Hey all! Haven’t posted here in ages, but I couldn’t go any longer without sharing this recipe. It was adapted from another I found that worked well, but wasn’t quite what I wanted. So I decided to take that general idea and adapt it to be a little faster (something I can make entirely after getting home from work). Here’s what I came up with. Sorry I don’t have any pictures yet. I’ll take some next time I make a batch, and add them in. Enjoy!
2.5 lbs potatoes, cubed to 1/2″-3/4″
2 tbsp bacon fat
4 oz pepperoni, sliced
16 oz bulk sausage (or link with casings removed)
1 bell pepper, diced
1 medium onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp salt
2 tsp italian seasonings
1 pound shredded mozzarella
24 oz marinara sauce
In non-stick skillet, brown potatoes in bacon fat on medium heat. Move potatoes to 9×13 glass baking dish. Brown sausage and pepperoni for several minutes before adding onion, garlic and red pepper. Cook until the onions are translucent, then add potatoes back to the mix for a few minutes just to get some of the pepperoni juices spread around on them. Add your salt and seasonings. Move everything back to the glass baking dish and stir in the marinara sauce. Top with mozzarella cheese, cover with foil and put into the oven at 350º for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for additional 15 minutes. Allow to cool and serve.
We’ve also added mushrooms and black olives to the mix on some occasions. You can modify this recipe any way you like to match your favorite pizza toppings.
Thanks for reading!
