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.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bacon strips, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 pounds potatoes (about 3 large), peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Minced fresh chives and sour cream, optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp, stirring occasionally. Add onion and pepper; cook and stir until bacon is crisp. Drain well.
Place potatoes and water to cover in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, until tender, 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, unroll and press pizza crust onto an ungreased 14-in. pizza pan; prick several times with a fork. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Increase oven setting to 375°.
Drain potatoes; return to pan. Mash potatoes, gradually adding milk and salt. Spread over crust. Top with bacon mixture and cheeses.
Bake until cheese is melted, 15-20 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with chives and serve with sour cream. Yield: 8 servings.

"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!!"
