Pizza Waffles

What do you want, pizza or waffles? What kind of a question is that? I want both!!!

Here’s something fun you can try next time you’re doing pizza at home: Pizza Waffles! I think this could be a cool idea for a party too. All you need is a waffle iron, your favourite pizza dough (homemade or store-bought) and toppings for your pizza!

PIZZA DOUGH

  • 300 gr (10.7 oz) flour
  • 150-170 ml warm water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 package dry yeast

In a mixer with the hook attachment mix the flour, yeast, oil and salt. Slowly add in the water (use as little as much as you need) until your dough forms a ball that is not sticky or dry. Beat the dough in the mixer for about 5 minutes (you can do it by hand to for about 15 m). Leave the ball of dough to rise in a warm place covered with a cloth until it doubles in size. If you’re doing a normal pizza at this point stretch or roll out the dough and put in a tray or pizza wheel leaving it to rise once again for about 45 m. Put your pizza toppings and bake in a hot pre heated oven (200ºC/ 400ºF).

For the pizza waffles: After the dough’s first rise, take small portions and make balls with the dough (don’t worry to make them perfect). Leave them to rise once more in a floured tray until they double their volume again. They’re ready for your waffle iron. Make sure it’s hot! Cook the balls of pizza dough until they start to golden, don’t get them too cooked because they’re still gonna go in the oven.

Put your cooked pizza waffles in a tray, spoon a little bit of tomato sauce and the toppings of your choice (I’ve used tomato sauce, roasted chicken, mushrooms, sliced black olives, oregano and shredded mozzarella cheese). Put it on you oven’s grill (hot) just until the cheese is melted.

Guess how took a bite? Guess that's a hard guess…

Brilliant, Rita! There is actually a blog where a guy 'waffelizes' everything with his waffle maker. I can't recall the url at this moment, but when I do, I'll post back. BTW, the 'fried eggs' below are also unique, beautiful and yummy looking!
