It is no secret that I love to experiment with pizza. I can’t get enough of trying different flavor combinations and changing them up until I find just the right one. I made this pizza last week and my husband declared it the best pizza I have ever made. And I must admit, it was pretty good. It seems strange at first to put potato on a pizza, but the flavor was out of this world.
Potato and Bacon Pizza with Garlic Cream Sauce
Enough pizza dough for one large pizza or 1 pre-baked crust, such as Boboli.
3/4 cup homemade garlic cream sauce or jarred Alfredo sauce
1 large potato peeled and very thinly sliced
4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
2-4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
In a large skilled, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat and cook sliced potatoes for about 10-15 minutes or until they are cooked through. Removed from heat and set aside.
Roll out your pizza dough and spread on a thin layer of garlic cream sauce. Add a layer of cheese, followed by the cooked potatoes. Layer on another thin layer of cheese and bake your pizza according to the directions on your pizza dough.
Remove the pizza and sprinkle with the cooked and crumbled bacon.
Slice, eat and enjoy!
