Pizza Fries Recipe

Pizza Fries
Pizza fries are a quick and easy appetizer to prepare. This is more of an idea than a recipe and is perfect to serve for your Super Bowl party. Waffle fries are topped with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni and then served with pizza sauce. If you want you can put the sauce right on the fries before the cheese but I like my fries crispy so I used the sauce for dipping. No frying is required just bake the fries in the oven and then top with pizza ingredients. Enjoy.
