Today was a day to return to the leftovers from Canadian Thanksgiving. Everything we haven't already use (except for the cranberry sauce) has long been in the freezer. Along with many other items this has been clogging up the freezer. Now I must resist the urge to do any more Iron Chef theme nights unless they have an episode where the theme ingredient is gravy or stuffing.
So it was that I thawed out the leftover mashed potatoes and made mashed potato pizza. This gave me a chance to give my brand new pizza peel and pizza stone in their inaugural night.
I topped some pizza dough with the mashed potato, some browned bacon, and lightly steamed broccoli. Then I topped it all with shredded Grafton Cheddar and slid it onto the new pizza stone, cooking it for about 10 or 12 minutes on the new pizza stone at 450 degrees.
Here I am returning to my Italian roots with what is potentially the world's least Italian pizza ever made.
My great nonna would roll over in her grave if she saw this pizza.
