Sorry, but I found this pizza a little bland. I wanted to love it as I love the idea of potato pizza but it just didn't work for me. Maybe if there were more spices or a sauce or something? I'm a vegetarian but I can see how the bacon might have added that missing something...

Very hearty, savory pizza and quite good. This would make a great brunch pizza. I did follow the suggestion to use some crumbled bacon which made Dh happy. Next time I will make sure to get the potatoes cooked to the correct texture so that I can get them sliced thinly enough.
