This Supreme Mashed Potato Pizza is comfort food at its finest - homemade pizza is topped with mashed potatoes, cheese, bacon, sour cream and chives.
- dough for one large pizza refer to my recipe link in the post
- 5 small Yukon Gold potatoes
- 4 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp whipped cream cheese
- 2 tbsp sour cream
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups (6 oz) cheddar cheese shredded
- 8 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
- fresh chives chopped
- sour cream for topping
Peel and chop the potatoes and place in a saucepan. Fill with cold water to an inch above the top of the potatoes. Simmer on the stove top until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain the potatoes and add the butter, cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of sour cream and salt. Mash until smooth. Set aside.
Preheat a pizza stone in the oven at 500 degrees.
Shaped your dough and brush lightly with olive oil.
Evenly (and gently) spread the mashed potatoes on top of the pizza crust. Top with the shredded cheddar cheese (amount of cheese is approximate). Use more or less to your liking.
Bake the pizza until cheese is starting to brown and the crust is cooked through, 10 - 14 minutes.
Top the pizza with the crumbled bacon and chives. Slice and serve the pizza with sour cream for topping.
