Pepperoni Pizza Chaffles

Makes Two low-Carb Pizzas

Some of you may know that I have started back on a descent eating regime, and the first I have done is removed carbs from my diet. Yup, I have switched from a high-carb diet to a low-carb diet, and for the past five weeks, I have removed 99% of all pasta, bread, rice, chips, crackers, and potato from my plate. As an Italian, giving up bread & pasta is harder than getting a 6yr old out of Baskin & Robins with just a dry bag of Cheerios! So I hunted the internet for low-carb options, and this thing called a Chaffle was popping up all over the place.

I want to thank everyone in the Low Carb Recipes & Advice Facebook Group for all the different ideas. I have many more recipes to conger up form their suggestions and will be posting them here in the coming weeks.

While not the texture of a think-crust pizza, the Almond Flour does give the Chaffle a chewier texture than without. They taste awesome and with a verity of different ingredients, these will definitely satisfy that pizza craving!

Chaffles are a quick cooked egg and cheese batter made on a mini waffle maker that forms the basis for dozens of inspiration for meals and desserts! From cinnamon waffle chaffles to basic two-ingredient easy low-carb chaffles, to pizza chaffles, or even chaffle breakfast sandwiches, the chaffle has become my new favorite go-to “bread” replacement.

While not the texture of a think-crust pizza, the Almond Flour does give the Chaffle a chewier texture than without.

Total: 15 minutes
Prep: 5 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 1 egg, Egg
  • 10 slices, Pepperoni Slices
  • 1/8 tsp, Italian Seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp, Spices, garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp, Almond Flour
  • 3/4 cup, Mozzarella Cheese
  • 3 tbsps, Roasted Garlic Marinara Sauce


  1. Heat up the Mini Waffle Maker and pre-heat the oven on broil
  2. Mix Egg, 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese, Garlic Powder, Italian Seasoning and almond flourtogether in a bowl (makes enough for 2 Chaffles)
  3. Pour 1/2 the batter into the mini waffle maker and cook until it stops steaming
  4. Remove the chaffle and make the second one
  5. Put the chaffles onto a wire rack on a cookie sheet
  6. Spread the marinara sauce on the chaffles and add the rest of the mozzarella cheese and pepperoni
  7. Broil in the Oven (or Toaster Oven) until the cheese is melted
  8. Let cool and serve


  • This does make two Chaffle Pizzas.
  • The Mini-Waffle Irons can be found on Amazon for under $10 bucks. If you are cooking for more than one person, it's worth getting two.
  • Pull the Chaffle as soon as it stops steaming so that it does not overcook. Remember that it is still going in the broiler and will cook a bit more in there.
  • If you want a little more crunchy crust, add some raw mozzarella to the bottom of the waffle iron before adding your batter.

    All Trails Lead to Riches!

    All season long, I am outdoors testing new products and consider them for reviews, some I keep, many I don’t. For the ones I don’t keep, once reviewed and photographed, I give them away to followers of The Outdoor Life blog who have subscribed to my newsletter! Products are typically for Biking, Hiking, Backpacking, Kayaking, Camping, and other outdoor activities. Once I accumulate 3-4 items, I use an online random picker and select a name for each item, email you for your address and send it on its way. No strings attached!
