Equipment

  • Baking Sheet or Dish
  • cheese grater
  • knife
  • Broiler on the Oven

Ingredients

  • 1 Family Size Bag of Tortilla Chips
  • 6 oz Pizza Sauce
  • 3/4 Cups Cheese Sauce This Recipe is Best
  • 8 oz Pepperonis
  • 8 oz Shredded Cheese your choice of flavors - cheddar, mozzarella work well

Instructions

  • Preheat the broiler on your oven. Spray a 9x13 casserole dish or use a baking sheet.
  • Layer Chips, pizza sauce, cheese sauce, pepperonis and shredded cheese in the baking dish/sheet.
  • Make sure to layer so that some of the goodies get onto all of the chips.
  • Place under the broiler and keep a close eye on them so that they don’t burn. Heat for 1-2 minutes if using a baking sheet. If using a baking dish, you may want to switch to 350 degrees and bake for 10 minutes to allow all of the layers to become properly heated.

Notes

Use a crisp, light chip (the inexpensive Santitoes work well, or you choose!).
A pizza sauce straight out of the jar is fine. Feel free to make your own as well.
Add other toppings you like on pizza such as hamburger, sausage, vegetables, olives…. Get creative!
It’s important to use a saucy already melted cheese PLUS shredded cheese. The sauce cheese is a wonderful surprise and what tastes SO GOOOD!
The shredded cheese gives these a good bite plus helps hold the goodies onto the chips, so use it too! Use any flavorful, hearty cheese that you enjoy and that melts well under the broiler.
