Ingredients

  • 6 small russet potatoes
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup pizza sauce your favorite
  • 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • ½ cup pepperoni sliced or diced diced
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat Oven: Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Bake Potatoes: Scrub the potatoes clean. Brush each potato with olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of salt. Place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for about 35 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. Let the potatoes cool a bit.
  • Prep The Potatoes For Filling: Cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the inside leaving just a bit on the skin. Brush again the inside of the potatoes with olive oil and place in the oven again for about 5 to 10 minutes, until they start to turn crispy around the sides, turn them over and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes until nice and crisp.
  • Assemble: To assemble your potato skins, fill each skin with pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella, and diced pepperoni.
  • Bake: Transfer back to the oven and bake for an additional 5 to 7 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  • Serve: Garnish with parsley and enjoy while they're still warm.

Notes

  1. Replace the pizza sauce with alfredo sauce for a twist!
  2. Try out different cheese and toppings on your potato skins for a mix of pizza potato skins!
  3. Pop the potato skins back under the broiler for a minute or two for an extra crisp potato skin.
  4. Replace the parsley with chopped basil for extra flavor!
  5. Store leftovers by sealing them in an airtight container. Properly stored, your potato skins will will last in the fridge for 3-5 days.
