Potato Cheese Pizza Recipe

Potato Cheese Pizza Recipe

“My take is a great new twist on classic white pizza and is a favorite of all who try it," says Pam Metzinger, Wilmington, North Carolina. "Simple to create, this pizza is a potato lover's dream! Crumbled bacon is a delicious topper as well.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 prebaked mini pizza crust
  • 6 slices Monterey Jack cheese (3/4 ounce each), divided
  • 1 medium potato, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Dash salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 slices Muenster cheese (3/4 ounce each)
  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Directions

  • 1. Place crust on an ungreased baking sheet; top with four slices Monterey Jack cheese. Bake at 400° for 6-8 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • 2. Meanwhile, place potato slices in a small microwave-safe dish; add water. Cover and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes or until tender; drain. In a large skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Add the potato, salt and pepper; saute 5-6 minutes longer or until potatoes are lightly browned.
  • 3. Combine the ricotta cheese, mustard and garlic; spread over pizza. Layer with potato mixture, Muenster cheese, cheddar cheese and remaining Monterey Jack cheese. Bake 8-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 2 servings.
