Pizza has got to be one of the most universally loved foods. No matter what you like, there’s something for you: everything from meat-lovers heaven to vegan-approved artichoke and bean-curd “cheeze”.
Unfortunately, making “real” pizza takes planning to make sure you have the right dough and toppings. But when you’ve forgotten the slow-cooker and have 15 minutes before you have to be out the door again, you need something, anything that won’t elicit grumbles and disagreement from the family.
Hence 10-minute Pizza Toast.
Pizza Toast can be made from pretty much anything you have in the fridge. At a minimum you need sauce, bread and cheese, but anything else can add some variety (turkey pepperoni and mushrooms are a great combo, as are olives and sweet peppers).
10-Minute Pizza Toast Recipe
Make as few or as many as you need all at once. For an adult or teenager, 2 slices, for younger kids 1 slice should do.
- 1 slice Bread
- 2 Tablespoons Tomato Sauce
- 2 Tablespoons Cheese
- Toppings, for example:
- Olives, red peppers and feta cheese
- Pepperoni and mushrooms
- Hot peppers, sweet peppers and olives
- Just plain cheese
- Oven or Toaster oven
- Baking tray and Spatula
Pre-heat your oven to 350F. This makes sure the cheese melts quickly.
Place your bread on the baking sheet.
Add 2 Tablespoons of tomato sauce per slice.
Add your toppings, but don’t overload the bread. You should still be able to see the sauce. Get the family involved, have them make their own. Good combinations include: olives and sweet peppers; pepperoni and mushrooms.
Add the cheese, making sure to spread it out. If you don’t have any other toppings, add another Tablespoon of cheese.
Bake for 5 minutes on 350F, or until the cheese melts.
Serve immediately. Slice them diagonally for a more “pizza” feel.
