Hope You All like this---It's got a lot of Great Smoked Items in & on it.
BTW: It even tasted better than it looks. You really have to try it.

Here we go:
#1  Take 4 nice sized potatoes, and stick them in your smoker without heat for 2 hours, above a Hickory filled A-MAZE-N-SMOKER, lit on one end.
#2  Remove those smoked potatoes from the smoker and bake them.
#3  Let them cool awhile, and stick them in your fridge over night to cool & firm up.
#4  Remove Smoked Baked Potatoes from Fridge, and slice them into 1/2 thick slices.
#5  Put the slices in a Medium hot frying pan with butter, until both sides of all of the slices are well browned & buttery (this could take a few batches).
#6  Lay out all of the slices that will fit in a circle on a Pizza pan. Cut little pieces of some of the smaller slices to fill in little voids between the larger slices.
#7  Take some of your smoked Mozzarella and grate it.
#8  Put as much of this grated cheese on the potato Pizza crust as it takes to hold it together, and broil it just long enough to melt the cheese.
#9  Partially fry any of the uncooked toppings you will use on the Pizza, like Belly & Buckboard Bacon, and set it aside.
#10 Now if you want to keep each topping separate, you will have to make your cuts now.
#11 Slice up enough cherry tomatoes to cover the whole pizza, and spread them out now.
#12 Spread a little more Smoked Mozzarella Cheese on top of the tomato slices.
#13 Now if you want to do it the way I did, cut & lay out on individual slices, Belly Bacon, Smoked Pepperoni, Canadian Bacon, Venison Bacon, Deer Sausage, and Buckboard Bacon.
#14 Spread the rest of the grated Smoked Mozzarella Cheese on the whole thing.
#15 Place in Oven at 350˚ until the top cheese is melted, and everything else is nice and warm.
#16 Remove from oven, and let the diners select which pieces they want.

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)!

You don't have to do any of this exactly like I did. I did all of these things to try to win a contest by entering the most original (out of the box), and time consuming meal.
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,

Bearcarver

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.

Thanks again,

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.

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...
 
Naw Pics were just right... My pics take a long time when I am first loading them also.I wish there was a way to load multiple pics at once like we used to.

Any who   are those pies ready yet??? Mrs SOB is hungry!!

Bear, that pizza made me drool!  All the delicious smoked meat toppings and tater fixins.
PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
 Then ya topped it off with smoked cheese. That sealed the deal right there.
 
Zero comments and only a few looked at this post. Are my pictures too big. Take too long to load?

Please let me know.

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:

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.
 
Fantastic looking pie, Bear.  Certainly looks like a winner to me!

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.
