Had you ever even considered potatoes on a pizza before seeing this recipe?


  • 1 1/3 lb (4 medium) potatoes - cut into 1/4" slices
  • 10 oz prepared pizza dough (refrigerated, packaged)
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 cup prepared barbecue sauce - divided
  • 1 small green bell pepper - cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Heat oven to 425 degrees. Place potatoes in shallow 1 1/2- to 2- quart microwave-safe dish. Cover with plastic wrap, venting one corner.

Microwave on HIGH 8 to 10 minutes until just tender; set aside. Coat 12-inch round pizza pan with vegetable cooking spray; press dough evenly into pan; prick all over with fork.

Bake for 10 minutes; set aside.

Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet over medium heat saute beef until browned; drain fat. Mix in 3/4 cup barbecue sauce.

To assemble pizza, spread beef mixture over crust; top evenly with potatoes and bell pepper. Drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce.

Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake 10 to 15 minutes until hot throughout and cheese is melted. Cut into 8 wedges.
