Spud Pie…Freaking Yummy!

Ontario, Canada

Raising 2 beautiful kids who despised all tomato based stuff… even ketchup… who doesn’t like ketchup? Fussy children! One day my daughter asked me to make a pizza with all of her favorite things… Alfredo sauce… Potatoes… Chicken… Bacon…  and tons of cheese! Spud Pie was born… It’s probably one of the best non traditional pizza things you will ever enjoy… though it is a pizza… totally decadent…filling.
