Pizza Nachos

We love watching football at our house. We don’t always cheer for the same team, but that’s ok…as long as my team wins..ha! Caleb is already getting in on the action too. Every time he sees a football game on TV he yells ball. He also throws his hands up in the air, making the touchdown sign, and yells Ta-down. He doesn’t quite have the entire word mastered yet:)

Football and good food go hand in hand. I recently saw Dax’s recipe for Pizza Nachos on Tasty Kitchen and knew they would be perfect for game day. Plus, pizza and nachos are two of Josh’s favorite foods. I knew I would score bonus points for making Pizza Nachos. Pizza and nachos combined in one recipe? Genius!

The Pizza Nachos are really easy to make and are loaded with goodness. I piled chips into a cast iron skillet and topped them with a garlic cream sauce, pepperoni, onion, green pepper, and black olives. Of course, I finished them off with lots and lots of cheese! I popped them in the oven until the cheese was melted and pulled them out for a killer halftime snack! Josh LOVED the nachos. He was in heaven.

I used Josh’s favorite pizza toppings, but if you aren’t a pepperoni or olive fan, use your favorite pizza toppings. I am going to make a veggie version next time with artichokes, mushrooms, and roasted red peppers. Mmmmm! And if you are having friends over to watch the big game, put a bunch of toppings out and let them make their own pizza nachos. A pizza nacho bar sounds fun to me!

Enjoy Pizza Nachos while you watch football this weekend. They are the ultimate game day snack! For the recipe and step-by-step photos, visit Tasty Kitchen.

  1. Yum! That looks delicious. I’m going to make this for my husband this weekend instead of our traditional pizza night. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Pizza Nachos are on my Foodie Bucket List! I know my Husband would love them!! Your’s look fantastic!!! Yummy! Have a great weekend!

  3. Loved this idea for a quick weekend snack! Tried to print it out but as usual—Can somebody please tell me if it is just me or does everyone else have a problem with the print feature on the “TastyKitchen” website?

  4. So. much. fun. I have to make these for game day this weekend – my husband will love me forever. =)

  5. Ow! I might make some of these this weekend. We’re having friends over for the Eagles game. I can see little Caleb and Kay watching football together and having a blast ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I’m all over this. Saves me a ton of time when I want pizza and don’t want to make dough. I think my husband will love this too!

  7. A pizza nacho bar DOES sound awesome! As does this plate of cheesy nacho heaven. I’d hold the pepperoni but leave the rest!

  8. I made thes tonite and both my husband and I loved them. Pretty easy and very tasty with the sauce. I used sausage chunks instead of peperoni and half/half with almond milk. It had a lot of flavor without extra dairy and calories. I am getting off dairy and the almond milk subsituted just fine. Oh I also added red pepper and diced jalapeno.
    I will make this many times with different proteins.

  9. These definitely do look heavenly!!! A garlic cream sauce is quite different for a nacho but sounds absolutely delicious with all of the other pizza type ingredients! YUM!

  10. Maria, this is awesome, I am so sure my husband will looooove this! I am preparing this today, I don’t have pepperoni, so I’ll make a Chicken fajita Pizza Nachos ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Love this idea of turning pizza into nachos! Two of my favorite foods! We are huge football fans in our house too and this would be perfect for gameday!

  15. Those sound amazing, and while nobody in our house watches football.. it’d still make for an awesome Friday night snack for a movie! I’m curious though.. how do you make the garlic cream sauce?
