Chili Cheese Fries Pizza

Carbs on carbs, this pizza is topped with chili cheese fries and is EVERYTHING!

Sometimes I get a little weary that my husband and kids might look at me like I'm crazy when I pick a recipe for the meal plan that's a little out there. This is definitely a recipe that I would say is out there but in the best way. Who would think to make pizza topped with chili cheese fries? Chili cheese fries are already so dang good! I wasn't sure I was going to be a fan of fries on a pizza, but I was so wrong. Fries on pizza is a game changer. I didn't want to mess with making chili, so I used Skyline chili in the can (beanless) and it was the best decision because there was no choosing between Skyline, fries, or pizza - you get them all!

What you need:
  • 1 recipe pizza crust dough [my favorite - I used half]
  • 1 1/2 cups chili [we used Skyline]
  • 20 oz. cooked French fries
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  1. Roll out pizza dough to desired size. Move to a pizza pan or stone. I prefer mine sitting in a bed of lightly sprinkled cornmeal.
  2. Spread chili on the crust and then layer with French fries and cheese.
  3. Bake according to crust directions or until crust is golden brown and cooked through. For me, that's usually at 450* for 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Serve topped with green onions.

I love appetizer foods made into main dish recipes in a fun fusion way and this Jalapeno Popper Buffalo Chicken Pizza from The Spiffy Cookie looks so great! Another kind of pizza I like is one with bolder flavors like this Spicy Chicken and Jalapeno Pizza.
