Bacon, mozzarella, naan and potatoes, all combined to form an amazing pizza! This is a must try recipe! If you LOVE potato skins or pizza, you’ll love this! Skeptics beware, this Loaded Potato Naan Pizza variation is very tasty! Trust us, you’ll want a bite!
I am an avid lover of both potato skins and pizza unfortunately both have the tendency to be greasy and weigh you down afterwards. This recipe provides a delicate balance and lets me combine my love of both. The caramelized onions add a buttery decadence to the pizza above and beyond the already mouth watering potatoes, bacon and cheese.
Finished with a drizzle of sour cream and your spicy ranch sauce and you have a great loaded potato pizza!
- 1 whole wheat naan
- 1 small red potato
- I small yellow onion, sliced
- 1 slice of bacon
- ½ tsp. chives (fresh or dried), chopped
- 1 tbsp sour cream
- 1 tbsp ranch dressing
- A smidge of cayenne pepper
- ¼ cup monterey jack cheese
- ¼ cup mozzarella cheese
- Olive oil
- In a pan over medium high heat sauté the bacon to desired crispness. Remove the bacon and add the shallots to this pan. The onions need to caramelize which can take anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes, this usually occurs when the onions develop a brown color. This step takes a lot of extra time but adds a sweet and buttery flavor to the onion but it is totally worth the time.
- While the onions are caramelizing and near completion start slicing the red potato super thin. If you have a food processor this would be a perfect application for it. Now it's time to start assembling our pizza
- Place your naan on your pizza stone or non-stick pan, brush a thin layer of olive oil over the naan, add your potatoes to the pizza in thin layers, bacon, caramelized onions and finally both kind of cheese. Put the pizza in the oven at 400 degrees for approximately ten minutes and check for desired doneness. Depending on the thickness of your potato slices this can take longer!
- Remove from oven and add chives and sour cream. In a separate bowl mix ranch dressing of your choice with a smidgen of cayenne pepper to add a little heat for a spicy ranch sauce. Slice and Enjoy!
