Recipe Details
Ingredients
  • 1 spray(s) cooking spray
  • 2 large plain baked potato(es), cooled completely, quartered lengthwise*
  • 1/3 cup(s) store-bought pizza sauce
  • 2 oz pepperoni, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup(s) part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/8 tsp dried oregano, red pepper flakes or garlic, or to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Slice top half or two thirds of potato flesh off each potato quarter. (Reserve potato flesh for soup or mashed potatoes, if desired). Spoon about 2 teaspoons of pizza sauce over each potato wedge; sprinkle wedges with pepperoni and then with cheese.
  3. Carefully place potato skins on prepared baking sheet. Bake until cheese melts and potatoes are hot, about 6 to 8 minutes. Season to taste with oregano, red pepper flakes or garlic. Yields 2 potato skins per serving.
Notes
*Make sure the potatoes are cooled completely before slicing and scooping out the flesh or you may have a hard time forming the skins. Thinly sliced, Italian-style cooked chicken sausage also makes a tasty pizza topping; try it instead of pepperoni (may affect SmartPoints value).
