  • 48 Tater Tots frozen
  • 16 tablespoons Mozzarella cheese finely shredded
  • 48 Mini pepperonis
  • 3 tablespoons Pizza sauce


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Grease a mini muffin pan and place three tater tots in each cup. Bake for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes remove the muffin pan from the oven and use a tamper to press the tater tots down into each cup. This will create a tater tot cup.
  • Fill each tater tot cup with a heaping 1/4 teaspoon of pizza sauce, 1 tablespoon mozzarella cheese, and 3 mini pepperonis.
  • Place the tater tots back in the oven and cook for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pizza tots from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the muffin pan.
  • Enjoy!
