Combine all of your favorite snacks with this loaded tater tot pizza!

Traditionally only topped with tomato sauce and cheese, "modern" pizza as we know it first sprung from humble Italian roots, and has since expanded to all corners of the Earth.

In the U.S., pizza is ever the party favorite, and is perfect for game days, kids' birthdays, picnics, and family dinners.

And while pizza can be enjoyed with simple, classic toppings like pepperoni or veggies, there are many other recipes that revamp its form entirely — like these scrumptious meatball pizza cups!

In our newest mash-up, we've decided to combine ranch dressing, savory dough, and one very special ingredient to kick pizza parties up a notch.
