Potato Pizza

3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 tube refrigerated pizza crust
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 pound sliced bacon, diced
1 large onion chopped
1/4 - 1/2 cup sweet red pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Sour cream or creme fraiche and lumpfish caviar, optional

Cook bacon until almost crisp and then add chopped onion and red pepper to pan until onion is softened. Drain well - at least 30 minutes. Unroll pizza dough onto unto ungreased 14 inch pizza pan and build up the edges slightly. Prick with fork and bake at 350F until very lightly browned. Cool. Boil potatoes and mash with salt and milk. Spread the mashed potatoes over the pizza crust and top with bacon-onion mixture. Top with cheeses. Bake at 375F or until cheese is melted.

The main thing to remember is to get all the grease you can out of the bacon-onion mixture. This can be served as a meal or cut into pieces for hors d'oeuvres. I top it either with sour cream or creme fraiche and black lumpfish caviar.

Yum! My favorite pizza place makes a potato pizza, but it's not mashed, it's thinly sliced and roasted red potatoes. They're used to top an olive oil-brushed crust, and red onion, bits of pancetta, some cheese crumbles (had it with gorgonzola before, and feta other times) and rosemary are also added.

Yours sounds wonderful, though!

I used to get this potato pizza when I lived in CT:

Red Potato Pizza

** National award-winning pizza, first place for the most exotic pizza of the year. A plain crust with sour cream, sliced red potatoes, sharp cheddar cheese, chives and your choice of bacon, broccoli or both.

Barb! That sounds really, really good. I live in CT (for now; we're moving soon) so I'd love to try this. I googled it -- is it in Willington? That's 45 minutes from where we live, but we've been known to drive to New Haven for a special Thai dish that's only made there. For a really good pizza? I'd book a flight to another state!

We used to make a stuffed Mashed potato Pizza with Mexican cheese blend, bacon and fried onions.
Not being a big lover of Mashed potatos it was just ok to me, but it had a big following.
It was one of those things you had to eat on a plate with a knife and a fork.

Well, I just might have to check them out before we move out of state too. Thanks!

I've never heard of this, but it can't be bad. Potato. Pizza.

This recipe was a prize-winner a few years ago (not my recipe, just a recipe I came across) in the 'best pizza' issue of Taste of Home prize-winning recipes. I like it a lot. How can you go wrong with bacon and potatoes?

WRT some of the other recipes mentioned that you folks have come across - when you say 'a crust with sour cream' - I'm having a hard time picturing what happens to the sour cream after it is baked with the potatoes etc on the top of it ???

The sour cream takes the place of sauce. All I can say is I've had the one at Willington pizza several times, and it's so good.
