Husband usually does not like baked potatoes but he liked these. I subbed diced ham instead of pepperoni because I didn’t have any pepperoni. I got home late one evening and threw the potatoes in the IP. While the potatoes were steaming, I warmed up the pizza sauce. I did add mushrooms, green peppers , garlic and onions to the sauce. Quick meal.
