Food,  For The Love Of...,  Keto

The Pizza Chaffle – Low Carb and Keto Friendly

This is the first time doing “keto” where most of my family has a desire to join in.  Now I am on a neverending quest to find and create foods that will keep them happy and interested in this way of life.  It is pretty easy to please me – alot less easy to please the kids.  This particular recipe is a hit for everyone.  Of course who doesn’t love pizza!

First I will note that you can put whatever you want on this Chaffle as long as it is keto friendly.  So if you like hamburger, pepperoni, veggies etc – just put them on.  Since I was trying to entice the kids I stuck to just cheese – their favorite.

This particular recipe is from 100+ Keto Chaffle Recipes by Sam Kuma. This book actually has multiple “pizza crust” chaffle recipes and this is the first one I tried.  I made a double batch for four people and it made 8.  However, they are quite filling and we all together only ate 5.  I doubt they will be good as a reheated item but I will find out tomorrow.

A single batch (makes 4 chaffles) is as follows:

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons almond flour

If you want round chaffles you should get yourself a Dash Mini Waffle Maker.  I have one but very seldom have a need for just one or two chaffles.  I love the round chaffles better and they are 4 inches and perfectly sized.  But to make 8 I would be standing there a while.

For a 4 square waffle maker I highly recommend Cuisinart WAF-300!  I love this thing!  Thankfully Santa was good to me this year and I found one under the tree!

Once the chaffles are cooked – add keto friendly pizza or marinara sauce and some toppings such as cheese, meats etc… Voila – yes you can do keto and have pizza too!
