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!

  • 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.

  • 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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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

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. Read More

This was sooooo good!!! I used the Quick and Easy Pizza Crust recipe from this site and cooked the pizza on our grill outside rather than in the oven. My family loved it! Read More

I needed a last minute snack for a card party one night and this couldn't have been easier or tastier! I used a prepared pizza crust a pack of 4-cheese instant mashed potatoes a pack of crumbled bacon and some shredded cheese. I whipped it together in about as much time as it took to prepare the instant mashed potatoes. It was a hit at the card party and even more so with my husband. Read More

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! Read More
