I am an avid reader. To the point that I can barely set a book down once I am intrigued. When I start reading a good book, I live and breathe reading. This is only exacerbated when I am reading a series because when one book ends, another is just beginning! It’s kind of a problem.
During these feverish reading marathons (thank you, Hunger Games for taking over 3 days) I tend to get a bit distracted. Trivial matters starting dinner fall to the wayside. This is a meal for just such a day. These little pizza pockets are made with ingredients that are already in the refrigerator and are done in less than five minutes, thanks to the handy waffle maker!
*The sky is the limit when it comes to fillings! Use your favorite pizza toppings or even breakfast foods (ham & eggs? I think I see a future blog post!)
Waffle Iron Pizzas
Inspired by Get Off Your Butt& Bake
1 tube of refrigerated large Buttermilk Biscuits
12 slices turkey pepperoni, cut in quarters
2 tbsp bacon bits
½ cup mozzarella cheese
Preheat your waffle maker and spray it with non stick spray.
Roll the biscuits out into rounds that are slightly smaller than your waffle maker.
Place equal amounts of pepperoni, bacon bits, and cheese onto 4 of the flattened biscuits. Place the remaining biscuits on top, stretching to completely cover the filling. Use the tines of a fork to seal the edges of the waffles.
Place one pizza pocket into the waffle maker. Close tightly and cook for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining pizza pockets. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
