Waffle Love!

Happy Valentines Day! Since today we are celebrating love, I thought I would put together two things I love–pizza and waffles! What???? There are so many fun things you can create with a waffle iron so I thought I would start with this one.  MMMMM…yum!

Pepperoni Pizza Waffles

Crust:

¾ cup warm water

1 ½ teaspoons yeast

1 teaspoon sugar

1 ¾ cup flour

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

Optional add ins:

2 teaspoons basil

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon oregano

½ teaspoon black pepper

or your favorite pizza crust

Pizza or pasta sauce

Pepperoni

Mozzarella Cheese

In a large bowl, sprinkle sugar and yeast. Add the warm water. Let sit for 5 minutes or so. Add the salt, olive oil, and flour and add ins if you want a seasoned crust. Mix until it makes a sticky dough. Dump dough onto a floured surface and knead, adding a little flour at a time, until no longer sticky. Put back in the bowl, cover with a cloth, and put in a warm place to rise. Let it rise for about 30 minutes.

When the dough is ready, divide into 6-8 ball depending on the size of your waffle iron. Stretch into discs just smaller than the waffle iron. Sprinkle a plate with a little bit of flour, place one dough disc on plate. Leaving about an inch around the edges clean, add a small amount of sauce, pepperoni, and cheese. I use sliced cheese since it is easier to stay where I want it to. Cover with another dough disc.

Heat waffle iron and generously spray with non stick spray when ready. Place pizza in waffle iron and cook until browned. Dip in remaining sauce if desired.
