Mashed Potato and Bacon Pizza
Total Time:35 minutes
When making mashed potatoes, be sure to reserve a portion for this tasty pizza.
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 12-oz. frozen pizza dough, thawed
- 1 1/2 cups mashed potatoes, seasoned
- 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1/2 cup canned corn, drained
- 1/4 cup slivered red onions
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Asiago cheese
- Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spread oil on a large sheet pan, and place the thawed pizza dough on the oil. Press the dough out into a 12-inch circle, and then put the pan on top of the stove so the dough will be warm as it rises. Let stand for about 5 minutes. Bake the pizza dough for 7 minutes.
- Remove dough from oven and dollop spoonfuls of mashed potatoes over the crust. Gently spread to cover, leaving a small rim uncovered. Sprinkle the crumbled bacon, corn and red onions over the mashed potatoes, and tap lightly with a spoon to make sure they sink in a little. Cover with Asiago cheese.
- Bake for another 15-18 minutes, until the cheese is golden brown and the crust is golden. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into 8 wedges. Serve immediately.
A simple, mixed green salad, drizzled with a vinaigrette dressing and topped with cranberries and chopped nuts makes the perfect side to this flavorful dish.
