Loaded Baked Potato Pizza

This Loaded Baked Potato Pizza has all the flavors of your favorite twice-baked potato on a slice of pizza.

If you love twice-baked potatoes, you will adore this pizza. 

It's kind of like a cross between loaded baked potatoes and potato skin appetizers, and it has all of the flavors... sour cream, bacon, garlic, cheese, scallions, and, of course, potatoes.

The crust is light and airy, crispy and thin, and the perfect vehicle for thinly slice potatoes, cheese, and sour cream sauce. 

Once you pull this pizza from the oven, sprinkle it with some sliced scallions and serve. It's sooooo good!

The crust recipe can work with any of your favorite pizzas, and it is super easy to make. 

Ingredients in this Pizza:

For the crust, you will need flour, water, sea salt, and yeast. You can use either bread or all purpose flour. For the yeast, instant yeast or active dry yeast both work. 

You'll need Yukon Gold potatoes or mini yellow potatoes, such as Baby Dutch. You do not need to cook them in advance. The key is to very thinly slice them before adding them to the pizza. 

Bacon: Use thick-cut bacon that you've partially cooked in a skillet. It's less likely to burn in the oven while baking at a high temperature. 

Cheese: You can use Colby Jack cheese or a combination of Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese. 

For the sauce: Make a white sauce with butter, flour, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and sour cream. I could eat spoonfuls of this stuff. In fact, I made it again for my loaded baked potato breakfast burrito. So good.

How To Make the Pizza Crust:

The crust for this pizza is super easy to make. 

All you need to to do is combine the flour, water, salt, and yeast in a bowl and mix it by hand. Periodically while mixing, dip your hand in a bowl of water to help prevent the dough from sticking to your hand, and just stir the dough to make sure that you've incorporated all of the flour. 

Next, cover the bowl with a damp towel or plastic wrap, and let it rise for 18 hours. Just be sure to time it so that the 18 hour mark isn't in the middle of the night. 

Once your dough is ready, divide it in half, form each half into a ball, and wrap each in oiled plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to three days.

Once you are ready to make the pizzas, bring the dough out, form each into a disk on heavy duty parchment paper, and let rest until the dough reaches room temperature. 

After that, stretch each ball out into a 10-inch disk and top with the sauce, potatoes, bacon, and cheese and bake on a pizza stone or baking sheet. 

Prepping the Rest of the Ingredients:

To make the sour cream sauce, cook some butter and flour in a sauce pan until the flour is no longer raw. Add some chicken broth and then add garlic powder, and onion powder. Cook until thickened, remove from the heat, and stir in some sour cream and salt and pepper to taste.

Be sure to cook the bacon just halfway. Otherwise, it will burn while the pizza bakes. 

For the potatoes, you want to slice them no thicker than 1/8 inch thick. For ultra thin slices, I highly recommend using a mandoline slicer

The key is to get the potatoes thin enough so that you don't need to par-boil them in advance. 

I sliced my potatoes last, just before assembling and baking the pizza, but if you want to slice them a little bit ahead of time, be sure to save them in salted water and then dry them on paper towels before placing them on the pizza. 

Helpful Tools:

Pre-heated baking stone. I actually used my Emile Henry baking stone and had great success, but any pizza stone will work. 

Mandoline slicer, for slicing the potatoes. 

Half-sheet pan, for the last three minutes of baking. 

Heavy duty nonstick parchment paper. I use this for shaping the dough and transferring it to the baking stone. It makes it so easy. After about two minutes, remove it so that the pizza can crisp directly on the stone. 

Box Cheese Grater. For grating the Colby Jack.

My favorite tip for making pizza is the two-stone method, but if you don't have two baking stones, you can use a combination of a preheated baking stone as well as a baking sheet. It's much simpler. 

First, bake the pizza in the center of the oven on a preheated baking stone, and then, for the last three or four minutes, transfer the pizza to a baking sheet and bake it on the top rack. This will help finish the upper side of the crust. 

It makes the outer crust extra crisp.

To Make the Pizzas
  1. Heat the oven with a pizza stone on the middle rack to 500 degrees F. Make sure there is also a rack in the top position.
  2. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and gently press each ball into a disk on a piece of parchment paper. Cover with oiled plastic wrap.

Add the chicken broth, garlic powder, and onion powder, and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the sour cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Gently shape the dough into 10 inch disks by picking it up and stretching it with your fingers. Lay it back down onto the individual parchment papers and stretch and shape into the pizza rounds.
  6. Top each with the sour cream sauce. You may not need all of the sauce.
  7. Arrange the potato slices over the sauce.
  8. Take 3/4 of the cheese and sprinkle it over the two pizzas. Divide and sprinkle the cooked bacon over each of the pizzas.
  9. Top each with the rest of the cheese.
