Perfect for pizza lovers, this delicious side dish or appetizer is a great option for lots of occasions. Whether you are looking for some game day eats or something to serve while watching a movie, everyone will love this tasty recipe.
If you are a french fries lover – whether you prefer tater tots, steak fries, or any other type of fries – you may not be able to go back once you have a bite of this cheesy waffle pizza fries recipe. The combination of french fries and pizza takes it over the top!
One of the great things about this recipe is that it is not made with any limited availability items. Everything you need should be able to be purchased at your local grocery store.
There are some really easy ways to change up these pizza waffle fries to meet your dietary needs. If you want this to be vegetarian, replace your pepperoni with meat-free pepperoni or veggie crumbles. To make it vegan, use meat-free pepperoni as well as vegan cheese. Make sure to find something that will melt because you want your cheese bubbly and melted!
This simple dish is naturally egg-free and nut-free, so it is a fun snack for lots of people. They should also be gluten-free, but that may depend on the brand of waffle fries you choose. As of the writing of this post, Ore Ida waffle fries are gluten-free, but you will want to double-check any brand you buy. Ingredients may vary based on seasonings and factory preparation, but potatoes themselves do not contain gluten.
Loaded Waffle Fries Recipe
How To Make:
16 oz bag waffle fries, frozen
1 cup pizza sauce or marinara sauce
3 oz pepperoni slices (or more to taste)
1-2 cups mozzarella cheese
Fresh parsley garnish (optional)
Preheat your oven, take out a baking sheet, and spread out a good amount of waffle fries, if not the entire bag. Bake the frozen waffle fries according to the package instructions.
*Note – you do need to bake these before adding the other ingredients or you will have soggy fries.
Once baked and a nice golden brown, remove your fries from the oven and keep them on the baking dish. Leave the oven on.
Spoon pizza sauce all over the top of your fries.
Lay your pepperoni all over the top of the pizza sauce. You can use 3 oz of pepperoni for this – or a little bit more if you want to pile on the goodies.
Sprinkle your cheese on top of the pepperoni. Use a decent amount of cheese here. If I’m cooking for myself, I go for 2 cups, but for my son, who doesn’t care for melted cheese, I go for 1 cup. Your choice!
Put your pan back into the oven for 6 – 8 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove your pan from the oven and move your pepperoni pizza fries onto the serving dish of your choice. Top them with parsley (if you choose) and serve immediately. Enjoy!
Can I Add Seasonings To This Pepperoni Pizza Waffle Recipe?
Yes! This delicious combination is meant to resemble a pizza with your favorite pizza toppings, so the sauce should have enough of the seasonings you need, but you’re welcome to add more. If you want to add some Italian seasoning, fresh basil, or red pepper flakes, those could give you some additional flare.
