    Nice – gotta love red onion for color.
    In addtion to basil and oregano, fennel seed is one of my favorite pizza spices. 🙂

      I never thought about fennel. We’ll have to give it a try next time. The onion turned out pretty nice on the pizza… I was too “IN” to the potatoe slices, but the boys liked it. I wish I knew where my mandolin was, it would make thin slicing easier! 😉

    I like that your version has more potato. 🙂 Have you ever put kale on your pizza?

      No, how does Kale work out? That is currently in season, do you have any pizza recommendations with it?? I don’t know that our pizza had more potatoes, we used smaller potatoes – yukon golds.
