Ingredients

  • 2 baking potatoes washed and scrubbed
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup pizza sauce any kind
  • ½ cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • About 12 pepperoni slices
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Prick each potato with a fork, place onto a medium baking pan and bake for about 50 min, or until tender on the inside. Remove from oven. Then set oven to broil.
  • Cut each potato into three sections, lengthwise, so that you end up with two ends and a middle. Set the middle aside, as it isn't needed to make these skins (I baked the middles along with the potato skins).
  • Using a melon baller or spoon, scrape out the inside of each potato half, leaving about a 1/2 inch of filling.
  • Brush each potato skin with melted butter and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place potatoes on baking pan and broil for two minutes on each side. Then remove from oven.
  • Top each potato with pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoni, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  • Broil for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until cheese has fully melted.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Serve with a side of warmed pizza sauce, if desired.

Notes

Potato skins will keep in the refridgerator for up to three days.
