Spud Pie, Is Freaking Yummy

So raising two beautiful kids that despised all tomato based stuff even ketchup, yes ketchup, recipes were tough! So one day about 20 yrs ago my daughter asked me to make a pizza without tomato having all of her favorite things; Alfredo sauce, potatoes, chicken, bacon and lots of cheese, Spud Pie was born. It’s probably one of the most delicious nontraditional pizza things you will ever try, though it is a pizza in my book. Totally decadent and filling. Are you ready for Spud pie?
