I made this up with two of my daughter's favorite foods in mind: french fries and pizza. She took one bite and said "These are good! They taste like pizza!" Exactly what I had in mind.

These are so GOOD !! It really tasted like pizza. Naturally, my kids were in heaven ! The only adjustment I made was I decreased the salt to 1/2 teaspoon. VERY GOOD comfort food, or a snack for the game. Made for Holiday Tag. EXCELLENT RECIPE !

This is a great oven fry recipe. I probably had more potatoes for the spices, but they were still flavorful and tasty. I also decreased the oil a bit. I was leary adding soo much spice to these but in the end it turned out to be the right amount. I am not sure if these taste exactly like pizza but they are darn good anyway!!! Thanks!
