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
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.
1 tablespoon white flour OR 2 Tbsp. cornstarch

Thinly slice one potato per person. For each 3-4 potatoes, thinly slice one medium onion. In a saucepan of cold water, bring the potatoes and onions to a boil and simmer 3 minutes. (not quite cooked) Now, make your cream sauce. For each 2 potatoes: Melt over medium heat: 1 Tbsp. butter, and stir in thoroughly: 1 Tbsp. white flour or 2 tsp. cornstarch. Slowly add 1 cup milk, whisking continuously until it thickens. Arrange the potatoes and onions in an appropriate casserole dish (shallow is best) Top with cream sauce.

Slice potatoes lengthwise into 1/4 strips or wedges and place in a bowl. Some recipes call for soaking potatoes in ice water for 30 minutes at this point, but I don’t find it necessary.
