Step 1 - Pre-heat Oven

Preheat oven to 250°C (230°C fan-forced) and if using a pizza stone place this in the oven to heat through.

Step 2 - Create Caramelised Onion

For the caramelized onion, heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add sliced onion, stirring until well coated. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until onion is soft. Increase heat to medium, add vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper, stirring until sugar dissolves and begins to caramelise. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Step 3 - Create Garlic and Rosemary Oil

For the garlic and rosemary oil, place all the ingredients together in a small saucepan over a low heat and cook for 10 minutes, making sure garlic does not burn. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Step 4 - Boil Spud Lite Potatoes

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add sliced potatoes, return to boil and cook for 2 minutes. Drain. Place warm potato slices in a mixing bowl and pour over half the garlic and rosemary oil, tossing until well coated, adding extra required.

Step 5 - Create Spud Lite Potato Pizza

On a clean lightly floured work surface, roll a dough ball into a 25-30cm round, approximately 5mm thick.

To assemble pizza, remove pizza stone from oven (if using) or lightly oil a baking tray and place prepared dough on top. Spread pizza base with a 1/3 of the cooled caramelised onion mixture, leaving a 2cm border around the edge. Scatter over the par cooked potato slices and pizza cheese. Place in oven and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until cheese has melted and base is toasted. Scatter over some torn prosciutto slices and return pizza to oven for 2 minutes to warm through.  Remove from oven.

Step 6 - Serving Time

To serve, sprinkle baby rocket over the top and cut into 6 – 8 slices.
