Pepperoni Pizza Fries loaded with homemade pizza sauce, stretchy mozzarella and tasty cheddar. Serve them for dinner, as a game day or party food. You won't believe how fast they disappear!
You can use shop-bought chips or homemade chips, (you can even use shop-bought pizza sauce if you like!) all cooked together on one tray for minimal washing up!
One way to bribe your kids to do the washing up?
Offer them pizza fries.
I am not above using bribery to get the chores down every now and then.
I made these as part of a batch of recipes recently, and we had family round for what we call blogger buffet. It basically consists of everything that I've tested that day, and more often than not, those dishes do not go together.
Anyway, the last time I did it, these pizza fries were demolished before I could even get the other dishes on the table. Five minutes flat, gone.

🔪 How to make Pizza Fries
Full recipe with detailed steps in the recipe card at the end of this post.
- Mix together the passata, tomato puree, oregano, thyme, garlic powder and onion powder, then drizzle the mixture over the cooked fries.
- Top with grated cheddar and mozzarella, then arrange sliced peppers on top.
- Sprinkle with more cheese and good pinch of oregano, then arrange sliced pepperoni over the top. and place back into the oven for about 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted and the pepperoni is cooked.
👩🍳PRO TIP Grated mozzarella gives that great stretch when you're pulling out those fries, but it's a little bland by itself, so I like to mix it up with some strong cheddar. This will give you the stretch AND the flavour.
Sprinkle with a little parsley before serving.

- When the chips are cooked, we want to pile them up (rather than have them in one single layer), so either pile them in the centre of the tray or pile them up on a smaller tray. I like to use a smaller tray, and then serve the pizza fries directly from it.
