Mashed Potato Pizza

Mashed Potato Pizza
Sometimes inspiration hits you like a sledgehammer.

One day I was just on facebook, like I do, and I saw a girl I knew from high school posted a promo from a restaurant about how their "Mashed Potato Pizza is Back!" and I was just like "WHAAAAA??!"

And I knew I must make it.

What does a pizza consist of? Crust, sauce, cheese, toppings.
What does this pizza consist of? Crust, mashed potato, cheese, topping.

Pretty similar.

Pizza is always the perfect dish because you can completely, 100%, make it according to your preference. I used whole wheat thin crust pizza crust, because I like it. You can use whatever suits your fancy-whether that be store-bought or your favorite recipe. You can also use regular, plain old mashed potatoes or jazzed up ones (like garlic mashed potatoes! Or ones with sour cream!)--and you can use fresh mashed potatoes or save on time by using leftover. Top it with your cheese of choice. And then whatever toppings make you happy-which for me are chives/scallions. For you it might be bacon. Who knows!?

Also, if you're extra special and get your hands on some STAR Grilling Cuisine Cooking Oil (with garlic!) it makes a tasty addition when brushed onto the pizza dough before baking. Just saying.

It's fall. Comfort food season. What's more comforting than pizza AND mashed potatoes?!

Mashed Potato Pizza
  • Pizza crust dough (store-bought or your favorite homemade kind)
  • Olive oil
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Cheese (shredded or sliced, whichever variety you prefer. I used a mix of cheddar and cojack)
  • Toppings: chives, scallions, bacon bits, etc., to taste
  • Prepare pizza stone or baking sheet. Prepare dough according to package/recipe directions, and preheat oven to the temperature specified for the crust.
  • After the dough is rolled out and ready, brush with olive oil (and garlic powder, if desired). 
  • Spread mashed potatoes evenly over the pizza crust. Cover with a layer of cheese.
  • Bake according to package/recipe directions.
  • One fully baked, top pizza with desired options (in my case, chives).
  • Let cool then slice and serve!
