Pizza made in the waffle iron! It's so fun to make and perfect for a busy weeknight or quick snack. I use pre-made pizza dough but your favorite homemade recipe will work just fine. Add more cheese and pepperoni if you like, it's a very versatile recipe (plus the crispy, cheesy bits are my favorite). Serve with more pizza sauce for dipping. I hope you enjoy it!

  • Roll pizza dough to 1/2-inch thickness on a flat work surface. Cut dough into 16 rounds using a 2-inch cutter. Press rounds out with your fingers until each measures about 3 inches across.

  • Spoon 1 teaspoon pizza sauce into the center of 8 rounds. Top each with 2 teaspoons mozzarella cheese and 1 slice of pepperoni. Cover with remaining 8 rounds, pressing around edges to seal.

  • Cook the sealed rounds, in batches, on the preheated waffle iron until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Top each one with another pepperoni slice and a little more mozzarella cheese. Close waffle iron and continue cooking until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes more.

The family loved these! I opted not to add the extra pepperoni and cheese to the top b/c I didn't want it to be too messy for the kids to eat. The great thing about these is that you can add any of your favorite pizza toppings, sort of like homemade hot pockets...great idea~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

My family loves these! We just buy the canned pizza dough, and I will let the kids vary in fillings too. We have done it with ham and cheese, bbq chicken... it is all great! For the traditional pepperoni version, I also serve it with marinara to dip. Read More
