There’s  a lot of things I’ve eaten fries with, but this was the first time I’ve eaten them with pizza sauce. I have to say, it’s pretty good.

I saw an image for pizza fries on “This is why you’re fat.” And my first instinct was that I wanted to do this. This is a perfect party appetizer.

I made my own fries, then topped it with mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, more cheese and some mini pepperonis. I melted it in the oven for a few minutes before serving. Yum.

Pizza Fries


For fries
2 medium sized potatoes
oil for frying

for topping

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup marinara sauce
10 mini pepperoni


1. Peel skin off potatoes. Slice into fries, about 1/4 inch thick. Use a paper towel and dry potatoes as much as possible. Pour oil into frying pan, about 2 inches in height. Drop in potatoes. Turn on stove to medium high heat. When oil heats up the potatoes will begin to bubble. Continue to let the potatoes fry and bubble until they turn brown and crispy on all sides. You may need to use a spatula to separate potatoes so they don't stick together. Remove potatoes when done, soaking excess grease on paper towels.
2. Add half the cheese, sprinkling over plate of fries. Scoop marinara sauce on top of cheese. Add remaining cheese and top with pepperoni. Heat in oven at 350F for 5-8 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

    Grand idea. It’s upscale cheese fries with fancy ketchup if you think about it…

      Hmm, I never thought of it that way but that does make sense.
