I am always looking for new ways to enjoy our favorite foods; it helps keep dinner from getting boring. I’ve really been into wraps and flatbreads lately. I decided it was time to mix it up a bit. Pancakes! I am all for breakfast at dinner, but I wanted to make savory pancakes. Since pizza is my all-time favorite food, I decided to give pizza pancakes a try. They turned out to be really, really good!
I had a lot of fun making the pancakes. I finally got to use my griddle that came with my stove. This is basically a pancake mix without sugar and your favorite pizza toppings mixed in. You can use whatever toppings your family likes. We used sausage, pepperoni and mushrooms. I don’t eat mushrooms, so I just sprinkled the mushrooms on Chicken Leg’s pancakes when I scooped them onto the griddle. We loved this! I can see a lot more pancakes in our future!
2 cups Bisquick (I used Heart Healthy)
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup chopped pepperoni (I used turkey pepperoni)
1 cup sausage, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup mushrooms, sliced
pizza sauce, warmed
In a large bowl, combine the biscuit mix, Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. Combine eggs and milk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the cheese, pepperoni, sausage and mushrooms.
Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls (I used a large cookie scoop) onto a lightly greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the seconds side is golden brown. Serve with pizza sauce.
