Dad’s love to eat! So why not treat him to something delicious for Father’s Day (or any day, because these sound amazing)?
Yes. Pizza should be on the food pyramid. And waffles? Divine. And—diverse. Whip these up for dad and he’ll forget about that foolish tie you bought him. Again…

2¼ cups Pancake Mix (315 gr.)
2 tsp Italian seasoning
½ tsp salt
2 tsp oregano
pinch of cayenne
¼ tsp granulated garlic
¼ tsp granulated onion
½ cup milk
½ cup pizza sauce
¼ cup oil
2 eggs, separated
¼ tsp vinegar or lemon juice
½ cup Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
1 oz. pepperoni, chopped small
2 oz. sliced black olives, well drained (Optional)
1 bunch green onions, half the white and all the green, sliced
1 cup shredded mozzarella or combo of pizza cheeses
½ cup Swiss cheese, grated
½ cup Parmesan, shredded
Cook and crumble sausage; drain and chill. In a medium bowl add all shredded cheeses and mix well. Chop the pepperoni and slice the green onions; mix well with the cheeses. Add chilled, crumbled sausage and black olives. Mix all together and chill.
In a large bowl, whisk together Baking & Pancake mix, and all herbs and spices. Separate yolks from the egg whites. Beat egg whites with vinegar until stiff. Chill. In a large measuring cup or small bowl combine pizza sauce, milk and egg yolks; mix with a fork until well combined. Mix into Pancake Mix and stir until smooth, with no lumps. Prior to combining stiff egg whites into batter, preheat waffle iron to medium high.
As the final step to pizza filling, add cheese and meat mixture to the pancake mixture and mix until well incorporated. Fold the egg whites into the waffle mixture. It takes a little time for the whites to incorporate. Keep folding until there are no more streaks of white.
Bake immediately in a well sprayed waffle iron. Once cooked; keep warm in a 200°oven, on a rack on a sheet pan, or serve.
Great with ranch dressing to dip into.
