Introduction: Mozz-Stuffed Pizza Waffles!
It's a simple story. I love pizza and I love waffles, so I developed my own recipe to make a pizza waffle! The result was a crispy-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside savory waffle stuffed with gooey mozzarella cheese. It goes great dipped in some marinara sauce :)
Step 1: Ingredients
Here is what you'll need to whip up your own pizza waffles:
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 4 tbsp melted unsalted butter
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella
- pepper to taste
Marinara sauce for dipping (optional)
Mini pepperoni (optional)
I used the back of a piping tip and some salami to create mine
This recipe makes about 4-5 waffles depending on the size of your waffle iron.
Step 2: Sift Dry Ingredients
Sift your flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar into a large bowl and whisk to combine.
Step 3: Mix Wet Ingredients
Add your milk and eggs to a separate medium bowl and whisk until well incorporated.
Step 4: Combine Wet to Dry
Slowly add your wet mix to your dry ingredients and whisk in circular motions gently (there is such thing as over mixing!)
Once you have a batter-like consistency, slowly pour in your melted butter and whisk it in.
You should have a smooth, pourable batter.
Step 5: Add the Rest of the Ingredients
Add your Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, and your parmesan cheese. These can all be to your taste.
Step 6: Make Your Waffles!
First, follow the instructions for your waffle maker and bring your iron up to heat. Then, spray liberally with non-stick spray.
Here is the technique for making my mozz-stuffed pizza waffles:
- pour a thin layer of batter, enough to cover the bottom of the iron tray.
- take a handful of mozzarella and place it in the middle of the batter.
- pour another layer of batter over the mozzarella, enough to seal it in.
- if you choose, place your pepperoni pieces over the batter
- close the iron and cook your waffles for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown.
Step 7: Let Cool
Waffles will get soggy if you stack them like pancakes straight from the iron. So let them cool a bit on a wire rack to retain their crispiness.
Bust out your marinara sauce for dipping.
Step 8: Enjoy!
These pizza waffles are super yummy as an afternoon snack and really hit that pizza craving.
I hope you like them as much as I do!
