Mashed Potato & Bacon Pizza

In continuation with “Thanksgiving Leftover Week” on the blog, I’m sharing a new pizza recipe that might seem a little strange at first, but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!

One of my favorite pizzerias downtown San Diego, Basic, introduced me to mashed potato and bacon pizza almost 10 years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since!

Pizza: good, mashed potatoes: good, bacon: good, cheese: good, the combination: GREAT!

I’m currently sitting at my dining room table (AKA “my office”) with a big cup of french pressed coffee and a table full of pink, leopard and three year birthday party decorations.

The coffee: totally normal. The birthday decorations: not so much!

Today I will be celebrating Little Leopard Book’s 3 year blogoversary with a pink & leopard themed birthday party photo shoot captured by my amazingly talented friend and photographer, Stacy Keck.

Prosciutto Arugula Thin Crust Pizza

Hi, my name is Whitney and I’m a pizza addict.  Yes, I will admit, I have probably never met a pizza I didn’t like.

That could be the reason this is my 4th pizza recipe on the blog.  From thin crust, to deep dish, vegan to gluten-free, I’m a fan!

Ingredients (crust – makes 1 pizza)

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 oz yeast
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 3 cups arugula
  • 4 oz prosciutto
  • 1/4 cup romano cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Start making the crust by combining the water and yeast.  Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes or until the mixture begins to bubble.

Next, add the flour, salt and mix until a solid ball forms. Knead the ball of dough for 5 minutes then place into a large greased bowl and cover.

Allow to rise for 30-45 minutes then place the dough on a baking sheet and roll into a thin crust.

Action shot!

Next, spread the pizza sauce on top.  I used the same recipe that I used on my deep dish pizza because it was amazing! I highly recommend you do the same!

Next, top with 2 cups of the arugula.

♣ Vegetarian Option: Remove the prosciutto and replace with red onions for a delicious vegetarian pizza.

♩ Gluten Free Option: Replace the flour with a gluten-free flour blend for a crust that will come out similar to my Gluten Free Italian Garlic Rolls or replace the crust completely with my cauliflower based Gluten Free Pizza Crust.
