Pizza Stuffed Potato (glutenfree)


Pizza Stuffed Baked PotatoThis was the first “substitute” meal I made while my family ate gluten in front of me.  I don’t ever force those around me, especially my family, to give up their favorite foods.  So, when the family asked for homemade pizza a mere week after my doctor told me to give up gluten, I found a way to eat pizza flavors, too.

Stuffing a potato is nothing new.  Usually, I see them stuffed with Mexican flavors or traditional bacon and cheese.  In this case, I simply took all of my favorite pizza flavors and added it to my potato.  These days, I’d rather grab a gluten-free pizza crust and top it with pizza, but at the time, I didn’t know what was available.  Actually, there is a lot more available now than there was even four years ago.

Pizza Stuffed Potato

  1. Cut open cooked potato.
  2. Carefully, scoop out the majority of the flesh.
  3. Combine the sauce and half the cheese with the potato, coarsely mashing.
  4. Put the potato/pizza sauce mixture back into the jacket of the potato.
  5. Top with remaining cheese and other toppings.
