Taste of BPs -- my fav: Spicy Perogy Pizza

The last number of years, my order at BPs is a no-brainer. I love convincing my family that's where we should eat out just so I can order my item. Spicy Perogy Pizza. Just typing that makes my mouth water.

The other day I had a craving for it, but it wasn't in my budget to visit our local BPs. So google came to my rescue, and this copycate recipe made me take action!

Boston Pizza's Spicy Perogy 'Copy Cat' Pizza

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)
5 TBSP Sour Cream
For Garnish:
3 Green Onions (chopped)
Dollop of sour cream for each piece

Prepare your favorite pizza dough recipe and roll out to fit pizza pan. I like to pre-bake a homemade or bread dough crust for about 5 minutes per side before assembling the Pizza.

Place potatoes and spices into 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. Spread evenly, 5 tablespoons of sour cream onto the pizza crust. Top with spicy potatoes. Add cheddar and 1/4 of the mozzarella cheese. Add cooked bacon pieces and cover with the remaining mozzarella.
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.

Yield: 1 large Pizza

cooked and chopped up bacon.

thinly sliced potatoes cooking in spices and liquid

homemade whole wheat pizza crust

grated cheddar and mozzarella

sour cream spread over the pizza crust

followed by the cooked potatoes

and topped with 1/2 the cheese, the bacon, and the last of the cheese. Ready for the oven!

Yum, ready to eat!!

It did not disappoint. Tasted truely similar to the BPs version. The only change I would make is to increase the cayenne, as I like more zip to it. Otherwise, a big hit!

Sorry BPs, my family won't frequent your restaurant quite as often, but it still will be my regular order when we do.
