Recipe: Pizza Pancakes

So I was Tweeting on Twitter about our dinner this evening – Pizza Pancakes – and I had a number of people ask me questions about it, so I thought I would post the recipe, if you’re interested.

Let me preface this by saying – this is not one of our favorite recipes. And this was only the second time I’ve made it. I have a hard time either making it too dry or too runny, but it’s not bad, just different. I also didn’t take a lot of time with the pictures so they’re nothing like you’d see at The Pioneer Woman’s blog. 🙂

Let’s get started:

First, measure two cups of Bisquick in your bowl. Add one teaspoon of oregano (or Italian seasoning).


Add two eggs, one 1/2 cups of milk, stir.


Cut up about one cup of pepperoni and put it in the bowl.


I also added about 1/2 cup of mozzeralla cheese to the batter, too.

In the meantime, pour two jars of pizza sauce into a saucepan and add about one pound of hamburger meat to the sauce. Heat.

Spray your hot griddle down with grease and pour your pancake batter in. (I make the world’s UGLIEST pancakes – no really. We can be honest here. I tend to be an impatient cook so all I’m concerned with is getting it over with as soon as possible. I’m sure your pancakes would look prettier. *smile*)


Turn when bubbles form on top, cook until the second side is golden brown.

Serve with pizza / meat sauce on top. Sprinkle cut-up green peppers on top (for a little crunch) and add mozzarella cheese.


It’s not the prettiest meal, but it’s surprisingly good. Again, I have trouble with the meat sauce – either I don’t add enough juice and it’s a bit dry, or I add too much and the pancakes soak up too much and it’s soggy. But it might be a fun thing to cook with the kids and I’m betting the kids like it.

Here is the recipe if you want to copy / paste it:

Pizza Pancakes

2 cups Bisquick
1 tsp. Oregano
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (put in batter)
1 cup chopped pepperoni
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 jars pizza sauce
1/2 to 1 pound ground meat
Garlic (to taste – optional)

In a large bowl, combine the Bisquick mix, oregano (or Italian seasoning). Stir in eggs, milk until moistened. Fold in cheese and pepperoni.

On stove top, pour 2 jars pizza sauce into sauce pan. Add browned ground beef to pizza sauce – heat.

Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top, cook until the second side is a golden brown.

Serve. Pour pizza / meat sauce over top. Sprinkle green peppers and mozzarella cheese on top.
