Waffle Iron Pizzas

Preparing waffle iron pizza

This recipe takes two beloved classics to create a gooey and undeniably delectable concoction. Instead of making dough from scratch, canned biscuits lathered with oregano-garlic butter serve as the base. From there, pizza toppings like mozzarella and pepperoni enter the scene to create our waffle iron pizza. To avoid excessive mess and possibly a ruined waffle maker, sauce is served on the side for dipping.

Try it with a twist! While you may immediately think savory when it comes to pizza, these waffle iron pizzas are the perfect vessel for a sweet treat—s’mores anyone?
