Mashed Potato Mayhem Don’t call the food police, just accept it. Mashed Potatoes taste great baked on top of pizza. The potatoes get creamier, the crust gets crispier and Mashed Potatoes transform an ordinary pizza into something to talk about. Something to crave. And I’m not the only one that thinks so, Chef Scott Nelson of Pizza Luce does too. Watch the How to Make Mashed Potato Pizza Video for added instruction and entertainment.

Notes: If you are particular about your eggs, you can cook (fry, poach, scramble) the egg separately. For individual pizzas as seen in the video, use about 3.5 ounces of dough for each pizza. Watch the How to Make Mashed Potato Pizza Video for added instruction and entertainment.
1) Roll out pizza dough and poke with a fork.
