Baked Potato Skins “Pepperoni Pizza”

These are Baked Potatoes Skins "Pepperoni Pizza". They are lightly crisp and the pepperoni, marinara sauce, and cheese mixtures provide the right amount of saltiness that is needed. I think these are perfect snacks for game day.

Baked Potato Skins “Pepperoni Pizza”


Baked Potato Skins
4 Medium Size Russet Potatoes, scrubbed
Olive Oil
Sea Salt

Pepperoni Pizza/Filling
1 Cup Thick Pasta or Pizza Sauce (store-bought, any flavor)

About 1 ½ Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
16 Slices of Pepperoni

Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Preheat the oven to 400˚F/200˚C.

Baked Potato Skins:Place the potatoes on a large baking tray. Bake the potatoes for 40 to 50 minutes, or until softened. Remove from the oven and let the potatoes cool slightly.

Cut each potato in half and scoop out the flesh and leaving about ¼ inch of the potato skin.

 Brush the potato inside out with olive oil and season with sea salt. Then bake in the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes on each side until they are crisp. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Fill about 2 Tbsp of pasta or pizza sauce, top-up with mozzarella cheese, (as much as you like), freshly ground black pepper and pepperoni.

 Place the potato skins on a baking sheet, and bake for about 15 to 16 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
