This pizza is not for the faint of heart. It is filling, boy! But it doesn't leave you feeling too full. I had two slices and was set for the night (two homemade-sized slices, mind you, probably equivalent to one and a half slices of pizza shop pizza.)
DapperDan? Well. He ate the other 3/4 of the pizza and didn't end up in a coma from overeating. So noted.
Hounddog? She begged for a slice, but was refused! My pizza, you bad hounddog.
...Okay she's not bad, she's good. But she's always after my pizza. What can I say? I raised her right!
Let me tell you people. It was good. There is no smell quite like bacon and onions cooking in olive oil. Nothin' like it.
Make this pizza as soon as humanly possible and give me a slice, while you're at it why dontcha!
Ring Tum Ditty and Baked Potato Pizza
Inspired by: Paula Deen
Serves: Two hungry Malloys
3 slices of bacon, chopped
1 cup chopped onions
1 (15 oz) can whole tomatoes, drained, juice reserved
1 cup corn
Salt and pepper
1 cup grated mozzarella
1 russet potato, baked and sliced to 1 inch pieces
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Saute bacon and onions together in a heavy pot over medium heat until bacon is crisp and onion is translucent.
3. Add reserved tomato juice to pot and then squish the tomatoes through your fingers into the pot. Add corn, thyme, and salt and pepper, to taste, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until desired thickness.
4. Add cheese and stir until melted.
5. Roll out your dough to desired thickness (I rolled ours out pretty thin, and it still worked out, even with the heavy topping).
6. Place Ring Tum Ditty over dough. Spreading out evenly.
7. Top with potato slices.
8. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes and eat a whole pie with your husband in a sitting.
