If you've never tried this pizza before, you might think it seems strange. My family did! I loved it last time I made it (when no one else was brave enough to try it) so I was making it again even if I was going to be the only one to eat it again. But Alex tried it this time and liked it. I didn't put the bacon on it, but followed the rest of the directions. I think it tastes even better with freshly chopped garlic instead of garlic powder. Just throw anything you like on a loaded baked potato onto the pizza. Have all your carbs at once! What's so wrong with that?
Baked Potato Pizza
1 prepared pizza crust
3 med. unpeeled potatoes, baked and cooled
1 T. margarine, melted
¼ t. garlic powder
¼ t. Italian seasoning or dried oregano
1 c. (8-oz.) sour cream
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
3 - 5 green onions, chopped
1½ c. (6-oz.) mozzarella cheese, shredded
½ c. cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 400 º. Prepare crust according to package directions. Press dough into a lightly greased 14-inch pizza pan; build up edges slightly. Bake for 5-6 minutes or until crust is firm and begins to brown. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes. In a bowl, combine margarine, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Add potatoes and toss. Spread sour cream over crust; top with potato mixture, bacon, onions and cheeses. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
