Pizza is one of our favorite things to cook. It’s easy to make even on rushed nights, especially with a batch of homemade pizza dough in the freezer. This recipe is even easier than others because it doesn’t involve making a sauce. Since the topping possibilities are practically endless, I never get bored with pizza. My summer favorite was this chicken and fresh herb pizza, and now I’m loving this potato pizza for fall. We’ve made vegetarian potato pizza for a couple of years now, changing up the cheeses and herbs we used, but I have to admit – I like this version the best because it has bacon.
This is one of those simple recipes where the few ingredients really shine. Crisp bacon, roasted potatoes and lightly caramelized onions make such a good combination that no sauce is needed. As far as the cheese goes, Eric and I disagree over which one works better with this pizza. He’s not a fan of blue cheese, but I love the way its tanginess goes with the onions and fresh thyme. He prefers the smokier flavor that’s achieved when we used smoked Gouda. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
