Crispy Paprika Pork Skillet Pizza

Just love my latest creation ....  Mashed Potato Skillet Pizzas :)) 
So good, so easy , and I must say ..just a tad addictive ! 
It has gotten to the point where I'm making mashed potatoes just to make this,hahaha

Ingredients :
2 Cups Garlic Mashed Potato
1 cup Crispy Paprika Pork
1/3 Red Pepper , Sliced
4 Cremini Mushrooms, Sliced 
1/2 Yellow Onion , Sliced
1/2 Cup Aged Cheddar,  Sliced & Crumbled
1/2 Cup grated Mozzarella 

( Crispy Pork..   Sliced up Pork Loin .. caramelized in a pan with hot smoked paprika, butter and S&P .. simply pan fry it on low for an hour or so , stirring occasionally ) 

Preheat oven to 350F , pan can be preheated too if you like.  
Drizzle the pan with a bit of EVOO 
Use a fork to smush the mashed potato in the pan 
Start adding the toppings...   Crispy Pork, Peppers, Mushrooms ...

If your Mashed is cold, you will want to put the pan  (w/ mashed ) into the oven for 15 minutes or so to warm up .. before adding your toppings :) 

Add the Pork, Mushrooms, Peppers & Onions ... 

Top with your cheeses ..  and pop it into a 350F oven

Check it after 20 minutes ... if you like the looks of it, dig in ...   I usually leave mine in for about 30 minutes 

Thats it.. grab a towel , and take your skillet to your seat at the table or couch ! Enjoy :)) 

This recipe is part of my Creative Leftover series , any feedback would be greatly appreciated .

Peace , Love and Good Food !
