Pizza Potatoes

Here’s a quick dinner that takes very little planning but turns out filling and satisfying. In the recipe I saw originally, it had tiny tiny pepperonis, which I at first thought were halved tiny tomatoes. I wanted to keep the tomato idea in there (makes sense, for pizza?), so added some sun dried tomato pesto, and I think it was a nice addition.

IMG_4258 IMG_4251Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds baby potatoes, any color, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons pizza seasoning
  • 2-3 tablespoons sun dried tomato pesto
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (or more to taste, I added at least twice as much)
  • heaping 1/4 cup mini pepperoni (or chopped up larger pepperoni)

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Spread the potatoes on the pan, drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes, then sprinkle the seasoning, salt, and cheese over the top. Stir together the whole mixture.

IMG_4252Bake 20-30 minutes, until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork. Add the pepperoni, and more cheese if desired, and stir together.

IMG_4254Bake another 2-3 minutes, then serve hot.
