    BTW: If you want a hint as to what this tastes like (before you make your own)---Think of those Baked potato skins that they scoop out most of the potato, put cheese & bacon bits in, and bake it again. Now just think about using "Home Smoked Cheese" and a different kind of smoked meat on each slice.

    Thanks,

    Completed Smoked Potato Pizza (pieces around outside show what is on each slice)

    Cold-smoked potatoes, baked, sliced, pan browned, and arranged into a circular pizza crust. Has my smoked mozzarella & cherry tomatoes on the entire pizza, except half of the top one, to show viewers the potato slices. I smoked all of the additional toppings. They are (clockwise, starting at 3 O'clock)---Belly Bacon, Smoked Pepperoni, Canadian Bacon, Venison Bacon, Venison Sausage, and Buckboard Bacon:

    Thanks SOB!

    Did those pics take a long time to come up on your computer? The first time I brought them up they took a long time even for me. I thought that's why nobody was opening my post, and/or making any comments. I thought either there's a problem with the pics loading up, or nobody likes me any more.[​IMG]

    Thanks again,

    Bear

    Pics are of perfect size, Bear. I thought your entry definitely was outside of the box, and something I had never seen before. True props for the range of creativity on this one. [​IMG]

    Great Job Bearcarver...

    Great pics, and neat idea....    The only thing you didn't cover was the taste, how did it taste? 

    Your idea has given me something new to try for an appetizer,  thanks...

    No sir....just got here.  The pizza looked fantastic.  That was a lot of work.  Good job to you Sir.  Nice out of the box thinking.  And I don't have a single problem with the picture loads.

    Dude,

    Thanks! ---------It was GREAT! You won't believe how really good it is.

    I said this above:

    BTW: If you want a hint as to what this tastes like (before you make your own)---Think of those Baked potato skins that they scoop out most of the potato, put cheese & bacon bits in, and bake it again. Now just think about using "Home Smoked Cheese" and a different kind of smoked meat on each slice.

    And this:

    Our son came up to have some, and the three of us ate 6 of the 8 slices for dinner. Another amazing thing is the next day I nuked the two left over pieces, and my wife & I ate them. They were just as good as they were the night before (Not dry or mushy)!

    Fantastic idea Bear.  Did the potato stick together so the slices came out or did you have to use a pie server type thing to lift them out?

    Really nice looking.

    Thanks bbally!

    Good question. The cheese pretty much held the top together (my plan), but you still had to use a small pie server. LOL---Except the one with only half cheese on it. That first night, my son & I each ate two pieces, the wife ate one, and my son & I tore that half cheese one apart by hand, as he was walking out the door.[​IMG]
