Loaded Baked Potato Pizza

Recipe of the Month

This month's recipe is one of our family favorites: Loaded Baked Potato Pizza. If you've never had
baked potato pizza, you don't know what you're missing. Even in a house full of picky eaters, everyone I know loves putting away the thick, creamy slices of this chunky variation. It's easy and inexpensive to make and very filling. Grab yourself a ready made pizza crust, and give this cozy idea a try.



Baked Potato Pizza

1 pizza crust
3 to 4 baked potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon of melted butter
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
1 cup of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
4 to 6 pieces of crumbled (turkey) bacon
1 cup of shredded mozerella
1 cup of shredded Cheddar
Chopped green onions or chives to taste. 

In a small bowl, mix melted butter, garlic, and Italian seasoning with sour cream. Fold in chopped potatoes. Pre-cook pizza dough for five minutes on 400 degrees. Spread on potato mixture. Sprinkle bacon, cheese, and onions over the top. Bake for 15 minutes more or until lightly brown.

Stay balanced,
