Pizza Stuffed Potatoes

smores bars 014Can I tell you, I love pizza…

It’s not like I love lamp, or puppies

It seriously must be my favorite thing. I’ll types and flavors.

If I were to die and could have a last meal It would be pizza.

Brick oven, hmmm thin crust, for both. Crushed tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, spinach, roasted tomatoes, Portobello mushrooms.

The second would be whole wheat crust, garlic olive oil sauce, fresh mozzarella, peaches, black berries, and grilled chicken.

enough about me. What would you want for your last meal?

Do you think vegans would want a steak? I mean who’s counting you’re dying right?

If I couldn’t have gluten i would probably eat 10 baguettes and 20 doughnuts or something.

smores bars 010Lets be honest. I’m single and on a budget. Potatoes are cheap.

I had everything else in my pantry.

and I always have cheese. Honestly If I can make it taste like pizza I will.

nice thing about this is they are gluten-free.

smores bars 012Also since I’m single and typically cook for myself I can eat this in 4 sittings.

This was a two-pound potato people!

I mean that’s bonkers huge.

But you can totally turn this into a dinner for two. Also you can get normal sized potatoes.

Pizza Stuffed Potatoes

4 medium russet or Idaho potatoes

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup very finely chopped green peppers (optional)

1/2 cup very finely chopped mushrooms (optional

a handful of pepperoni slices, sliced thin and then chopped (optional)

1/2 cup pizza sauce (or more, depending on your preference)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Poke holes in potatoes with a fork and bake for about 40-45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Once cool, slice around the inside of the potato and scoop out the flesh, be careful not to poke holes in the bottom (it’s okay if you do – it happens!). Put scooped potatoes in a bowl and mix with 1/2 cup mozzarella and 2 tablespoons each of peppers, mushrooms and pepperoni. Mix well. Scoop mixture back into potatoes and spoon pizza sauce over top. Add more toppings and cheese. Bake for 10-15 more minutes.

Other pizza flavors you could use: buffalo chicken, bbq chicken, margherita, pierogi, and of course – an array of toppings!
