Products to Use
Grease bottom and sides of a large, flat bottomed skillet. (10-12")
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Toss thawed tater tots in a large bowl with salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning, gently toss to season evenly.
Carefully line the tots along the bottom of the skillet, in a single layer, without any space between them. Then take remaining and line the perimeter of the skillet, so it looks like a “crust”.
Bake the crust, top rack for 15 minutes.
Remove to add the toppings and increase the temperature on the oven to 450 degrees F.
Top the tater tot crust with pepperoni, sauce, cheese and more pepperoni on top. Add some red chili flakes if desired. You can have fun with it and add whatever your favorite pizza toppings are.
Place back in the oven on the top rack and cook an addition 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and crust is crisp.
Remove and top with fresh chopped basil and parmesan cheese.
Cut into pie shaped slices and serve.
