Bread Pizza

I love making my own pizzas at home with several fun toppings. I try to make it more healthy my reducing the fat content and using whole wheat flour. I also experiment with various kinds of healthy toppings. I have also made tortilla pizza which is fun and easy to make as a simple starter or snack. This time I tried making the pizza with a bread as base. I used a whole wheat bread as a base. I also used a store bought pizza sauce. All I had to do was chop a handful of veggies, and assemble the ingredients. It is a matter of minutes and makes a great healthy snack.


It is a great way to sneak in veggies in a kids diet making it more appealing. There is no particular way to make this bread pizza / breadizza. But here is my version. you can experiment with your own favorite veggies.

Ingredients (Makes 2 servings)

Whole wheat bread - 2 slices
Veggies - 1/2 cup (combination of mushrooms, bell peppers, jalapenos, onions)
Pizza sauce / Marinara sauce - 3 tablespoons
Cheese - a handful. I used mozzarella
Butter - 1 teaspoon (optional)

Directions


Toast the bread with a little butter. Spread the pizza sauce on one side. and top with the chopped vegetables. Sprinkle the cheese on top.

For the finishing part. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 F for 2 to 3 minutes, until the cheese melts. Alternatively, you could microwave the bread for two minutes. Or you can heat the tawa till medium heat, place the bread pizza and cover with a lid until the cheese melts.

Serve warm!

Topping suggestions : Pineapple, olives, jalapenos, broccoli, tomatoes, capsicum etc.

Isnt it that simple!
