Pizza Toast is like a personal size pizza with your favorite toppings that comes together in under 10 minutes!
Pizza toast may just be my new favorite snack.
Picture this: it’s Sunday morning. You and your friends threw a crazy party the night before and there are beer bottles and leftover wine everywhere. Despite the mess, there’s also leftover pizza, and lots of it. You grab a slice and devour it in seconds and can’t believe how good leftover pizza tastes. Oh and yeah, pizza for breakfast is totally ok.
Second scenario: it’s Wednesday morning and there’s no pizza for breakfast. You immediately start crying.
STOP CRYING because now you can have pizza in 5 minutes! For instance, there’s pizza toast! While it may not be an entire pizza, it’s just enough to satisfy your craving while still keeping things relatively healthy.
The first scenario above doesn’t really reflect my current life at all, but it’s still a scenario that I imagine applies to someone. Anyway, there are many kinds of food that people consider to be “the best”. For example, chocolate. Everyone can agree that chocolate is amongst one of the greatest foods there is. Secondly, there’s PIZZA. Who doesn’t love pizza? It’s customizable, comes in many sizes and is almost always topped with cheese.
Personally, I love pizza because it’s comforting and versatile. While I obviously love homemade pizza, I don’t always have time to prepare an entire pizza and honestly, sometimes I just want a slice! One singular slice. What’s a gal to do? Well, whip up this toast pizza of course.
LET’S MAKE PIZZA TOAST:
Bread: the base of pizza toast is of course bread. You can use whatever kind of bread you want–honestly, whatever you had on hand works. But, if you want to up your pizza toast game, go for a higher quality bread.
Cheese: again, there are a few different cheeses you can use in this recipe. I used mozzarella, but parmesan, havarti or burrata would all work really well.
Toppings: this is the fun part! You can use whatever toppings you choose. After all, the fun part about homemade pizza of any kind is that the toppings are customizable. I went with tomatoes, pepperoni and fresh basil. Remember that although you can use whatever toppings you’d like, you’re kind of limited in terms of space since you’re just using a slice of bread, so choose wisely!
For this pizza, you’ll simply place a slice of your favorite bread on a baking sheet, then add the toppings. Then, you’ll bake the “pizza” until the cheese melts, which shouldn’t take more than five minutes.
Most importantly, pizza toast is great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, a snack, and maybe even dessert if pizza for dessert is your thing. …which is probably should be because, no matter the time of day, pizza is always a good idea.
