Pizza Potatoes

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

I’ve made these for my sons for years—like most kids, they love that tomato sauce-mozzarella synergy. But recently I’ve started sneaking in extra veggies. The kids still love these “pizzas.” Use leftover sauce on pasta the next day.
  • 4 medium-large baking potatoes
  • 1 ½ to 2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 2 medium-sized carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 16-oz. jar natural pizza sauce
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella or mozzarella-style nondairy cheese
  • Dried oregano, optional
  1. Bake potatoes in microwave.
  2. Steam vegetables in one saucepan until just tender. Drain. Put in food processor with pizza sauce; purée until very smooth.
  3. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; arrange face up in heat-proof dish. Fluff with fork; spoon on as much sauce as each will hold. Spread 1/8 cup cheese on each; add dash of oregano, if using. Microwave about 3 minutes, or until cheese melts.

I made these for my husband whose favorite food is pizza (and could also benefit from sneaky vegetables!). He loved them, and rated them 5 stars. He had no idea that he was eating broccoli!
