I love nachos. It is one of those appetizers that I order every time we go out to eat. When I think about two of my favorite foods, nachos, and pepperoni pizza, I don’t think it was a far leap to decide to combine the two. With all the deliciousness of nachos, combined with a three cheese pepperoni cheese pizza, one bit of these easy nachos and you will wonder why you never thought of it sooner.

Many times we will decide to make a take out night at home. That means we make some of our favorite take out meals at home. We get to each have something we love, it costs less and is usually a little more nutritious. Even better, for less than the cost of buying the food out, we can have more than we would get if we are ordering out, and we can have it from the comfort of my own living room. Ah, perfection.

What to Serve with this Simple Nachos Recipe

If you are like me and want to make these on a take out at home type of night, you will love to pair these simple nachos with:

Variations to Italian Nachos

If you are making these Italian nachos at home and want to change the flavors up a bit you can consider:

  • Add Sausage: I love sausage pizza almost as much as I love pepperoni pizza. You can add ground sausage to these Italian nachos as well.
  • Cheese: While the three different kinds of cheese send these nachos over the top, you can certainly make these Italian Nachos with different cheese, add other d=cheese, takes some out whatever makes these nachos sounds perfect to you.
  • Pepperoni: You can use turkey pepperoni, beef pepperoni, a spiced pepperoni or whatever other kinds of pepperoni you enjoy. That is what makes making these nachos at home because you can make them any way you like them.

Can Baked Nachos Be Made Ahead

If you are looking for simple time-saving ways to make these baked nachos ahead of time, you can assemble these nachos ahead. Follow all of the instructions until putting them in the oven. Personally, I do not like to heat these nachos until it is time to serve them. This helps the chips to stay crisp and the cheese to stay gooey. You can assemble these nachos about an hour to an hour and a half before heating. Another concern is letting the chips get stale before heating. For the best tasting baked nachos, only assemble to nachos about an hour before heating.

Making Pizza Nachos for a Party

If you are making these pizza nachos for a party or get together where you will be traveling with them, do not heat the platter until you are ready to serve. For the best tasting nachos, assemble the nachos at home, wrap them tightly and then heat them right before serving.

How to Store this Easy Nachos Recipe

I have heard mixed reviews about saving these easy nachos after they have cooled. The chips tend to be less crisp once they have cooled and it can be less than desirable when they are reheated. Other people have said they love the way the chips taste once they have cooled and have been reheated. If you would like to store these easy nachos to reheat for later, simply store it in an airtight container, or on the baking sheet, covered well in plastic.

How to Reheat These Pizzas Nachos

If you decided to store these pizza nachos, you will want to reheat them in the oven. This is the best way to get the best taste from your nachos. The cheese will melt again, the pepperoni will reheat and the chips will get slightly crispy again. I do not recommend reheating these pizza nachos in the microwave because it will make the cheese and pepperoni hard while making the chips soggy.
