Easy bread pizza

Think pizza, think cheese! It’s usually the cheese we balk at, double layers of it if you please on some pizzas! I mean, what were they smoking…?! So when a pizza urge strikes but you don’t want to be fat stricken too, this recipe is the saviour. Use just a smattering of cheese, or mix crumbled paneer along with the cheese. You basically need an ingredient that will hold the veggies together. Use wheat or multi-grain bread and it’s even better!

My mother-in-law found bread pizza through the cooking-moms’ grapevine many years ago. It’s lurked long enough, here it is. Use whatever toppings you like, as long as they can be chopped or sized a little small and mixed in with a little grated cheese. And cook through a bit in the oven. Try zucchini, mushrooms, jalapenos, olives…

Servings: Makes 10 slices of the regular size sandwich bread


  • 2 medium green peppers chopped fine (I avoid using red or yellow peppers, because it sweetens the topping. Use them if you like it that way)
  • 2 medium tomatoes, deseeded and chopped fine
  • 2 medium onions, chopped fine
  • 2-3 cubes of cheddar cheese, grated. Grate some, mix in with the vegetables to get a fine mix. If you feel need more for the mixture to taste cheesy right, grate some more.
  • 1 green chilli, chopped very fine. Leave this out if you want any heat. Add a few drops of a spicy ketchup or chilli sauce.
  • Salt to taste
  • A loaf of bread (I use the regular sandwich bread)
  • A little butter or vegetable fat

Making it:

In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients, except the butter.

veggiesHeat an oven to 220 degrees C.

Cut the bread into shapes if you like or leave them whole. I used cookie cutters here. When done like this they even make nice party starters! If I’m making them for dinner though, I leave the slices whole.


Pile the vegetable x n top. of the slices. Pile them, because these bveggies will wilt and sink down a little once baked.

Grease a baking tray lightly with butter. Place the slices on the tray.

Bake for 5-7 minutes, until the bottom of the slices are crisp.

Serve hot with crushed pepper and ketchup, if you like.

    This looks like a yummy and simple thing to do. I like it that this has heaped veggies and less cheese. Maybe I can coax the kids to eat the veggies this way. Will try it out and let you know how it turned out.
