Contest-Winning Baked Potato Pizza Recipe

“I wanted to recreate a light version of a restaurant pizza my friends and I used to get all the time in college. Here's what I came up with!” -Charlotte Hedke of Brownstown, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch slices
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 6 turkey bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • Reduced-fat sour cream, optional


  • 1. Place potatoes in a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and pat dry.
  • 2. Unroll dough onto a 14-in. pizza pan coated with cooking spray; flatten dough and build up edges slightly. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter with garlic; brush over dough.
  • 3. Arrange potato slices in a single layer over dough; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with cheeses. Bake at 400° for 22-28 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted.
  • 4. Sprinkle with bacon, onions and chives. Serve with sour cream if desired. Yield: 12 pieces.

"This was delicious and very easy. The only change I made was to use a mix of cheddar and mozzarella as that's what I had on hand. A nice change from regular pizza and the family loved it! Thanks!"
