How to Make Leftover Mashed Potato Pizza
This Leftover Mashed Potato Pizza recipe is really easy to make! To start you will need a pre-baked pizza crust. This can be one you make at home or a pre-baked crust bought from the grocery store.
First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Then, top the pizza crust with the leftover mashed potatoes. Spread them evenly over the crust. Next, sprinkle with your favorite shredded cheese and chopped cooked bacon. Then, if desired add pizza seasoning or oregano.
Bake the pizza at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and the potatoes are warmed through. Once pizza is cooked, remove from oven and optionally top with sour cream and chives (to make it even more like a baked potato). Serve immediately.
