I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Grilled Mashed Potato & Bacon Pizza
...in your mind.

Grilled Mashed Potato & Bacon Pizza

Makes one pizza - An amazingly stupid sounding, but fantastic combo. I like using the raw dough you can buy - but it works well with a store-bought crust like a Boboli (see #10 in directions if you do).


  • 1 ball pizza dough, or
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked mashed potatoes
  • 2 ounces Ready Bacon, diced and cooked until crispy
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  1. Lightly oil a baking sheet and spread out dough until it’s about 1/4 to 1/3 inch thick - it doesn’t need to be a perfect circle (in fact it rarely is)
  2. Warm potatoes in a small pot on stove
  3. Combine garlic & oil in a small bowl and set aside
  4. Heat grill to medium
  5. Lightly brush top of dough with oil and put oiled side down on the grill
  6. Once bottom of dough has good grill marks - 5 to 7 minutes, lower heat and flip dough over
  7. Brush top with garlic oil, then spread with the mashed potatoes, bacon and then sprinkle with the cheese
  8. Close grill lid and let cook until cheese melts, about 3 or 4 more minutes
  9. Remove, slice and eat - but that was obvious, right?
  10. For a store bought ready crust, brush the top with garlic oil, then add the potatoes, bacon and cheese and bake in a 425 oven about 12 minutes
