Tater Tot Taco Pizza Recipe FAQs
1. Can this be made in a 9×13″ pan instead? Yes, you can make it in a 9×13″ pan but keep in mind that you will probably need more ingredients to cover the pan.
2. Would this work on a cookie sheet? If you want to go the cookie sheet route, I would suggest using one with sides since this recipe is a kind of greasy and you don’t want the grease to run off of the pan into your oven.
3. Can I use regular tater tots instead of the crownies? Yes, it will just be a bit more bumpy.
4. Can I use hashbrowns instead of tater tots? If you mean hashbrown patties or rectangles, those would work. As far as shredded hashbrowns go, they would probably work for the bottom but wouldn’t be very crispy.
5. Do I have to use a cast iron pan? No, I used mine to help get the tater tots crispy but you can use another casserole dish of your choice.
