I’ve always been really fond of pierogi pizza but it’s really hard to find a pizza place that has it on it’s menu around here. So, I decided to try my hand and making some from scratch.
I made my own dough to use by following a recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod. I used half of the homemade dough for this pierogi pizza and the other half for strombolis, which I will post here in a few more days.
The pizza turned out amazing! It was so full of delicious flavor. I used a lot of mashed potatoes and cheese so it was a very filling dinner. You can adjust the amounts you use if you don’t want your topping as thick.
This pizza is not very figure friendly but it was a Friday night and I felt like we deserved a special treat at the end of a hard week.
Easy Pierogi Pizza
Pizza Dough Of Your Choice
3.3oz Betty Crocker Instant Mashed Potato Packet
1/4 Teaspoon Onion Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 Cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1. Preheat Oven to 400°
2. Prepare instant mashed potatoes according to packet directions. While potatoes are still warm; stir in the onion powder, garlic powder and cheddar cheese. The cheese will melt into the potatoes and turn them a light orange color.
3. Arrange your pizza dough into the desired shape. Spread mashed potatoes evenly over top of dough.
4. Top with mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with another handful of cheddar for extra color.
5. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is golden brown along the edges.
Note: I used onion powder because my husband and I are not fond of eating onions. You could always omit the powder and use fresh onions instead.
