Top This, Saint Paddy's Day Edition: (Baked Potato Pizza à la Pete Zaaz)

The Baked Potato Pizza at Pete Zaaz (covered here on Slice), a quirky Crown Heights pizzeria that has recently garnered much well-deserved attention, just might be the perfect solution to your Saint Paddy's Day pizza needs. The pie adopts everything you love about a loaded baked potato: cheddar, scallions, bacon, and crème fraîche. For the potato component, Pete Zaaz pizza-makers Pete Entner (No. 7) and Glen Hudson (Pulino's) top the pie with purple potatoes cooked in cream, which get gratinéed under a sheath of cheddar on the pizza itself, making this pie both beautiful and outrageously crave-worthy.

Pete and Glen recently took the baked potato pie off the Pete Zaaz menu, and replaced it with a pierogi pie that uses similar ingredients. If you missed the baked potato pie the first time around, don't fret—you can make it for yourself at home. Follow the slideshow to find out how.
