Potato Pizza with Herbs

1 pound waxy potatoes, such as Yukon Gold

1 medium onion, very thinly sliced
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup coarsely chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as rosemary, savory, oregano, and dill, divided
1 recipe Pizza Dough

Potato Pizza with Herbs

Peel the potatoes if you like, then slice them as thinly as possible on an adjustable-blade slicer, such as a Benriner or mandoline, into a large bowl. Cover the potatoes with warm water, then stir in the salt. Let the potatoes stand in the water for at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours. Drain the potatoes and spread them out in a single layer on a clean kitchen towel. Loosely roll up the towel to dry the potatoes, then place the potatoes in a large bowl and toss with the onion, oil, ½ teaspoon pepper, and 2 tablespoons herbs.

Preheat the oven to 475°F.

Transfer the dough to a well-oiled baking sheet and turn it over in the oil to coat it. Stretch the dough to the edges, letting the dough rest for a minute if it is pulling back and refusing to cooperate (that resistance comes from the glutens in the dough; by giving them a minute to relax, they become more compliant). Spread the potato mixture evenly over the dough.

Bake the pizza until the crust is golden on the bottom and the potatoes are browned in places, about 30 minutes. Transfer the pizza to a cutting board and cut it into pieces. Sprinkle the remaining herbs over the pizza and serve.
