Shepherds Pizza Pie

This shepherds pizza pie addresses the very widely know issue of how to bridge Italian and Irish cuisine. Call Stanford.

This shepherds pizza pie recipe is my re-imagining of the classic Irish dish, shepherds pie. The crust is a seasoned potato cake topped with all of your classic shepherds pie ingredients that will send you back again and again for another “slice”. It’s hearty, it’s Irish, it’s Italian, it’s confused, and oh so good. It’ll have you asking “Oi, what’s amatta you?”. The answer is: nothing. I love fusion, and it works.

I will say that using a pizza stone was a terrible mistake. This recipe should have been done with a nice big greased cookie sheet, which one day I might go back and repost properly. For now I’ll just say you should monitor your potato cake, to get the right crisp and consistency, before moving ahead with the toppings. It’ll work out just fine, and the flavor is amazing. Enjoy!
