Have you heard about the newest thing in waffles, the chaffle? These cheesy waffles are super easy to make and lend themselves as the perfect base for a pizza! I’ve been playing around in the kitchen and would like to bring to you my Deep Dish Chaffle Pizza.
Most chaffles are made using the Dash Mini Waffle Iron (affiliate link). These make great, mini chaffles. However, I wanted to make a deep dish pizza so I used my trusty Presto Flip Side Belgian Waffle Iron (affiliate link)!
I like using this Belgian waffle iron for 2 reasons. 1, it makes an incredible deep dish crust and 2, the waffle comes out divided into 4 perfect triangles so you can break it apart for pizza slices!
Chaffles are incredibly easy to make and only require a few ingredients. For Trim Healthy Mama’s, this means no special ingredients! Unless you count almond flour as a special ingredient, but since I can find it at Walmart and/or Amazon (affiliate link), I don’t consider it so.
The recipe card is below but it’s basically, eggs, almond flour (finely ground – not meal), cheddar cheese, garlic powder and Italian Seasoning. That’s it. And that’s for this particular Chaffle. You can make them savory, sweet and everything in between! I’ll have more Chaffle recipes and ideas in the coming weeks so be sure and subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss out!
To make this Deep Dish Chaffle Pizza, you start by making the crust, which is the actual Chaffle. And to do that, you’ll simply preheat your waffle iron, mix all your ingredients and make the waffle Chaffle. Then, you’ll top it with all your favorite pizza toppings and place it in a pre-heated 350 oven, on a parchment paper (NOT wax paper) lined baking sheet or a pizza stone for 5 – 10 minutes, depending on how quickly yours melts cheese. Alternatively, you can pop it under the broiler for a minute but keep an eye on it or it will burn.
I love to use sugar free pizza sauce, diced ham, green olives, pepperoni and shredded mozzarella cheese. YUM!
Ok, here’s your Deep Dish Chaffle Pizza Crust Recipe.
