Hoff’s Waffle Pizza Crust

Hoff's Waffle Pizza Crust

Yields: 6ish Pizza Crusts

dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free 


  • 2 cups Chickpea Flour
  • 2 cups Water 
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt 

  1. Using a high speed, blend all ingredients until smooth (about 30 seconds)
  2. Add more Water if necessary to get a batter consistency
  3. Let set-up for 10 minutes
  4. Cook like any other Waffle, but using a non-stick waffle plate/mold, no oil needed
  5. Add Sauce & toppings
  6. Air-fry at 400 degrees for 2-3 minutes

Hoff Thoughts: I prefer to use my Cuisinart Griddler - they now sell waffle plates (just make sure to order the right size for your Griddler model) But I have also used silicon waffle molds, baking in the oven.
