Last night, I was strolling through Pinterest… that one place… where I go and don’t get seen for awhile. How many of you have been sucked in? I am trying to come up with a way to make a meal plan for my family, my main goal is to get us completely free of red dye and all other processed foods. Anyway, I came accros this little gem from Shutterbean. I tell you pure genius. I read her blog title, and I was hooked. Pizza Waffles?!?!?! I knew I had to try them, my children LOVE to dip anything! So tonight here it goes I am going to try out these Pizza Waffles. 


Mix Dry Items First


I didn’t add enough waffle mix, but it still came out nice and crispy!



I followed the recipe except, I personally do not like pepperoni. I switched it out for ground chicken sausage and I switched the 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese for a 1/2 cup Pepper Jack Cheese for some spice.

Makes 6-7 waffles

2 cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella

1/2 cup grated pepper jack cheese

1/2 cup finely ground chicken sausage

2 large eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Marinara for Dipping, I used some homemade that we had from leftover Spaghetti

In a medium bowl mix all of your dry ingredients, whisk until well blended. Add cheese, meat, and other “toppings” of your choice. Possibilities are endless. Coat these as it will allow them to not stick to your waffle iron. Add your wet ingredients and fold together, be careful to not over mix. 

Oil waffle maker and add about a 1/2 cup of mix.

Dip in Marinara and enjoy! 


I can tell you that these were a HUGE hit in my home! What a easy dinner!


I also made extra to stick in the freezer for a night where I fail to plan. Which I am getting better at, but more on that later! I am almost ready to post my work done on our new Meal Planner project! 

For Now, Over and Out

Have Hope.
