Basically, I like the crunchiness and the little pockets that hold your butter and syrup. When I saw this recipe for waffle pizzas, I figured it would be just as good. Crunchy little squares that can hold more sauce and cheese!
Recipe from Food Network
1/3 c. tomato puree
1 Tbsp. olive oil
salt & pepper, to taste
3 basil leaves, torn
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1/2+ c. mozzarella, shredded
additional pizza toppings, optional
1. Make the pizza sauce by combining the tomato puree, olive oil, salt, pepper, basil, and garlic. Stir well then let sit until you're ready to make your pizzas (the longer you leave it, the better the flavor will be).
2. Separate the pizza dough into smaller sections (an 8 oz. ball of dough will make 4 personal sized waffle pizzas). Spread out into a circle the size of you waffle maker on a lightly floured surface.
3. Brush both sides of the dough with olive oil. Preheat the waffle maker. When the waffle maker is heated up, put one section of the dough on at a time. Cook until golden brown.
4. Top with tomato sauce, cheese and any additional toppings that you like. Place under the broiler set to high for about 5 minutes (watch carefully so they do not burn).
