Homemade Perogy Pizza!
You’ve probably heard of some of the tricks that food stylists, photographers, and even some other food bloggers use to photograph the “perfect” setup. Shaving cream for whipped cream. Red Sharpies to make strawberries look better. Completely bizarre ways to treat food!
We... don’t. Whether for my cookbooks or this blog entry, what you see is what we eat. Many times, what you see is SO fresh out of the oven, that we’re both ravenous and drooling by the time it’s being photographed.
Aside from “why spend the time, money, and effort to make something inedible”, and it being sort of a matter of food respect for us, we also find a lot of the food styling tricks to feel... dishonest. So, we don’t do it.
The problem is, when food is made to eat, rather than made to photograph, sometimes it looks less than stellar. Today’s recipe? I’ve been holding off on posting it, just because the food in the photo looks so “blah”.
You know what, though? Some of the ugliest, least photographable foods out there are the best tasting. So, I’m going to share my homemade perogy pizza recipe. It’s ugly, but it’s awesome!
This recipe was inspired by the perogie pizza I used to order at "East Side Marios" back home. It's been so long, I don't remember what the sauce was that they used - it wasn't perogie filling though - and they used sliced potatoes, rather than mashed. Was awesome, but I wanted to improve on it!
This homemade perogy pizza is the ultimate comfort food, combining two of my favorite foods. It also works up quicker than actual perogies... but if you're interested, I have a recipe for THOSE, too: Perogies Recipe!
