Next time you’ve got a pizza craving (weekly for anyone else?!), you’ve got to give this keto chaffle pizza recipe a try! It’s similar to my cheese crust pizza, yet has all the extra crunch from cooking in a waffle maker. While some chaffles taste eggy, I’ve perfected a version that has a texture more like a crisp waffle. This pizza chaffle is seasoned with Italian seasoning and then topped with pizza toppings for a quick version of a keto pizza.
For more details about chaffles, check out my complete guide to chaffles, that also includes FIVE different chaffle recipes to try — both sweet and savory options. You can also try my standalone chocolate chaffle recipe.
In these chaffles, a small amount of ingredients goes a long way, but each one matters! In particular, Wholesome Yum Almond Flour and Psyllium Husk Powder give the chaffle crust the perfect amount of bready, chewy texture, without the extra carbs!
What Are Pizza Chaffles?
Pizza chaffles are a chaffle (cheese + egg waffle) that’s seasoned with Italian seasoning and then topped with pizza classics like marinara sauce, cheese, and pepperoni.
It’s pizza in a keto waffle form! And if you need another delicious spin on pizza, try a keto calzone instead.
Quick chaffle pizza recipe overview:
- What do pizza chaffles taste like? They taste like… pizza! They have an Italian seasoned waffle crust that’s topped with traditional pizza toppings.
- Is it easy to make? Yes! Mix, cook in a waffle iron, then top and broil. That’s it. No dough to make!
- How much time will I need? These are ready to eat in 15 minutes. Five to mix up, five to cook, and five to cool.
Chaffle Pizza Recipe Ingredients
If you’ve made chaffles or keto pizza before, you probably have the ingredients you need to make these keto chaffle pizzas:
For the seasoned chaffle:
- Mozzarella cheese – Buy it already shredded to save some time.
- Egg – Use a large egg for best results.
- Wholesome Yum Blanched Almond Flour – All almond flour is not created equally, this brand is super fine and blanched for the best texture in your pizza chaffles. If you need a nut-free option, you can substitute coconut flour but will need to use 2 teaspoons coconut flour instead of 2 tablespoons almond flour.
- Wholesome Yum Psyllium Husk Powder – This helps to give the chaffle a “chew” that is typical of wheat gluten.
- Italian seasoning – It’s so easy to mix up your own, but you can also use a store-bought version.
- Garlic powder – Helps to give it that traditional pizza flavor.
- Baking powder – Optional, but recommended for a fluffier chaffle.
For the pizza toppings:
- Marinara sauce – Be sure to look for a sugar-free marinara sauce.
- Mozzarella cheese – The same kind that’s in the crust.
- Pepperoni – It’s my topping of choice for this pizza (and I try to find an organic brand when possible), but you can use any low carb foods you’d normally find on a pizza.
How To Make Pizza Chaffles
This chaffle pizza recipe comes together in just 15 minutes!
- Preheat waffle iron. Preheat a mini waffle iron until hot.
- Make chaffle pizza crust. In a medium bowl, stir together mozzarella cheese, egg, almond flour, psyllium husk powder, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and baking powder.
- Cook pizza chaffles. Pour half of the batter into the preheated mini waffle maker. Cook until browned and crispy. Repeat with remaining batter. Let the chaffles cool a bit to crisp up.
TIP: A good doneness indicator is when there is no more steam coming out of the sides of the waffle iron. When this happens, you can gently lift the lid to check if the chaffle is browned.
- Assemble. Arrange pizza chaffles on a baking sheet and top with marinara, mozzarella, and pepperoni.
- Broil. Place the pan under the broiler until the cheese is melted and browned.
Keto Chaffle Pizza FAQs
How many carbs in keto pizza chaffles?
Each chaffle has 4.6 grams net carbs. The perfectly fast way to enjoy pizza on keto. The full nutrition stats can be found below the recipe card.
Can you make a pizza chaffle without egg?
Because the chaffles rely on eggs for both structure and texture, it’s difficult to make a chaffle without eggs.
You can try using an egg replacement such as flax eggs, but I have not tested alternatives.
Can you use different pizza toppings?
Yes, you can use whatever pizza toppings you like! The nutrition facts will change slightly, based on what you use.
Store these pizza chaffles in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Ideally, you would store the chaffles without the toppings. When you’re ready to reheat, top the chaffles and broil.
Can you freeze pizza chaffles?
Yes, you can. Unlike some chaffle recipes that use only egg and cheese, the flour and other ingredients in this one will make them last a long time. You can freeze them for 4-6 months.
Reheat chaffles in a 350 degree F oven, until hot. You can reheat them from the fridge or even right from frozen.
What To Serve With Chaffle Pizza
