1/3
cup milk
1/2
teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1
cup diced pepperoni
6
oz. (1 1/2 cups) pizza cheese blend
1
cup pizza sauce
2
tablespoons finely chopped green onions
  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Pierce each potato with fork. Place directly on oven rack. Bake at 375°F. for 1 hour or until tender. Cool slightly.
