Bacon Cheeseburger and Fries Pizza

My Fish N Chips Pizza worked out so well I decided to use that crust for a Cheeseburger and Fries pizza!

2 lbs russet potatoes, scrubbed well 
1 tsp salt 

1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp garlic powder 
1/4 tsp onion powder 
salt and pepper to taste 
3 TB olive oil, divided use 

Option 1:
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup ketchup
1-2 TB relish

Option 2:
1/4 cup mayo
1/3 cup bbq sauce

Option 3:
1/3 cup mayo
1/3 cup ketchup
2 TB yellow mustard

Option 4:
Straight BBQ Sauce or Ketchup

Option 5:
?? Your favorite Burger Sauce!

Amounts to taste, don't overload, of course you can add or omit to your preferred bacon cheeseburger toppings

1/2-3/4 lb ground beef (seasoned to preference, crumbled and cooked)
6-8 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
shredded mozzarella and  cheddar
purple or white onion
tomato slices

shredded lettuce


Preheat oven to 400
Slice potatoes with a mandolin slicer or food processor(I used my 4mm blade). Place in a large bowl and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Add 1 tsp salt and stir. Allow to soak for 15 minutes.
Drain and rinse potatoes, Pour onto a large towel and blot dry, then put back in the bowl.

Mix cornstarch and seasonings together.

Sprinkle 1/2 the mixture over the potatoes, toss to coat. Sprinkle on the remaining half and toss to coat again.

On a large pizza pan brush 1 1/2 TB olive oil making sure it is well coated.

Beginning at the outer edge layer the potato slices in concentric circles, overlapping about 1/2 inch. Press them down with clean hands to begin compacting them into a crust.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes until the potatoes are tender in the center and starting to crisp on the edges.

Prepare your sauce option 

Spread it over the potato crust

Add toppings to your preference

Top with cheese

Bake 20 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly

Allow to set 10 minutes before slicing, gently loosen crust with spatula before lifting off pan.

Top with shredded lettuce if desired and enjoy!
