Tater Tot Pizza

I make this recipe often at my house, and we absolutely love it! It’s easy to make, and a lot of fun to eat.

I’ve used several different pans with this, and I don’t think it much matters what kind you use as long as the pan can be safely put into the oven.

Preheat the oven to 425.

Spray the inside of the pan with Pam, or whatever you have handy.

I use Tater Tot Crowns, because their shape makes them much easier to flatten then a standard Tater Tot.
Press the Crowns against the bottom and sides of the pan, until it’s completely covered.

Put the pan in the oven for 10 or 15 minutes. I usually use this time to brown the hamburger. We like a lot of hamburger on our pizzas, so I use 1 1/2 lbs. I don’t use taco seasoning, but if you’d like to do that then put about a cup of water in with your meat and stir in the seasoning. I do throw some chopped onion in there, because I like the way it flavors the meat. The fun thing about this dish is5 that you can pretty much do whatever you want.

Once the Tots have cooked for 10 or 15 minutes, take them out of the oven and use a spatula to press them until they are flat. 

Top with shredded cheese, whatever flavor and amount tickles your fancy. I’m a cheese person, so I usually throw quite a bit of mild Cheddar or Colby on top of my pizza.

Put the ground beef on top of the cheese, throw a dash or two of taco sauce on, if you’d like, and then sprinkle more cheese on top of the beef.

Put it back in the oven and bake for another 15 minutes or so at 425.

When it comes out of the oven, top it with shredded lettuce, chopped tomato pieces, and more shredded cheese. I also like to break up some tortilla chips and mix them in. 

I like this recipe because it’s so versatile. Basically, whatever you like on your pizza can be done here. The Tots are a tasty alternative to pizza crust, and it’s fun to play around with different toppings.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you give this recipe a try, and please let me know how it works for you. I should be back on Sunday with another behind the scenes look at the Drill series. In the meantime, I hope you have a great week.

      It sure is! Probably not as healthy as a thin crust, but it sure is good! Thanks so much for dropping in. 😀

    Sounds yummy, Rhani:) I’d have to switch sweet potatoes for regular and by pass the cheese, but I think I’ll give it a try, thanks.

    I like the idea of bread substitution as I do have to limit floured products. I also have to eliminate dairy products and so, I would fix this for other folks in my family. Thanks for sharing.

      Oh, I couldn’t live without cheese! Lol I’m glad that you can make it for others, though. Please let me know what they think. 😀

      Hey, thanks for stopping by! It’s good to see you, how have you been? Yes, it’s a great recipe. I’ve used different kinds of meats, although hamburger is my favorite, and all different kinds of toppings. It’s fast and easy, just the way I like my recipes to be. 😃
