Baked Potato Pizza


You may recognize this picture from my blog. When Ryan and I were in Duluth, MN we ate at a pizza place and were introduced to Baked Potato Pizza. It was SO good! Last night I decided to recreate it, and honestly, I like it even better! Anyone up for something new, I definitely suggest trying it. Ryan and my brother, who came over to eat it with us, devoured it as well!

Pizza Crust (this is SUPER easy):
Combine:
1 T yeast
1 C warm water
1 tsp. sugar

Add:
1 tsp. salt
2 T vegetable oil
2 1/2 C flour

Mix together, knead with hands, let rise 10 mins. Roll out onto pizza pan. Poke holes in it with a fork. (The recipe says to now let it pre-cook for 5 mins, but I actually let mine cook for about 20 mins--until it was just starting to be golden) @ 375.

When the crust is ready, put a layer of mashed potatoes (I made my own red mashed patatoes,which I would suggest, but I suppose you could just use boxed mashed potatoes). On top of that, put whatever baked potatoe toppings you like--I suggest broccoli, tomato, bacon, and lots of cheese! With all the toppings on bake it again for another 15-20 mins (or until you feel like the crust is ready/the topping are warm).

Serve with sour cream.

It's SO good you guys! So much so, that I almost want to make it for dinner again tonight!

Yum- I really want to try this. I was watching a Food Network show that had a recipe like this on it a while ago. And wanted to try it then. Now that you have made it I know I must try it!
