Pizza flavors with potatoes? Sounds wonderful, Claudia!

A great snack for football parties. These look delicious!

What a clever idea. I have been thinking of posting some crockpot recipes. I've been trying to come up with some good twists on old favorites and then you go and do it. This sounds good but what do you call it piztatoes or pozza?

What a terrific idea. Curt is right, these would be perfect for football games!

Pam said...

This is potato heaven, for sure! I'd like a serving now while the Giants/Atlanta game is on!

I love it! Your creativity amazes me. These are irresistible!

Tina said...

Very clever recipe! Who can resist a cheesy potato-yum! I also like that this is a crockpot recipe. As far as I am concerned, it does not have to be football season to enjoy these

Dear Claudia, I don't have a Crockpot and have never experienced using one. I can see the wonderful dishes that can be achieved using one. This looks wonderful. Blessings, Catherine xo

Claudia said...

Thank you for being so amazing - these are wonderful and the perfect food to have warming on a chilly Sunday. (I don't watch the game - I just eat!) But others do both!

This is so cool. I want to try this in my electric pressure cooker so I can do it all in one pot-plus I wouldn't have to wait 6 hours to eat :)

Pizza and Potatoes in the same dish? Brilliant! Looks delicious :)

I have just one word, and it's "yum." Potatoes with tomatoes and cheese is a great idea.

lacy said...

Yum! Pizza potatoes! What a great idea, would devour these in my house! :)
