I thought, taking the idea of pigs flying, of taking it to the SPACE AGE, and remembered, also, of course, the Muppets famous clips of Pigs in Space...which was pretty silly 30+ years ago :)

OK, so I roll out of bed Friday and tell the wife "I wonder if you sliced a potato, could you make a pizza???" and she tells me "bake a potato, scoop it out and mix it with all the pizza stuff, then bake it some more!" and I tell her "good idea, I have had rebaked potatoes, I will DO BOTH and we will see what we like better!"

Anything can become pizza.  Pita, tortilla, we made eggplant not long ago and the store sent a good recipe to turn zucchini slices into pizzas.

OK, so I had these huge baking potatoes.  I sliced one into 6 long, flat, 1/2 inch slices, dabbed a tiny bit of oil on there, baked them for half an hour at 400, took them out and topped with killer tomato sauce, veggies, and (nondairy for us) cheese, baked again for 20 or so minutes.  And did the rebaked potato too, and we served both with some avocado slices.

The winner?  FOR SURE it was my original idea, potato pizza! Forget rebaked, yummmmmmm! Have a great Saturday!

Interesting concept. I've used zucchini in lieu of pepperoni but never potato in lieu of bread. I'd be tempted to leave the potato whole and have it baked, all-dressed.

Has it really been that long since Pigs in Space? Piggy's reaction to Gonzo as Vader still cracks me up.

Looks pretty enticing; you come up with some really good recipes. Have you been over to Idiot's Kitchen and seen Claudia's Apple Bars? There is a gluten free version too.

The Muppet Show is remembered fondly. Who could forget Sam the Eagle, "Why, under my feathers I'm ........naked!"
