Recipe: Waffle Pizza

Today I saw a great idea for dinner: Waffle Pizza


It's a pizza, made in your waffle maker!
How fantastic is that?


I'm always looking for different ways to use the tools and appliances that I already have on hand, so this was perfect.

Let me give you a sneak peak at what I'm talking about:

That's right Friends, that is a Pizza, not a waffle.
Pizza fillings inside of a double layer of pizza dough -super yum.

Let's get started.

First, I made some home made bread / pizza dough in my bread machine.
I found one recipe that works great in my bread machine posted on Frugal Upstate's blog. Click HERE for her recipe (Also posted below)

I put the ingredients in my machine in the order they are listed below (it correlates with my bread machine's instructions - be sure to check yours), set it to the dough setting and went back to playing with my kids.

Pizza Hut Style Pizza Dough - For Bread Machine
Pizza Hut Style Pizza Dough*

1 1/3 cups water
2 tsp sugar
1 1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp cornmeal
3 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp yeast

Add ingredients to bread machine, according to manufacturer’s settings, and run dough setting. After the machine beeps, roll out the dough.

Now, lets make some WAFFLES.  
Errr... I mean Pizza. 
Okay, Waffle Pizza's!

My inpsiration for tonight's dinner can be found HERE.
Emily shared her fantastic idea for Waffle Pizza on the SITS website.
*Be sure to check out her blog post, she gives great ideas for variations on this recipe for other meals and desert combinations! *

1. While the dough is in the final stages, go ahead and heat up your Waffle Maker.
Here is my Dough, cut into 3 pieces for three "waffles"

2.  Roll out your dough as thin as possible.
3.  Get your toppings ready (Canadian bacon, turkey pepperoni, mushrooms and pineapple (not shown).

4. Spray the waffle maker with Pam.
5. Place the bottom layer of your "sandwich" on the waffle maker and stack with toppings.
6. Then fold over to make a sandwich and lock it down
7.  Trim around the edges with a knife while it's baking up.  I cooked ours for anywhere between 3-5 minutes depending on how many toppings we used.


The Feedback:  10 out of 10
A direct quote from KidMo, 
" The flavor and seasoning is better than I thought"
(WHO is this kid? He cracks me up)

Give Waffle Pizza a try at your house!  
I'd love to hear how your family likes this meal.

SO WONDERFUL that it turned out so good... but I'll tell ya... I'd have to add more cheese than the few little strands you show in your picture. (Just a personal preference!) LOL

Amy @MoMomma

Thanks for stopping by Toqua... I loaded the cheese on the bottom (tons of it!) hard to see in the photo, but I couldn't agree more! Extra Cheese!
