I’ve had debates with my best friend over the merits of pancakes vs. waffles for YEARS. After trying this pizza waffle, I officially concede. This was my first foray into the world of savory waffles and I. AM. HOOKED. Though I’ll always be #teampancake in my heart, you can definitely DO MORE with a waffle maker.
The sweet Jessica Cooke send me the original recipe from My Life Cookbook, and try as I might, I can’t really improve on it much.
I tried adding more cauli: Fail
Swapping egg for egg white: Fail
Cutting down the amount of cheese: Fail
It’s nearly perfect the way it’s written. I can contribute: macros, simplified seasonings, saving you from ricing your own cauli, and some easy dipping sauce if you don’t want to go with store-bought. But that’s about all the macro-hacking I can do.
For that reason, you’re going to want to pair this with more protein and potentially some veggies.
It took a while to get it right, but eventually, I was able to make some magic happen and the results were gorgeous! I think you’re going to love this one!
As for which waffle iron I use (which is a question I get more often than I’d ever anticipated), I have an Oster. It’s on the inexpensive side and has served us well for years. If you’re in the market, check it out:
Once you have your fancy-pants waffle iron, check out these recipes:
- 1 egg
- 1/4 C riced cauliflower (I use frozen)
- 8 slices of turkey pepperoni, torn or cut into small bits
- 1/2 tsp of Italian seasoning
- 1/2 C mozzarella, shredded
- 1/2 C cheddar, shredded
- 2 tbsp parmesan, grated
For Sauce (store-bought pizza sauce is fine, but if you want to make your own, use ours)
- 1 6oz can tomato paste
- 1 8 oz can tomato sauce
- 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
- Spray waffle iron with non-stick spray. I love coconut oil spray by Cookwell.
- Mix together all ingredients. Don't stop until the egg has coated everything.
- When waffle iron is hot, pour mixture into iron.
- Cook according to your waffle iron directions. Mine wasn't finished when the cycle ended and the light turned on, so I pushed down on the top of the iron and let it run for another 30 seconds or so. Then it was perfect. Your results may vary.
- Remove from waffle iron carefully and serve with sauce, if you'd like.
For the Sauce
- Combine everything.
- Heat if desired.
