Recipe of the Week: Pizza Waffles

This week Captain Create does not want to turn on the oven to cook; its too hot outside! Summer cooking can be tough, because grown ups do not want to make more heat inside, even for tasty food like pizza. A microwave works with most foods, but even pre-made pizza always comes out of the microwave with a soggy crust. Soggy pizza is no fun but no worries!

Captain Create has a solution!

Use a waffle iron instead! Waffle irons only heat the panels on the inside, instead of a whole box of space like an oven, and still creates a hot pizza with a crispy crust, plus you can CREATE YOUR OWN PIZZA this way, and everyone gets exactly the lunch they want.

First, gather all the things you’d like in your pizza, then heat the waffle iron. It needs time to get hot while you mix the waffle batter/pizza crust. You can add any toppings, and be sure to cut them smaller than you would for a regular flat pizza. Consider combining a few different meats, veggies and fruit for your pizza like mushrooms, bell peppers, spinach, onions, olives, tomatoes, pepperoni, ham, pineapple, and fresh herbs. There are no rules; Create the pizza you want!

No waffle mix? Captain Create has the solution. This recipe makes a large-batch of waffle mix that you can make, then set aside until you need it. Use it just like a mix from the store (but you don’t have to go to the store. Isn’t that handy!)
