Hello, hello! It’s been a bit quite around here on the blog no? I actually had quite a few recipes planned for the last few days, but it was holiday season and I’m also on vacation. So let’s just say that a few days off turned into a whole week, and now I’m back with a delicious and indulgent recipe. Okay, I know, I know, we’ve all indulged a bit in the past few days, and it’s probably not the right recipe to come back with, but these Pizza Fries are too good not to be shared on the blog!!!
And these Pizza Fries are just so simple that I think it’s borderline dangerous. I mean such delicious food should never be this easy, but it is!
All you need is a bag of frozen fries, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices to make these delicious Pizza Fries.
I actually have been wanting to make a version of loaded fries for awhile now (because the only thing better than french fries is loaded french fries lol), and the other day I was craving both french fries AND pizza! I know, I know, my food cravings are indulgent at times (okay who am I kidding? :P) but seriously this was a good idea!
I kind of wanted to shout euphoria, because these Pizza Fries are euphoria worthy. Especially if you’re a pizza lover, and I think it’s safe to say that pretty much almost all of us are pizza fans! 😀
So even though these Pizza Fries are ridiculously easy to make, I’m going to walk you through the very basic steps and also give some suggestions on how you can customize these according to your taste!
How to Make the Perfect Pizza Fries
1.) I used frozen french fries for convenience and the kind I used was crinkle cut fries. You can use any kind of fries you like, or even make homemade fries! I just prepared the fries according to the package instructions.
2.) After the frozen fries were prepared, I topped them with pizza sauce, then added shredded mozzarella cheese and finally pepperoni slices. I put the pizza fries back into the oven, and baked for about 5 minutes or so until the cheese had melted and was golden brown.
3.) These pizza fries are best served fresh and are perfect for large gatherings, parties, and even game day!
4.) I used a smaller dish to display the pizza fries in the pictures you see here (don’t you just love that ooey gooey cheese?) but I would suggest that you bake these on a large baking sheet so that the french fries are spread evenly in one layer.
5.) You can customize these pizza fries by adding all your favorite pizza toppings such as olives, onions, green bell peppers or even jalapenos, or whatever you like! 🙂
6.) Oh and I’d also like to add that since this is such a customizable recipe, you can alter the quantity of ingredients I’ve listed in the recipe card below according to your own preferences and taste.
These pizza fries are so delicious, I can bet you won’t be able to stop until you finish them all!
- 1 medium sized bag of frozen french fries - about 1 pound I used crinkle cut
- 1 cup pizza sauce I used store bought
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 3 ounces sliced pepperoni
Prepare the frozen fries according to the package instructions.
Spread the pizza sauce over the fries, then top with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices.
Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and is golden brown (you can turn on the grill if you want a more golden brown color of the cheese).
