5 from 1 reviews

Pizzaiola roughly translates to “in pizza-style.” Potato pizzaiola is a layered potato dish made with a flavourful tomato sauce and cheese. It is a comforting and delicious casserole that is a favourite with pretty much everyone.




  1. Thinly slice the potatoes. Try for as thin as you can, as the dish will cook faster if the potatoes slices are around 1/8″ thick.
  2. Mix the ricotta and mozzarella together.
  3. Use a medium sized baking dish (about 11″ x 7″) or a medium sized slow cooker. Grease the dish to prevent sticking.
  4. Start with a layer of potatoes on the bottom of the pan. Make it a single layer, but overlap the potatoes to form a solid base. Lightly season the potatoes with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour 1/3 of the sauce over the potatoes and spread 1/3 of the ricotta and mozzarella mixture.
  6. Repeat for two more layers, then finish with the remaining potatoes, and top with grated cheese.
  7. Baking instructions: Cover the dish with tin foil and bake at 400 F for 40 minutes. Remove the tinfoil and bake for another 15-30 minutes, until the potatoes are done and the cheese is bubbling.
  8. Slow cooker instructions: set it on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours, until the potatoes are well cooked.
