Tomato Ham and Cheese Pizza Waffles


This past week I visited Angela from LeMoine Family Kitchen. In case you missed my post about pizza waffles here is how it went down.
Few weeks back I made  Raspberry Ricotta Waffles from a little book "Waffles"  I bought over the holidays, and since it was a hit  I decided try something else.  Tomato Ham and Cheese Pizza Waffles. These pizza waffles are perfect for lunch or a quick snack. They also come with a bonus:  kids  love them. Did I mention you can just eat them on the go, too.
Great thing is that you can actually freeze  plain cooked  waffles and then when ready to make pizza waffles just stuff them with some toppings, bake or use your toaster oven and enjoy.



Basic Pizza Waffle Recipe (makes about 10 waffles)
1 packet dry yeast(7grams)
1tsp honey
1cup  warm water
2eggs
5tbl olive oil
1 1/4 cup flour
1tsp kosher salt
1/8tsp pepper

Toppings
1cup cut up turkey ham
1cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
oregano or dry basil
  • In a bowl of you mixer, whisk together warm water and honey, add yeast and stir in. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes.
  • In another bow stir together flour, salt and and pepper, set aside.
  • Once the yeast mixture has bubbles on the top, to the same bowl add  flour mixture, eggs and olive oil and beat using a paddle attachment until smooth. About 3 minutes.
  •  Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let proof for 30 minutes in a warm place.
  • Lightly grease and preheat waffle iron. At this time you can also start preheating the oven to 350F.
  • Spoon 3 tbl of  pizza waffle batter onto the each grid, depending on how big your waffle iron is, mine took about 3 tbl each waffle grid.
  • Cook for about 3 minutes, or until the light on the waffle iron indicates so.
  • Continue making waffles until you finished with all the batter.
  • Once the waffles are cooked, evenly distribute cut up ham, tomatoes and cheese on top of each waffle. Sprinkle with oregano or dry basil.
  • Bake at 350F for 10 minutes, until cheese is nicely bubbly.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Tips: make waffles ahead of time, freeze them for an easy put together snack or lunch. Use variety of toppings as well.
