Baked Potato Pizza

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 ยบ. 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.

  7. When I was a missionary in Japan, one of things I did was collect the ads for the pizza places, because Japanese pizza was so "unique." One of the specialties as an Idaho pizza with french fries on it. We didn't eat pizza much because it was so expensive ($40 per pizza - didn't fit into our meager budget).

  8. $40 for a pizza?? I love pizza, but I'm not sure it's worth $40.

  9. I think it looks wonderful! I might have to try it this week. It is a little like what is in a chicken pot pie without the gravy. I love homemade pot pies! So, we will just have to experiment!
