My favorite grocery store used to make these in their bakery/deli section and they were just awesome!  They stopped making them a few years ago, and I have sorely missed them, so I decided to try and recreate it at home.
I started with my usual pizza dough recipe, but a store bought crust would work also.

Here is what else you need:
Garlic butter-I make my own with 1/4 cup of melted butter and 1 Tablespoon of minced jarred garlic
2 cups of garlic mashed potatoes-I cheat and used the garlic boxed kind
1/2 red onion chopped and sauteed in a little butter
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or more if you like)
1 cup of provolone or mozzarella  cheese

After your dough is spread and raised on the pizza pan, spread the crust with the garlic butter up to an inch from the edge.  Then you can either mix the onion and potato together and spread on the crust or save the onion for the top of the pizza.
