pizza totchos (tater tots + nachos!)

Some nights, especially when the outside temp is 9 degrees, you just want to cozy up with some comfort food.

If you’ve never had totchos, you are in for a real treat.

It seems that less people are taking the time to actually read blogs these days, so for those who clicked over and want *just* the recipe and you’d like it right now…enJOY!

PIZZA TOTCHOS

½ bag tater tots (we used Ore Ida mini tots, always be sure they are labeled GF)

¾ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

¼ cup asiago cheese, shaved

½ cup pepperoni slices (Boar’s Head is labeled GF and so tasty, just slice it up!)

¼ cup green olives, chopped

⅛ cup onion, diced

½ cup cherry tomatoes, sliced

canned jalapeño pepper slices

1 teaspoon Penzeys pizza seasoning 

½ cup pizza sauce for dipping, in oven safe ramekin

Bake tater tots according to the package directions; this may differ slightly depending on brand and style of tots, any will do!  When they are about 80% cooked, remove the pan from the oven, sprinkle with pizza seasoning, then top with cheeses and all other toppings. Place ramekin dish of pizza sauce on pan and return to oven for remaining cook time or until cheese is melted and tots get crispy and pizza sauce is heated.

Plate up, dip into sauce, enJOY!

Sarah’s Notes: ANY pizza toppings you would use on a regular pizza would work to top these totchos, we just used up what we had around the house. (those are the best meals in my opinion!) Same goes for the cheeses, we had some extra asiago to use up, but you could also use shaved parmesan, or just extra mozzarella.

Let me know if you try them out and what toppings YOU use!
