The pizza I made actually was inspired by a picture I saw on This is Why You're Fat (a truly disgusting website on the best of days). Typically, there's nothing but food submissions from people trying to gross other people out. But this pizza, oh, this pizza, looked like a gift from the heavens. Potatoes, alfredo, bacon, cheese. I don't think I know a single person who wouldn't love a slice of that.
Don't look at me like that! I know it sounds weird to have potatoes on a pizza. I know you're probably thinking that it's just my crazy pregnancy hormones making this pizza sound so amazing to me. Trust me, you'll love it too. My hubby couldn't get enough, my best friend was jealous and looking for leftovers, and Aloysius was content. I'd say for a recipe made up after seeing just a picture, it was a pretty successful evening.
Potato Alfredo Pizza
Recipe by me
1 medium pototo, sliced and boiled (choose a small baking potato or a couple small reds; boil until just soft)
Pizza dough (feel free to make your own or cheat like I did and buy some; I used Pillsbury thin crust)
1/2 alfredo sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese (or however much you want)
Handful bacon bits
- Preheat oven according to pizza crust directions or according to the recipe you've used for the dough.
- Spread the alfredo sauce within a half-inch of the edge. Top with the cheeses, slices of potato, and bacon bits. Top with more cheese if desired.
- Bake according to pizza crust directions (I actually go a little longer because I hate a doughy crust and like a little crunch). Serve with salad.
