Pizza Fries

Heeey I’m back! Aaand most of you are probably on vacation today. Oh well, you’ll get back to your computers eventually…

IMG_6254I ate this as a tasty dinner, but it probably makes more sense as a sharing thing at a party or when you have friends over to watch a show/movie. Either way, it’s pie crust, which is delicious, and pizza, which pretty much everyone loves, so it’s gonna be a win.

Ingredients:

  • 1 container of prepared, refrigerated pie crusts (2 per box)
  • 1/2 cup of pizza sauce, plus some for dipping
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • enough pepperoni slices to cover the bottom crust (or other fairly flat pizza topping)
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • oregano and other spices as desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Remove the pie crusts from the fridge and let come to room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Spread out one crust on a cutting board. Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the crust.

IMG_6248Add the second crust, then brush the top with olive oil and sprinkle on some parmesan and oregano, and any other herbs you might find pizza-y.

IMG_6249Slice into 1/2″ slices in one direction, then into quarters in the other direction (your outside edges will be smaller than the center pieces).

IMG_6250Transfer to the lined sheet and spread the ‘fries’ out a little bit – this may require an additional pan.

Tight fit if you want to give them all a tiny bit of room.

Bake 30 minutes, or until slightly golden.

Pizza Fries

Lightly adapted from Oh, Bite It!

  • 1 container of prepared, refrigerated pie crusts (2 per box)
  • 1/2 cup of pizza sauce, plus some for dipping
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • enough pepperoni slices to cover the bottom crust (or other fairly flat pizza topping)
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • oregano and other spices as desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Remove the pie crusts from the fridge and let come to room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Spread out one crust on a cutting board. Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the crust, getting close to the edges, then top with pepperoni. Add the mozzarella, then the second crust. Brush the top with olive oil, then sprinkle on some parmesan and oregano, and any other herbs you might find pizza-y.

Slice into 1/2″ slices in one direction, then into quarters in the other direction (your outside edges will be smaller than the center pieces). Transfer to the lined sheet and spread the ‘fries’ out a little bit – this may require an additional pan. Bake 30 minutes, or until slightly golden.

Serve still warm, with additional pizza sauce for dipping.
