My friend Amanda recently posted that she made Poutine Pizza. The idea was so over the top and fun sounding that it was only a matter of time before I tried it.

For anyone who doesn't know, Poutine is the wonderful mixture of french fries, cheese curds, and gravy. Seems like an odd thing to put on a pizza, but believe me, it works. Gravy is substituted for the pizza sauce, so there is no confusion of flavours.

I used Amanda's recipe, but didn't go the authentic distance and pick up cheese curds - I just used mozzarella. We also used a poutine add-in, using some deli ham that we thought would taste great on the pizza.

Step 1. Cook up some gravy. I used a package of Poutine Gravy which made 2 cups.

Step 2. Pre-cook your french fries. We used strait cut fries from a bag.

Step 3. Press your favourite pizza dough (we used homemade) into a pizza pan. Add enough poutine gravy to cover dough (as the pizza sauce).


Step 4. Cover in shredded mozzarella. Add some chopped deli ham if desired. Bake for about 20 minutes at 425°F until dough is mostly cooked. 


Step 5. Remove pizza from oven and top with pre-cooked french fries. Spread more shredded mozzarella on top.


Step 6. Top with the rest of your poutine gravy and return to the oven for about 10 minutes (or to desired melty-ness of cheese). Broil for a few minutes to get cheese to bubble.


Poutine Pizza!!!!

This was a really fun treat night meal. It tasted like two amazing things: (1) poutine and (2) fresh rolls dipped in gravy. It was a delight! It was very filling, so we ended up with leftovers that weren't as good the next day. So this might be a great pizza for sharing.

    1. Leftover french fries are the saddest. They were once the tastiest... but give them some time in the fridge and no more.

  4. Looks wonderful. In my kitchen anything can go on pizza crust. That's the fun.

    1. We got in the habit of just putting normal pizza stuff on ours, but now that we tried this we are excited to make weird combination pizzas. It is fun!

  5. I was raised to try anything and have fun with it. Great stuff. I also made pizza dough tarts, using my new tart cavity pan. Next, I am going to try the pizza dough in cupcake pans. Just to see how it works.
