Rosemary and French Fries Pizza

What do you get when you add french fries to a pizza? You get a brilliant pizza, that’s what! Here’s my Rosemary and French Fries Pizza.

What do you get when you combine french fries and a pizza? You get one helluva pizza!

I don’t know why, but one day I decided that adding french fries to a pizza would be a good idea. I mean, can you ever have too many carbs? Not on weekends!

This recipe is incredibly simple. You can either buy a pre-made pizza base or make your own. I haven’t yet mastered a pizza recipe of my own, so I’m sharing a few of my favourites below.

The fries are simple, just potato matchsticks mixed with a little oil, salt, pepper and herbs. Once cooked, they’re tossed in parmesan and then added onto the prepared pizza. Ta-ha! A delicious pizza and fun to serve when you have friends over.

Tell me dear reader, what’s the strangest topping you’ve had on a pizza?
