Lazy Chaffle Pizza Casserole (Kid-Friendly)


Special thanks to the sponsor of this recipe, www.After-School-Math-Help.com, providers of online interactive learning and math tutoring.

You folks trying to manage a low carb lifestyle with little ones about have my total respect. I’ve been there, man.

In my early twenties, I had THREE littles under the age of five! What’s more, my husband and I both worked full time.

I’ll never forget dragging home after work, running on nothing but steam to collapse onto the couch. After a quick breather, my husband and I would scan one another’s faces, trying to decide who was the least exhausted. Whomever had the most energy was elected to find something–anything–to feed the kids. So yeah, I know how hard it can be.

If you’ve got littles about, maybe this drop-dead simple, kid-friendly recipe idea can help make a tired weeknight easier.

But if the kids are big enough to need help with math homework, I’m not your gal! You’d be far better off reaching out to today’s sponsor.


If your kids or grands struggle with math, help them build self-confidence as well as improve their grades without huge monthly fees or squeezing in 3-times-a-week trips to a tutoring center. Instead, for just $29.99/month (using code LowCarb25), kids can have 24/7 access to an Online Interactive Learning Program for Math, right from home or grandma’s house (or anywhere there is a computer).

Professional tutors monitor each child’s unique learning needs and take advantage of weekly live tutoring sessions to build on existing strengths and develop new skills. Whether a youngster could just use a little extra help or is already doing well but would like to get ahead, a strong early foundation in math will help develop skills for success that last a lifetime. Schedule a FREE consultation to learn more.

Pro tip: You can always make the chaffles ahead of time, and either toss them in the fridge for a few days or just freeze them to make this quick recipe even quicker. I won’t mind if you don’t thank me for this idea, though. You’re probably too tired!

  • Cover it all in cheese! Because, cheese.

  • It's easiest to use a single chaffle's worth as a serving here. Cutting these would be messy!

Recipe Notes

Please consider nutritionals an estimate, based on what you might use in terms of chaffles, sauce, cheese and pizza toppings. Basically all of it is ballpark, because it's going to vary from mine to yours. I'm also using the numbers for regular spaghetti sauce to make sure I don't underestimate what you've got on hand.
Bottom line: I'm not one to tell anybody how many pepperonis are "enough" for goodness sakes! That's more an extentiential question than a low carb recipe question...
