This is the best of two worlds… pizza and potato skins……..and super duper, extra easy.

Store bought pizza crust…….you can make your own if you wish. Baked potatoes…..make ahead or just pop them in the wave right before you make the pizza ………that’s what this lazy pants did…..lol.

In a small bowl place the butter, some garlic and Italian seasoning, and ,melt……again the wave is my preferred method…….I really had my lazy pants on the day I made this!!

Fry up some bacon, applewood smoked is my fav, but use the kind you like best. It should be crisp, but don’t over do the crispness… it is going into the oven.

Sour cream is usually the topping for potato skins, but on this pizza it is the bottoming……I know I made that up….but it’s kinda funny???

Spread the sour cream over the pizza crust , getting in an even layer and close to the edges of the crust…..use more sour cream than the recipe calls for if necessary.


As I eluded to before, I was slightly lazy this day, so I popped the potatoes into the microwave….a.k.a. wave…..they only took about 8 minutes. I let them cool just until I could handle them and then sliced them into 1/4 – 1/2 inch rounds. I didn’t measure them but that is my guess. Use your own discretion. Then brush with the butter mixture.

I put the potato circles on top of the sour cream, then topped with the remaining ingredients. Into a preheat 400* oven for 15 – 20 minutes.

This pizza was fantastic………just like potato skins with a little extra something……the crust. But the crust gave an extra crispiness to the pizza that was ……well if I do say so myself… perfect!
