BREAD PIZZA- A Yummy Cheesy Twist


bread pizza

The last couple of days for most of us parents have been blissful, with holidays, traveling and relatives occupying the day. There was no school, and no added headache of what to prepare for breakfast or what to pack for next day’s lunch. With school now almost about to resume, all the headache starts once again; the early morning whining, the running about, rush in the kitchen and then off to school…….and we are sailing in the same boat.

Making it a little easier for you, are our list of recipes and foods that we have compiled over the last few months, which can be found at http://kidsdirectorybangalore.in/category/receipe-of-the-week/. Do go through the archives and when you are stuck for inspiration, rustle something quick with whatever you can find.

Today’s recipe, is a twist to the children’s perennial favourite ‘pizza’, the BREAD PIZZA. Simple to make and quick to rustle up, it can even become your last minute lunch box option if you don’t have anything else on hand. Learn how to make this, by following the recipe below.


  • Bread
  • Garlic
  • Black pepper
  • Dry oregano
  • Basil
  • Tomato
  • Cheese
  • Olive oil


1. Begin by slicing the bread into two and placing them in a baking tray. You can also cover the tray with aluminum foil and place the bread slices on it. Toast the bread in a preheated oven at 200 C for about 8 to 12 minutes or more, till they are lightly toasted and golden. The slices can also be easily toasted in an electric toaster or on a tava/griddle.


2. Next, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan and add finely chopped garlic and sauté for half a minute on a low flame. There is no need to brown the garlic.

3. Add finely chopped tomatoes to the pan and sauté them till the tomatoes soften. Finally, add black pepper, dry oregano and basil, season with salt and stir everything well.


4. Then add sliced onions, steamed corn kernels and bell peppers, even veggies like sautéed mushrooms, baby corn, steamed potatoes, cherry tomatoes and olives to the pan and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. The veggies need not be cooked through.


5. When the bread slices are lightly toasted, remove them from the oven.

6. Top the sauteed veggies on the bread slices. If you want you can also spread some butter/olive oil on the bread first and then top the prepared veggies, and finally dot the veggies with tomato sauce.

7. Sprinkle some grated cheese (amul, cheddar or mozzarella cheese) over the bread slices.


8. Place the tray back in the oven and bake at 200 C for 8 to 12 minutes or till the cheese melts or gets light browned.

9. Finally pack this Pizza Bread for your kid’s lunchbox or serve with red chili flakes, oregano and tomato ketchup for breakfast.
