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.

Ingredients

Instructions

  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.
