Crust: Combine potatoes, onion, green pepper and white pepper.  Fold in beaten egg.  Press potato mixture evenly into greased pie plate to form crust, building up sides to rim.  Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until crust just begins to brown.  Remove from oven. (Crust may be prepared to this point, cooled, covered and refrigerated until ready to serve.  To reheat place in cold oven; set temperature to 350 degrees.  Heat for 10 minutes.)
