Loaded Mexican Fries Pizza


  • 1 Cappello’s Naked Pizza Crust 

  • For Mexican spiced fries:

  • 1 medium russet potato 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt 

  • ¼ teaspoon cumin 

  • ⅛ teaspoon chili powder 

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder 

  • ⅛ teaspoon paprika 

  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper 

  • For ground beef:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 

  • 5 ounces ground beef 

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt 

  • ½ teaspoon chili powder 

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper 

  • For assembly:

  • ½ avocado, diced 

  • ¼ cup pico de gallo 

  • 1 radish, sliced thin

  • ¼ cup Cotija cheese, crumbled 

  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped 


  • Preheat oven to 425 F. Cut potato into fries that are about ½-inch thick. 

  • In a medium mixing bowl, add fries, olive oil, and spices. Toss to coat and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 

  • Bake for 20 minutes, flip the fries, then bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the fries are golden and crispy. 

  • While fries are baking, cook the beef. In a 12-inch skillet placed on a stove set to medium heat, warm the oil. Add the beef, salt, chili powder, and black pepper. 

  • Cook until meat is no longer pink, breaking it up into pieces as it cooks, 5-7 minutes. 

  • Place pizza directly on the preheated baking sheet. Cook for 11-15 minutes, or until the crust begins to brown. Remove from oven. 

  • Top pizza with fries, ground beef, avocado, pico de gallo, radishes, cotija, and cilantro. Serve immediately.
