Part grilled cheese, part panini, part pizza. Meet your kid’s new favorite lunch: The Pizza Waffle.

You can use store bought pizza dough or make your own using the recipe below. Simply cut the dough into 3 inch circles, sandwich some cheese in between, and bake inside a waffle iron until golden brown. Cut into strips and serve along size pizza sauce for dipping.

The first time we made these, we put the sauce inside the waffle, which tasted good, but made a crazy mess on the side of the waffle iron that had to be scraped off with a butter knife.

That’s why we dip. You’re welcome.

This recipes makes about 12 pizza waffles. You can store the extras in the fridge and reheat them in the microwave or toaster oven for a quick and easy lunch.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup               warm water (110 degrees)
  • 2.25 tsp           active dry yeast (one packet)
  • 1 tsp                sugar
  • 3 cups              flour
  • 2 tsp                garlic powder
  • 2 tsp                onion powder
  • 2 tsp                salt
  • 2 tbsp              olive oil
  • 2 cups              pizza sauce
  • 1 cup               shredded mozzarella cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

For the Dough
  1. In a large bowl, use a standing mixer or spatula to combine the warm water, dry yeast, and sugar. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. Mix in the oil.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring just until the dough is no longer sticky. (You may have a bit of the dry ingredients left over.)
  5. With your hands, knead the dough inside the bowl. Add flour as needed until the dough feels smooth and no longer sticky.
  6. Place the dough on a floured surface. Cut in half or quarters and roll out the dough to 1/4” thick.
  7. Use a cookie cutter to cut the dough into 3” circles.
For the Pizza Waffles
  1. Preheat the waffle maker.
  2. Place one circle of dough onto the heated waffle iron, top with 1 tbsp of shredded cheese, and place another dough circle on top.
  3. Close the lid of the waffle iron and press firmly for 15 seconds, cooking until golden brown.
  4. Slice the waffle into strips and serve with pizza sauce for dipping!

NOTES

Cooked pizza waffles can be stored in the fridge and reheated in the microwave or toaster oven for a quick and easy meal!
