The other night I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out what to have for dinner when I stumbled upon the most glorious recipe I had ever seen in my life: pizza nachos. All I needed was tortilla chips, spaghetti sauce, cheese, and mini pepperoni's. Lucky enough for me I had a few jars of spaghetti sauce (I'm a pasta fanatic) and tortilla shells from making tacos the night before. The recipe took maybe 20-30 minutes to make and was 100% worth it. It tasted like I was eating a real pizza in chip form.

    Lay them on parchment paper and bake for 8-10 minutes, then cool for about 10 minutes or until they've firmed up.

  • Step 4

    While the chips are baking, pour your spaghetti sauce into a bowl and heat it up for about 30 seconds in the microwave. Pour it back into the bowl you used for the chips and add the garlic powder, Italian seasoning, dried basil, salt, and parsley. Mix together and set aside. (I'm a big believer of seasoning to taste so if some of the seasoning doesn't sound good to you or you need to add more/less, all the power to you. And if you're fine with the sauce how it tastes out of the jar, then you don't need to add a thing.)

    After the chips are out of the oven and cooled, add them to a oven-safe dish (I used a cast iron skillet).

  • Step 6

    Pour the sauce over the chips and then sprinkle on the mozzarella and pepperoni ('m also obsessed with cheese so I added some more Parmesan and my new favorite obsession: Havarti. If you're looking for Insta worthy cheesy-ness, I highly recommend this cheese)

    Bake dish at 350 degree Fahrenheit for 8 minutes and enjoy!
