Starkey's Mashed Potato Pizza

Recipe by  

"Mashed potato pizza is a pizza using mashed potatoes instead of sauce. I modeled it after a pizza I had at Willoughby Brewing Company, if you like this one, try the original! You can use any toppings you like on your baked potatoes, this is how I like it. Bon Appetite!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cook bacon in a large deep skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  2. Spread the pizza dough out on a lightly greased baking sheet. Spread mashed potatoes over the dough, leaving a small crust around the outside if you want. Sprinkle the cheese and bacon evenly over the potatoes.
  3. Bake the pizza in the preheated oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 20 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes, then slice into wedges and top each one with a small dollop of sour cream.

This is a great recipe. I use to get something similar at a nearby pizza place when I was in college. I add green onions to mine for extra zing.

I expected to love this, but really didn't. I expected to need a bit more seasoning than I would usually put in mashed potatoes, and added it. But the taste was still somehow way too bland for us. I tried adding some corn & spinach to the second batch (like I said, we had expected to love it), but it didn't help either. I think I would have to put on some type of savory white sauce under the potato layer, or pour something over the top to give it some kind of spark.

OMG! My friend made this last night (we did appetizers for the game) and it was awesome. Everyone loved it and so easy to make! As we watched her make it (thinking she was insane) the only suggestion she had, was to buy the pizza dough from the pizzeria, as it taste better then store bought. She even makes this as a regular dinner, as her husband and kids (6 & 4) love it! And I can see why!

It was ok but not great. I was hoping it would have tasted like the Pierogi Pizza I used to get at home but it was lacking something. I added browned onions on top but still needed something. I will try again after I get a recipe for the filling for Pierogies.

I make this but I use Ragu parmesan & mozzerella sauce before putting the potatoes on the crust. It is good, the kids love it.

I used to make a similar one for son when he was smaller. I have used sweet potato too and added crumbled sausage to it. Yummy!

this was good. definitely not something to die for. maybe a white sauce wouldve added more flavor like some people are saying.

I used a Boboli crust, brushed it with olive oil and spinkled a little garlic powder on it. I topped this with regular mashed potatoes. Sauted some onion and added that with the bacon. I used Monteray Jack cheese on top. I used a pizza stone that had already heated and broiled it for about 7 minutes. I thought it was okay, but my SO loved it. Next time I would not use the olive oil - it made the potatoes hard to spread over the crust. Also, I'd use a little more cheese. Will probably make again at my SO's request.
