Pyzy ([pɨzɨ'] (About this soundlisten)) are a type of dumpling (kluski). The dish is most commonly referred to in its plural for pyzy, as it is most commonly served as a main course meal: large oval-shaped kluski, characteristic to Polish cuisine.[1]

Potato pyzy[edit]

Potato pyzy are prepared from boiled potatoes, optionally with added flour, eggs and salt, cooked in boiling water. Stuffed with meat, twaróg or mushroom stuffing, alternatively served without stuffing, and instead served with bacon, lard or fried onion.[2]

Dishes prepared similar to pyzy are inter alia: kartacze, goły, potato knedle and Silesian dumplings (kluski śląskie).[3]

Leavened pyzy[edit]

Leavened pyzy or pyzy drożdżowe are prepapered from flour, milk, butter, sugar and salt. These are cooked in boiling water (similar to pampuchy) or on steam. In literature, pyzy are said to also be prepared by being baked in an oven.[4]
