Potato Herb Bread/Pizza Dough Recipe

You can make potato bread, pizza, garlic pizza, focaccia a delicious dough and so versatile! This recipe dates back to grandma's days. Probably 120 years ago, still delicious and gets better with age!  Give it a try, it's easy and can have many uses for all your dough and recipe needs!

2 cups mashed potatoes (I use yellow boiling potatoes)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 package dry yeast
1/2 temped tap water ( warm to the feel on your wrist)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano and basil
1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic or 1/2 teaspoon dry
4 cups flour

In a large mixing bowl mix the water and yeast together. After 5 minutes add the sugar, mashed potatoes and 2 cups flour stir together. Add the herbs, garlic and rest of the flour, using the flat beater on a heavy duty mixer beat till dough forms a ball around 2 minutes.

Cover and let rise in a warm place till double.  Around an hour and a half.

You can make pizza I used a pie plate for deep dish, bread or rolls.
 A delicious herb dough for all your needs!
