Day 5: Tofu Sour Cream & Potato Pizza

I am a MASSIVE pizza fiend and haven't had any pizza since I started this challenge. So I checked out my favourite pizza shop Pizza Capers to try and replicate their amazing Exotic Potato Pizza. Their pizza calls for sour cream, mozzarella, bacon and heaps of cream-based mushroom sauce.
