My boys love homemade pizza. Sometimes we get in a pizza rut, so I try to look for recipes that are not our usual ham and pineapple. Taco pizza is one of our favorites. My 12 year old actually found this Bacon Potato Pizza recipe in one of my cookbooks and and asked if we could try it. I have never heard of potato pizza, but I figured anything with bacon is bound to be good. 🙂

Recipe for Potato Bacon Pizza. This is not your typical pizza recipe, but it just might become a new favorite!

This pizza is far from traditional. It doesn’t even have sauce! But it was hearty and delicious, and the whole family loved it. I was worried that my kids would complain about the onions, because they will not touch pizza with onions. But since it cooked up with the bacon, it just blended right in and added great flavor. Even the 6 year old finished off his pieces without picking anything off. Score!

Bacon Potato Pizza

1 recipe for pizza crust (You will have dough left over, I made breadsticks.)
3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup milk
Salt to taste
1 pound bacon, diced
1 onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Boil potatoes in salted water till tender. Drain and mash potatoes. Add milk and salt to taste. Set aside. Roll pizza crust out on a 14″ pizza pan and prick all over with a fork. Bake at 350° for about 15 minutes or till barely browned. Meanwhile, partially cook bacon in a medium hot skillet. Drain off all but about a tablespoon of the fat. Add onion and red pepper. Cook till bacon is crisp and veggies are tender. Drain really well. Spread the mashed potatoes over the crust. Cover with the bacon/veggie mixture. Top with cheeses.  Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or till cheese is melted.

Loaded with bacon, red peppers, cheese, and mashed potatoes, this Bacon Potato Pizza may become a new favorite at your house!

    This sounds good! Being in S. Korea we have encountered many different pizza topping, fish, potatoes, beef bulgogi. You name it, they put it on pizza. Maybe I’ll talk my husband into trying it! My favorite pizza is chicken supreme. With red onions. YUM!
