I am kind of indifferent to the poor service we get at Boston Pizza here in Saskatoon but I do like their perogy pizza quite a bit.
It’s not the easiest thing to make at home but worth it and if keeps you from getting bad service and a $100 bill at the end of the night for the family, it’s worth it.
- 5 Potatoes (peeled and sliced thin)
- 1 Pizza Crust (homemade or bought)
- 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella Cheese (grated)
- 1 cup Medium Cheddar Cheese (grated)
- 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
- 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1/4 tsp Pepper
- 1 tsp Vegetable Oil
- 8 Bacon Slices (cooked and cut into pieces)
- 6 TBSP Sour Cream
- 1 jalapeno (finely diced, no seeds) optional
- 3 Green Onions (chopped)
- Dollop of sour cream for each piece
- Prepare pizza dough according to instructions or follow your favorite homemade recipe. Lately, I’ve beeng using gluten-free doughs. Taste different, but you get used to it.
- Pre-cook the sliced potatoes with spices in a large covered skillet with 2 cups of water. Cook on medium-high heat until potatoes are tender. Remove lid and simmer until liquid is no longer present. Add about 1 teaspoon of cooking oil; toss potatoes so they don’t stick to skillet. Watch carefully, as the potatoes can burn easily. Place cooked potatoes into a bowl and set aside.
- In a bowl, mix sour cream and diced jalapeno together. This is an optional step since the cayenne pepper should give this pizza recipe the spiciness already. The diced jalapeno gives it a little bit more kick.
- Assemble the pizza for baking. First, spread 3 tablespoons of sour cream onto the pizza crust. Then cover with sliced spicy potatoes. Spread the last 3 tablespoons of sour cream on top of potatoes. Spread grated cheddar and mozzarella cheese evenly. Do the same with crumbled bacon bits.
- Don’t make the same mistake that I made by assembling the pizza on a baking stone, then having to carefully remove the pizza and setting it aside while preheating the baking stone properly. That took another half hour or so. I’ll know better next time.
- Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Before cutting, allow the pizza to sit for about 5 to ten minutes.
- Serve each slice of pizza with a dollop of sour cream and some green onions.
