A smashing appetizer

 When the moon hits your eyes like a crispy pizza smashed potatoes, that’s amore! These crispy pizza smashed potatoes are a Dan-tastic appetizer for an italian dinner or for a party spread. You can whip these up in about 40 minutes, and they’ll be gone in the blink of an eye. Creamy potatoes with fresh mozzarella, mini pepperonis, and marinara give you one flavor packed pizza bite.
