Then cover with shredded mozzarella and top with your favorite toppings and sprinkle a bit more mozzarella cheese.  Note: cut your toppings up nice and small so you can get good coverage.  Place under broiler or in toaster oven and cook until cheese is melted.  Keep an eye on them so they don't burn!  Enjoy...Steveithechaffleguy says:  Make some of the chaffles up ahead of time and freeze them. Then pop them in the toaster and add your toppings and you have quick pizzas anytime you feel the need...Check out our IG or FB for a picture of this weeks finished chaffle here!For more chaffle goodness, visit Steve I The Chaffle Guy on IG https://www.instagram.com/steveithechaffleguy/  OR on FB: https://www.facebook.com/steveithechaffleguy/Visit our website at https://www.bariatricbros.com/Follow us on all the socials @bariatricbros Email us: bariatricbros@gmail.comText us: 443-356-6779Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/bariatricbros)
