CHEESE.

PIZZA.

FRIES.

Three of the most loved foods.  Together at the same time.

Absolutely amazing.

My low-FODMAP Cheesy Pizza Fries recipe will guarantee you are the best host for any party, football game, or family event.

It is also terrific as an after-school energy boost, your kids will really enjoy 🙂

Baking the potatoes ensures lower fat in these fries, and this delicious snack is packed with fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals.

These low-FODMAP Pizza Fries are easily modifiable for added ground beef, veggies and any other topping you love.  Dip them in my low-FODMAP Pizza Sauce for a tangy and delicious flavor.

Everyone will appreciate this low-FODMAP recipe is both gluten-free AND IBS-friendly.

FODMAP fact: Following a low-FODMAP diet does not mean you can’t consume any dairy.  Many higher fat dairy products are low enough in lactose (since lactose is a carbohydrate) to allow safe consumption.  This includes butter and cheeses.  Most cheeses are low-FODMAP in servings of about 40 g or 1/3 cup.

Amazing Low-FODMAP Cheesy Pizza Fries; Gluten-free, Vegetarian

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Serves 4

Prep Time 15 min

Cook Time 25-30 min

Total Time 45-50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 & 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, scrubbed (this is about 2 large potatoes)
    • Can also substitute frozen French fries, if you tolerate the small amount of gluten these often contain
  • 1 tablespoon garlic infused olive oil (for tips on shopping for these oils, see my low-FODMAP recipe swap blog)
  • 1 tbsp Happy Spices low-FODMAP Italian Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives or green scallion tips
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Colby jack cheese
  • 3/4 cup low-FODMAP Pizza sauce, prepared; divided
  • Finely chopped pizza toppings (pick your favorites.  I used red pepper, tomato, olives and basil):
    • 1/4 cup chopped red pepper
    • Small amount banana or jalapeño peppers
    • 1 small ripe tomato
    • 1/4 cup black or green olives, chopped
    • Cooked and crumbled bacon, deli turkey or cooked ground beef (for non vegetarian)
    • Fresh pineapple chunks
    • 2 teaspoons fresh basil, chopped

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 475ºF and place rack in center of oven
  • Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper, aluminum foil (spray foil with baking spray if using this option) or silicone liners
  • Cut each potato into wedges, shoestrings or thinner per your preference
    • If you cut thicker wedges then the bake time will need to be longer
    • Thick slices hold the sauce better, but I love a thinner French fry 🙂
  • In a medium bowl, toss potatoes with infused olive oil to thoroughly coat slices
  • Add seasoning, chives, salt, and black pepper, tossing again to distribute spices evenly
  • Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet, spreading them out and making sure they don’t touch or overlap to allow for even and faster baking
  • Bake potatoes for about 10-12 minutes, then stir and spread them out again
    • If you use packaged frozen fries, then skip steps 3-5.  Bake per package directions and sprinkle with seasoning after baking (you will likely not need the additional salt or oil)
  • Bake about 12 minutes more, you want them to be pretty crisp and to your preferred taste (I like mine very crispy, so it took a little longer)
  • Once baked, remove from oven and cluster the potatoes in the center of the sheet, or transfer to a smaller, oven safe platter
  • Drizzle with 1/2 cup sauce, cheeses and other desired toppings (you can also opt to add them after baking)
  • Return the low-FODMAP Pizza fries to the oven for about 5 more minutes, to allow the toppings to warm and the cheese to melt
  • Serve with remaining low-FODMAP pizza sauce for dipping
