When your love of nachos, fries and pizza all combine into one at last. Dig into these supreme pizza fries – crispy waffle fries topped with supreme pizza toppings!
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted an entree recipe (3 months to be exact if you count a salad), but all I can seem to think about these days are desserts and appetizers! I’ve got football on the brain despite needing to sell most of our season home game tickets due to other conflicts. I’ve honestly not been very inspired when it comes to cooking dinner lately and have been making the same things and/or very basic things for awhile. And before the wedding I was trying to make sure I fit into my dress (because I didn’t until a couple days prior) so nothing all that inspiring was being made. But today’s recipe could be dinner if you believe in yourself.
Nachos can count as dinner or an appetizer, so why would it be any different if we put similar toppings on top of fries? But what if those toppings were actually more like pizza toppings? Is this too much of a stretch? Cause we ate these for dinner and felt no shame. There were some veggies on top! I cooked waffles fries, piled them up like chips, sprinkled toppings that would normally be seen on a supreme pizza (minus the mushrooms because neither of us like them), and threw them back into the oven to get all melty like nachos. Even served them with a side of pizza sauce for dipping.
While we made a meal out of them, these supreme pizza fries would most definitely be a hit for football viewing or any party requiring an appetizer. And obviously it’s easy enough to change the toppings per your preferences – the possibilities are endless! I think pesto or alfredo would also be great dipping sauces, or ranch if you’re into that. Melted garlic butter anyone? You get the point.
