Sometimes waffles can be a great thing to chow down on for dinner, but what if you could take your favourite breakfast food and turn it into a cheesy, meat-filled, flavourful pocket of joy? That’s pretty much what you can expect from pizza waffles, and they’re so easy to make, that anyone can do it.

What are pizza waffles?

Pizza waffles have the same look and feel as waffles without all of the sugar that so often goes along with them. With a thick layer of cheese and spices, another of salty meaty pepperoni, and a delightful cannabis-infused marinara sauce, you can’t go wrong with this one, be it on game day to celebrate, or for a personal treat as a pick me up.

This recipe for pizza waffles only provides 4 full servings (meal) or 8 snack-sized portions so be sure to multiply the ingredients as necessary. You’ll also need a small amount of cannabis-infused olive oil, so if you don’t have any, then now is the time to make some.

  • 32 slices of pepperoni

  • 14 oz pizza sauce

  • 8 oz refrigerated crescent rolls
