Your favorite pepperoni pizza is now pizza nachos! Tangy sauce drizzled on crispy dough crust chips, topped with pepperoni and melted cheese. Share with your friends. That is if you want to share…
When Brooks is away on a Tuesday, it is pizza night in the Stewart household. Braxton and Connor used to be strictly cheese only.
While away, Braxton tried pepperoni for the first time and decided that it was his new topping of choice.
As the older brother does, so does the younger brother follow. Connor now eats pepperoni only.
They think that cheese is terrible, even though that is what their pepperoni pizza only without the pepperoni!
Kids… They drive me crazy some days and then they flash their cute dimples I am mush.

PIZZA NACHOS INGREDIENTS

I was thinking of them when I started thinking about nacho recipes that I wanted to share. Pepperoni pizza in particular but in an easier method to share.
What do you do if you don’t want a whole slice? Don’t get dressed and drive to a pizza place to order one slice, if they even sell by the slice, and then have to drive home where your pizza slice is now cold.
Don’t worry about all that nonsense just grab a few pieces of these nachos!
HOW TO MAKE PIZZA NACHOS
FIRST: Preheat oven to 350F. Roll out pizza dough until thin. Brush with olive oil and salt.
SECOND: Bake as directed or until cooked. Remove from oven and slice into chip-sized wedges. Let cool for 5 minutes.
THIRD: Lay chips out on baking sheet (use the same one so you don’t have more dishes). Drizzle or spread the sauce over the chips.Place pepperoni on the sauce and chips.
FOURTH: Cover with cheese, crushed red pepper, and Italian Seasoning Mix. Bake at 350F for 5 minutes or until the cheese is nice and melty. Serve to your hungry guests!

For some, deep dish is the way to go, but I am a thin crust girl. The chips for my pizza nachos are made from prepared pizza dough rolled out to a medium or thin thickness.
If you want to go thinner you can, but the melty cheese might cause them to break a bit. I just sliced them on the diagonal to make traditional “chip” shapes and off I went.
Having these toppings on pizza crust chips is really like eating a tiny personalized pizza but on a sheet pan for sharing with friends. If you can stand to share.
