smoked tater tot pizza with jalapenos and cheese


  • Tater Tots (3/4 of the bag, defrosted)
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup marble or mozzarella cheese
  • Your choice of favorite pizza toppings

Special Tools

  • Potato Masher
  • Pizza Cutter


  1. First, preheat your Pit Boss Navigator to 400°F
  1. Then, pack your defrosted tater tots into a cast iron skillet, as tight as possible.
  1. Next, using a fork or potato smasher, smash the tater tots so they all smush together.
  1. Place your cast iron skillet into your preheated smoker and cook for approximately 30 minutes to crisp up your tater crust.
  1. Once your crust is crispy, remove the skillet from the grill and add pizza sauce, cheese, and your favorite pizza toppings (we did onions and jalapeños).
  1. Place the skillet back onto your Pit Boss until your cheese melts.
  1. Finally, remove the skillet from the grill, and carefully remove the pizza from the skillet.
  1. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
