Salt and Vinegar Potato Pizza
Anyone who knows me, knows my long term love affair with the very unhealthy, but delicious Smith's Crinkle Cut Salt & Vinegar Crisps. No other brand does the trick, and they are my ultimate cheat food whilst watching movies with my husband.
So why not transfer that love to a vegan pizza! Seems logical to me, and at least makes me feel like I'm eating a proper meal!
A delicious gluten free pizza base, topped with vegan cheese - It was my first time trying pre-made vegan cheese, and it was surprisingly tasty - and thinly sliced red potatoes. Then topped with some caramelised onions, which are also always good by themselves, but this time using red spanish onions, and mixing with pink himalayan salt and red wine vinegar. Then some thyme, rosemary and rocket leaves.
This was seriously the best thing I've eaten for a while, so I'll definitely be making it again.
I hope some of you make it too.
