1) Wholemeal is better for you.
2) A 1kg bag of wholemeal spelt costs £2.05 at Tesco whereas a 1kg bag of white spelt at the health food shop costs anywhere between £3.50 and £3.75 depending on the shop. That settled it. Cheap and healthy it is.
It did not disappoint. The sauce made two cups so I used some on this pizza, froze some for a future pizza and used the rest as a sauce over mushrooms and pasta the following day. Yum.
Then Friday I defrosted the white sauce and the crust in the fridge overnight and we had the pizza with smoky cream sauce, kale and thinly sliced sweet potato.
Again, this did not disappoint.
Up close and personal:
Because you cook these pizzas in a super hot oven (250C/500F) they cook in 10-15 minutes. I love to sit on the floor and watch it through the oven door as the dough actually rises before your eyes in the oven like some sort of time lapse photography on a nature programme and the sauce bubbles away.
The trick with these potato pizzas is to slice the raw potato as thin as you can so it will cook. Paper thin. Wafer thin (if you are Mister Creosote). Mine were not quite that thin but as thin as you can get it. Then toss the potatoes slices in a bit of oil and they get all tender and crispy around the edges and delicious.
