the pizza base and lower the temperature of the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.
  3. Spread the tomato puree over the base, and top with the sliced leeks, boiled potatoes and grated cheese.
  4. Bake the pizza in the oven for a further 8-10 minutes, until the cheese has melted and the base is crisp.
  5. Relax and enjoy!
