I believe that even subpar pizza is pizza. It’s pretty much always delicious and dang hard to mess up the trifecta of crust, sauce and cheese. This recipe gets you from hungry to pizza-eating in the same amount of time it would take you to make pancakes, plus a little bronzing under the broiler. There are few times in my life that I will turn down pizza or pancakes, and when they come together to make these fun and easy Mini Pizza Pancakes, it’s basically impossible not to try at least one…or a few! I mean, it’s a tender pancake in a pizza outfit, and there’s a lot to love.
These pancakes are made following the simple Bisquick method, but I’ve added some cornmeal and chives for a punch of texture and flavor. The cornmeal and chives in these pancakes make a decidedly savory base for pizza fixin’s. Traditional pizza toppings, plus a quick trip under the broiler, makes these pancakes look just like the real deal.
We begin by mixing the classic Bisquick pancake ingredients with cornmeal.
