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! http://www.copykatchat.com/copykat-recipes/50285.htm
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
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
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.
