Your waffle maker is ready to make so much more than just waffles. How about we try Pizza Waffles?
It took me nearly forty-five years to buy a waffle maker, but never let it be said that I bought it to make waffles.
At some point, I’m sure I will be all traditional with it and make a batch or three of waffles, mostly for Madeline because I don’t eat them and Nick rarely does.
But in the meantime?
How about we continue some out-of-the-box thinking and make Pizza Waffles instead?
This inspiration came on a recent Friday night when I found myself with a house full of unexpected kid visitors.
Who were hungry.
Normally my go-to in situations like that would be a big platter of spaghetti, because it’s an easy crowd-pleaser, and I always have the ingredients on hand. But I had a little bit of extra time, so I decided to get a little creative instead.
And Pizza Waffles were born.
Because next to spaghetti, pizza is equally popular amongst the kid-set.
No official recipe, but that just means this “guideline” is ultra-forgiving and dummy-proof.
Which is pretty much my favorite kind of recipe.
In less than five minutes, I had seven kids served and coming back for seconds.
The waffle maker makes them deliciously crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Clean up is a breeze, you use mostly ingredients that you have on hand, and you can customize these tasty little bites to cater to your crew’s varying taste buds.
What more could you want?

These Bacon, Egg, and Spinach Waffles are another delicious alternative.

1 package Pillsbury Grands biscuits
shredded cheese (I used a mix of mozzarella and Cheddar from Cabot)
your favorite add-ins, i.e., pepperoni, ham, black olives, mushrooms…
- Spray your waffle maker with a non-stick spray.
- Open the can of Grands biscuits and separate each biscuit in half. Using a rolling pin or your hands, spread them out so they cover the waffle maker in one layer.
- Top with shredded cheese and your flavor add-ins (I used pepperoni and ham).
- Top with a second layer of rolled out Grands biscuits and close the waffle maker. Cook according to your product’s directions (mine were done in one-and-a-half cycles).
- Remove and repeat with remaining ingredients.
- Heat the tomato sauce for dipping.
