From Ashley’s Macroed Kitchen: Pizza Waffle

Who doesn’t love pizza AND waffles? While it seems like a weird combination at first, I promise you that savory waffles are a thing…a great, great thing.  Give this one a try!

Pizza Waffle

Ingredients
For Waffle:
1 egg
¼ c. riced cauliflower (I use frozen)
8 slices of turkey pepperoni, torn or cut into small bits
½ tsp. of Italian seasoning
½ c. mozzarella, shredded
½ c. cheddar, shredded
2 tbsp. parmesan, grated

For Sauce:

Store-bought pizza sauce is fine, but if you want to make your own, use ours)
1 6-oz. can tomato paste
1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning

Instructions
For Waffle:
Spray waffle iron with non-stick spray. I love coconut oil spray.

Mix together all ingredients. Don’t stop until the egg has coated everything.

When waffle iron is hot, pour mixture into iron.

Cook according to your waffle iron directions. Mine wasn’t finished when the cycle ended and the light turned on, so I pushed down on the top of the iron and let it run for another 30 seconds or so. Then, it was perfect. Your results may vary.

Remove from waffle iron carefully and serve with sauce, if you’d like.

For the Sauce:

Combine everything.

Heat if desired.
