BBQ Potato Pizza


  • 1 store bought pizza crust*
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, any brand
  • 2 cups potato, diced & cooked
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced in thin strips


  1. Place pizza crust on a pizza tray or a large cookie sheet. Cover with barbecue sauce, as you would with pizza sauce.
  2. Top with potato, cheese and red onion and bake until golden and bubbly on top, cook according to pizza dough directions.

*I purchase dough from a local pizzeria (Cozzola’s Pizza) or in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.

I roast the potatoes for about a half hour in the oven 425°F with a little olive oil, salt & pepper. I also roasted the onions with the potatoes prior to putting them on the pizza, that way I didn’t have to slice them as thinly and they wouldn’t have as strong of an onion flavor.
