Pepperoni and Cheese Pizza Fries

Sharing is caring!

Pizza Fries are the ultimate appetizer!  I’m a pizza lover!  I could eat pizza every single day of my life.  I’ve created pizza on so many things over the years, so why not french fries!  Pizza Fries are the perfect dish to enjoy while watching some football in the coming months… but it’s also filling enough to be a meal or an appetizer depending on how much you eat.

You can’t go wrong with fries loaded up with marinara sauce, melted cheese and the toppings you love!

Adding marinara to the top of the french fries

I started by heating up a batch of frozen fries that I had purchased at the grocery store.  They were seasoned wedge fries, but any type you love will work.  You could, of course, make them homemade and either bake them up or fry them.  You want to make sure they are good and crisp though so they can survive the marinara sauce. Here is my favorite homemade potato wedge recipe!

Once I pulled them out of the oven I drizzled the marinara sauce on top of the fries.

Then load it up with grated mozzarella cheese and your favorite pizza toppings… we went with pepperoni.  Next time I’m definitely trying Hawaiian Pizza Fries.  How amazing would fries be loaded with cheese, ham, and pineapple?

Place on the lowest shelf in your oven and broil for 5-10 minutes till the cheese is bubbling and starting to brown.

Ingredients

  • 1 bag frozen french fries or make your own homemade wedges
  • 8 ounces marinara sauce I like a simple tomato and garlic one
  • 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pepperoni more or less to your liking

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven according to the frozen french fries bag direction.
  • Spread out the frozen french fries on a cookie sheet and cook as directed until they are crisp. (you want them crisp so they don't get soggy with the marinara sauce)
  • Once the fries are crisp, layer them in the base of a cast-iron skillet or pan.
  • Set your oven to broil so it can start to heat while you finish prepping.
  • Pour the marinara sauce over the fries.
  • Sprinkle the grated mozzarella cheese on top of the fries.
  • Finish with the pepperoni.
  • Put the pan back in your oven set to broil on the lower shelf. Broil for about 8-10 minutes, just until the cheese has melted and is just starting to brown.
  • Serve hot!
