Pepperoni Pizza Potato Skins

Pepperoni Pizza Potato Skins (

Serves: 4 (two skins per serving)
Points: 4

2 large potatoes, baked, cooled completely, quartered lengthwise
A few sprays of nonstick cooking spray
2 oz. pepperoni, finely chopped
1/3 c. pizza sauce
1/8 tsp. dried oregano, red pepper flakes or garlic or to taste
1/3 c. part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 425ºF. Thoroughly spray a baking sheet with a non-stick cooking spray. Slice just the top portion (which is about two thirds of the potato flesh) off of each potato quarter. (You can save the potato flesh for later cooking, if you’d like). Layer two teaspoons of pizza sauce over each potato quarter; then sprinkle the pepperoni and cheese over the potatoes.Gently place the potato skins on the baking sheet that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray. Bake until cheese melts and potatoes are hot, approximately 6 to 8 minutes. Season to taste with red pepper flakes, dried basil, garlic or oregano.
