French Fry Pizza – At least it’s gluten free?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve see many variations of the french fry pizza combo, but none that actually looked like a pizza.  Using cheese as a glue to hold the fries together I was able to create a crust and build a pizza on top of it.  As an added bonus for those of you who want to be health conscience while eating a pizza on top of your french fries, it’s gluten free! Recipe is as follows:

French Fry Pizza

Serving: 12” inch pizza cut into 8 slices

 

Ingredients

2lb Bag of Frozen French Fries

Salt

2 Cups of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese – Divided

¾ Cup Pizza Sauce (Recipe Below)

 

Toppings – Optional

15 Slices Pepparoni (1 inch)

 

Procedure

Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F.

 

Fry your French fries in a large pot or fryer at 350 degrees for 3 ½ – 4 minutes until nicely golden and crispy. Remove from fry oil and place on a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle generously with salt. Eat some as a snack…it’s French Fries…we are only human.

As soon as French fries are cool to the touch line a 12” skillet or a pizza pan with the French Fries. Using the sides of the skillet or the edge of the pizza pan as a guide make a circular crust with the fries in a single layer. Fill in and holes with additional fries. Don’t be afraid to break the fries into smaller pieces to fill in the gaps. A nice even layer of fries is what you are looking for.

Take 1 cup of the shredded mozzarella and sprinkle in an even layer across the French fries. The cheese will act as glue, keeping your “crust” together. So be liberal with the cheese and make sure there is some covering the entire pizza in a single layer and in all the nooks and crannies. Place in 400 degree F oven for 5 minutes.

Remove pizza from oven. The cheese should be melted thoroughly. Set pan on a heat safe surface. Turn your oven setting to broil.

Spoon ¾ cup of the tomato sauce in an even and circular layer across the top of your pizza keeping about a half inch away from the edges. Now spread the remaining 1 cup of shredded cheese over the sauce also keeping a half inch away from the edge. At this point add your toppings (optional).

Place the pan back in the oven, which is now on broil, for an additional 5 minutes or until the top of your cheese begins to brown.

Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes before serving.

 

Pizza Sauce:

Makes about 4 ½ cups.

1 (15 oz) Can Tomato Sauce

1 (6 oz ) Can Tomato Paste

1 ½ Teaspoons Basil

1 ½ Teaspoons Oregano

2 Teaspoons Garlic

    • Oh man. Carb city. I want this in my mouth so bad. Mmmmm pizza and French fries, fug yes. It’s very creative. Thank you for sharing this with us. I found it on Gasket and I’m pretty excited. I’m going to try mine with sweet potato fries at some point. If anyone does it before I do, let me know how it came out.

  2. Definitely will try this. The instructions say to make the crust a single layer of fries. The accompanying photos seem to show two or three layers of fries. If it is two or three layers, does the cheese on top melt down to bond all the layers?
