I used triple the garlic as I found that 2 cloves really don;t mash up into the amount of paste needed to spread on the dough and on top of the potato layer. I also used more parmesan and arugula. Crisp and tasty, a garlic lovers treat!

I made this with the spinach. I thought it was pretty good, but my family wasn't sold on it. Thanks for posting.

I added caramelized onions, thyme, and truffle oil, and increased the arugula. The amount of cheese was good for us. It sounded so delicious, but something was lacking. In fairness, I am giving no stars, since I suspect it could have been the new pizza crust I was trying that was the reason it didn't work out.
