Description

Pizza fries are an easy gameday appetizer made with 3 ingredients. Waffle fries, pizza sauce, and mozzarella cheese. Grab a fork because these fries are cheesy, saucy, and incredibly addicting.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound bag frozen waffles fries
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce (marinara sauce is fine)
  • 8-ounce bag of shredded mozzarella cheese (used about 11/2 cups)
  • Chopped basil, optional
  • crushed red pepper flakes, optional
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450℉.
  2. Bake fries first without toppings. If using a 12-inch cast-iron skillet, a pound of waffle fries will take about 35-40 minutes to bake (because of overlap). Toss halfway through to cook evenly. If using a baking sheet, follow cooking instructions on the bag. Do not underbake as cheese/sauce that will add moisture. Shoot for a nice crisp fry.
  3. Season fries with salt and pepper and top with a layer of pizza sauce and then mozzarella cheese. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until cheese is melted. I like to broil for the last 1-2 minutes to give the cheese a golden finish.
  4. Remove from the oven, top with chopped basil, and serve with a fork.

Notes

You can opt for regular cut fries as well, the waffle fries just do an amazing job of holding onto the toppings better.
