The best way to cook a potato
It is best to cook the potato ahead of time for this recipe. While preparing to write this post, I went over to the Idaho® Potato website to see what I could learn about the best method of cooking.
They recommend cooking the potatoes with the skins on. Baking the potato is the best way to get all of its nutrients. Before boiling, scrub the potato clean and once they are cooked, you can remove the skins if you wish.
Did you know that you can cook potatoes in your microwave and still have them come out like you had baked them in the oven? Idaho® Potato tells you how to do it on their website!
Boosting the flavor of your potatoes
I decided to boil my potatoes for this recipe. When I did so, I added some salt and garlic cloves to infuse flavor into this recipe.
Once the potatoes were cooked I had a hard time keeping my fingers out of the bowl and snatching up a few pieces to pop in my mouth. I absolutely love the golden Idaho® Potato and how creamy and flavorful it is!
How to make a Steak and Potato Pizza
Now, about this Steak and Potato Pizza! It is so easy to have it ready to put together in no time flat for your party gathering. You can make your own pizza dough recipe, or buy a premade dough right at the grocery store.
Steak and Potato Pizza is also a great way to use up any leftover steak you may have in the refrigerator. If you don’t have leftover, it is cool to buy the stir-fry steak pieces in the store and quickly cook them up with some butter and lots of garlic. You want a lot of garlic flavor in this pizza!

- Bake in 425 oven for 20 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese begins to turn brown.
- Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles. Cut and serve.
Tip for If you are cooking your steak specifically for this recipe: I like to pan sear my steaks in butter, then put in the oven to finish off with crushed garlic and thyme sprigs. For this recipe I took the butter drippings and chopped the roasted garlic and put on the crust of the pizza before putting the cheese on.
