Low Carb Pizza Chaffle Recipe
Chaffles are a keto waffle that only call for a few ingredients and can be made quickly - in less than 5 minutes. Besides being simple to make, keto chaffles are delicious! Chaffles have a crispy outer crust just like a regular waffle.
Keto pizza chaffles combine two foodie favorites - pizza and waffles. These pizza chaffles are savory and contain pizza sauce, pepperoni and italian seasoning to produce a pizza flavored waffle. You could add any of your favorite pizza ingredients to make a customized keto pizza chaffle.
What is a Pizza Chaffle?
A pizza chaffle is a low carb pizza flavored waffle that is primarily made up cheese, egg, pizza sauce and pepperoni. The ingredients are mixed together and poured onto a waffle maker to cook. The result is a keto waffle that is flavored like a pizza! It’s the easiest way to enjoy pizza on the keto diet!
Chaffle Waffle Maker
You can use any waffle maker to make chaffles. A popular waffle maker is the mini waffle iron by Dash. It is small and makes the perfect sized chaffle.
If you only have access to a larger waffle maker, you can still make chaffles. Just pour the chaffle batter in the center of the waffle iron and close it. You don’t need to spread out the waffle batter. The batter will spread out by itself creating a perfect chaffle.
Do I Need to Grease my Waffle Maker?
I don’t butter or grease my waffle maker before cooking keto pizza chaffles. Fat will get released from the cheese as the chaffle cooks; therefore, the waffle won’t stick to the waffle maker.
You can grease the waffle maker you want - it won’t hurt it.
How to Store Chaffles
Keto pizza chaffles can be stored in the refrigerator or frozen. To freeze pizza chaffles, let them cool completely after cooking. Then freeze each chaffle on a plate or pan in the freezer for about 30 minutes. This flash freezes them. Store the pizza chaffles together in a ziploc bag.
To reheat chaffles, you can toast them in a toaster or heat them up in the oven. Some have tried the microwave too.
Pizza Chaffle Variations
Besides making a pepperoni pizza chaffle, you can add your favorite pizza ingredients to your chaffle. Here are a few suggestions:
- cooked bacon
- black olives
- chopped spinach
- green onion
