Potato Pizza

Ingredients
2 potatoes, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
1 teaspoon dry yeast
1 3/4 cup cold water
3/4 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cup flour
1 tablespoon chopped onion
4 tablespoon olive oil

Directions
Combine flour, 1/2 tsp. salt, sugar and yeast in a bowl with an electric mixer, and slowly add 1 3/4 cups cold water. Mix on low speed until ingredients begin to combine. Continue to mix for about 10 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic and cleanly pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Place dough in an oiled bowl, and allow to rise for 2 to 4 hours until it has doubled in size. While the dough raises, prepare the potato topping. Slice potatoes very thin, then soak them in several changes of ice water to remove excess starch. Drain slices in a colander, toss with 1/2 teaspoon salt, and set aside for 10 minutes. Drain any accumulated water. In a medium bowl, combine potatoes, chopped onions, and 1 tablespoon olive oil, and set aside. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Oil two baking sheets. Divide dough in half. Place each piece on its own baking sheet. Flatten dough out to the edges of the pan. Evenly spread potatoes over the surface of the dough up to the very edge. Season with remaining 1/2 tsp. salt and remaining 3 Tbsp. olive oil. Bake potato pizza until it has shrunk away from the edges of a pan and the bottom is golden brown, about 30 minutes. Yields (2) 8 inch pizzas.
