I first heard of this delicious and distinctive pizza when a friend tried it at a restaurant. It sounded great so I experimented to come up with my own recipe. The way the slices disappear, there's no doubt about their popularity. Guests are always excited when my potato pizza is on the menu.

"Very yummy!! A few ways to decrease the fat and sodium counts...make homemade wholewheat crust, use sodium reduced bacon, as well as lower fat versions of cheese and sour cream. Worth trying!!"

"Yikes! The sodium is crazy in this recipe. I suppose that's mostly from the bacon. I might try it with canadian bacon and maybe not so much cheese."
