I’m back to following strict Keto and I am loving it. I cannot deny how much better I feel when I am strict on the Keto diet. Add in intermittent fasting, and I feel like a million bucks! When I am strict on Keto, I tend to eat the same things over and over again. While it does’t typically bother me, I do like to introduce new foods into my daily routine. When I read about the chaffle, I knew I had to try it. Tonight I made a spicy chaffle pizza and it was amazing!

What is a “Keto Chaffle Pizza”?
You may be sitting there thinking, “what in the world is a chaffle pizza?” and believe me, I was right there with you a few weeks ago. As it turns out, a chaffle is cheese waffle, only it doesn’t have flour in it. Say what? No wonder this is so Keto friendly! I did Keto religiously for three years and had never heard of this thing. Now that I have, it’s all I want to eat!

Spicy Keto Chaffle Pizza
Delicious recipe for a chaffle pizza, perfect for those following a low carb or Keto diet.
Chaffle Pizza "Dough"
- 1 Large Egg
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
- Salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
- Garlic Powder to taste
- Red Pepper Flakes to taste
Chaffle Pizza Toppings
- 1 1/2 TBSP Rao's Pizza Sauce (2 tsp per chaffle)
- 6 slices Pepperoni
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese to taste
Plug in your waffle iron and spray with cooking spray if your machine requires it.
Beat your egg slightly. Add the shredded cheese and seasonings and mix it up.
Sprinkle a little bit of cheese on the waffle iron. If you are using the mini Dash waffle iron, place half of your chaffle "dough" mixture in the waffle iron and close the lid.
Cook for about 5 minutes, or until your desired crispiness has been reached.
Remove the chaffle and put the remaining chaffle "dough" mixture on the waffle iron and cook again.
When both chaffles are cooked, place on your pizza baking dish and top with the Rao's Pizza Sauce and desired toppings. Broil on low for about 5-6 minutes. Be sure to watch this part carefully so you don't burn your Spicy Keto Chaffle Pizza.
