Where to eat poutine pizza in Toronto

Poutine might be an iconic Canadian dish, but it certainly lends itself well to some monstrous mash ups.

While poutine pizza isn't new (Bannock makes its duck confit poutine pizza a menu staple), it's clearly catching on across the city. In Scarborough you'll find poutine pizza at Mr. Mike's, where the gooey mess is piled atop a plain cheese pizza.

It starts with house made dough slathered with deep red tomato sauce and dressed in shredded cheese. Once the pizza comes out of the oven, fries are applied carefully over the surface then sprinkled with cheese curds and more shredded cheese.

Traditional gravy in a choice of beef, chicken or vegetarian smothers the entire pie, and then it's boxed immediately so that all the components have a chance to melt and mingle together. It really is exactly what it sounds like and perhaps one of the best hangover fighters out there.
