This is an Idaho favorite, and especially my family's. We make it every time we have company (and I always receive compliments!). This is a recipe I created after eating the same style of pizza at one of the college pizza shops here in town.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place potato slices in a deep skillet and cover with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain; set aside to cool.

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

  • Heat cream, butter, and garlic together in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted, about 5 minutes. Add Parmesan cheese; stir until melted. Reduce heat to low and simmer sauce, uncovered, until thick, about 5 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease 2 pizza pans.

  • Combine warm water, honey, and yeast in a large bowl. Let stand until yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir oil into yeast mixture. Mix in flour, 1 cup at a time, until dough starts to come together. Turn out dough onto a well-floured surface. Knead, adding more flour as you work, until dough is no longer sticky. Divide dough into 2 pieces and roll out to the size of your pizza pans; transfer to greased pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crusts are lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and spread sauce over both crusts. Cover sauce with potato slices. Crumble bacon slices over potatoes and cover with mozzarella cheese.

  • Bake pizzas in the preheated oven until crusts are golden brown and cheese is bubbly, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute white sugar for the honey, if preferred.

Use small baking sheets instead of pizza pans, if desired.
