  1. Prep the Potatoes: Start by peeling and grating the potatoes. Then, squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the grated potatoes to ensure your base gets crispy. A clean tea towel can be very effective for this purpose.
  2. Make the Base: In a large bowl, mix the grated potatoes with the flour, eggs, and a bit of salt and pepper. This mixture will form the base of your pizza.
  3. Shape and Bake the Base: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). On a baking tray lined with parchment paper, spread the potato mixture into a round pizza shape, about 1/2 inch thick. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until it begins to turn golden and crispy.
  4. Prepare Toppings: While the base is baking, take the time to prepare your toppings. Mix the grated cheese with plain yogurt – this mixture will help your toppings adhere to the base. Also, prepare your vegetables as listed.
  5. Assemble the Pizza: Once the base is ready, remove it from the oven and spread the yogurt and cheese mixture over it. Then, arrange the tomato slices, pepper strips, grated carrot, and chopped onion on top. Drizzle with olive oil and season with the aromatic herbs, salt, and pepper.
  6. Final Bake: Return the pizza to the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the edges of the vegetables are slightly charred.
  7. Serve: Garnish the baked pizza with chopped parsley before serving. For the optimal experience, savor this dish immediately after it emerges from the oven.
