For the final installment of our Waffle Iron Series (check out Hash Brown Waffles and Coconut Crusted French Toast Waffles), I’ve got a savory recipe that you can throw together for a quick meal or even a party appetizer. Pizza waffles are loaded with all your favorite pepperoni pizza flavors in waffle form. The cheese and pepperoni is baked right in, so these are easy to pick up and dunk in your favorite marinara sauce. Easy, peasy, cheesy.
Pepperoni Pizza Waffles
2 1/2 cups pancake mix
1 1/2 cups cold water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 cup sliced and diced pepperoni
3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Heat your waffle iron on medium-high. In a large mixing bowl, combine pancake mix, water, oil, garlic powder, oregano, basil and salt. Stir until combined, but still lumpy. Stir in pepperoni and cheeses. When iron is preheated, scoop a generous amount of batter onto each square and cook until golden brown. Cut into wedges and serve warm with marinara dipping sauce.
HINT: Keep waffles warm before serving in a 170 degree oven.
