Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Scrub and dry potatoes, then prick several times with a fork and place onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Remove, cool, and peel.

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels; crumble.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Lightly grease a pizza pan.

  • Mix pizza crust mix, water, and oil in a large bowl with a fork until ingredients combine. When dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Shape dough into a flat circle and place on pizza pan. Build up edges slightly.

  • Bake pizza dough in preheated oven until crust is firm and begins to brown, 5 to 6 minutes.

  • Toss butter with garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and potatoes in a large bowl. Combine sour cream and ranch dressing in a small bowl; spread over crust. Top with potato mixture, bacon, onions, mozzarella cheese, and Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in preheated oven until cheese is melted and lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.

Really good! I think stirring the potatoes in the garlic-herb butter is what puts it over the top. Read More

Great pizza though we followed the boxed pizza mix instructions instead of the recipe. We loved it but the kids didn't find it appetizing. It does taste so much like a fully loaded baked potato! Read More

Yum! If you ever had Green Mill baked potato pizza that they no longer make, this one is very similar. Very fun and different way to make pizza. Read More

Cheated and used pizza dough from the local bakery. Then I accidentally peeled and cut potatoes before cooking. Easy fix is to put potatoes in single layer in a shallow dish add spices and two tablespoons of water cover and microwave for 2 min let stand for five. Great as is. Read More

I use scratch dough when making pizza my wife and I love baked potatoes and I wanted to give it a go. Outstandingly delicious although I felt I didn't put enough ranch sauce on so we just dipped it the leftover while eating. so good Read More

I was looking for something similar to what I used to get from a place in Mpls and I finally found it! To cut down on the prep time I bought a pre-made pizza crust as well as bacon crumbles and I microwaved the potatoes on high for 5 min on each side until tender. I also added broccoli and chopped tomatoes. Delicious! Read More
