Easy pizza toast is the ultimate after school snack for kids (and the adults will love it too). Use any toppings of your choice in this 5-minute treat.

Easy pizza toastI’m so often asked for easy recipe ideas for kids. Both recipes they’ll love and recipes they can make themselves. And luckily for me I have two very eager pre-teens ready to play guinea pig whenever I come up with a new idea.

Not that this is technically a new idea. My mom used to make a version of this pizza toast for us when we were kids and she had to conjure up something delicious with minimal fuss. She used to toast the bread (just like we have here) and then top it with the canned tomato and onion mix and handfuls of grated cheddar. I’ve refined a little more and gone a more pizza-inspired route.

Easy pizza toastI still used good old sliced white bread but feel free to use whatever bread you want. Tortillas are also awesome here. I then used some of my pizza/roasted tomato sauce and topped it with grated mozzarella and slices of salami. Finished with oregano, it tasted like actual pizza but took approximately an eight of the time. Score!

Aidan LOVED making this pizza toast recipe and he very quickly polished off two slices before asking for more. What I love about this recipe so much is that he really did everything himself. From toasting the bread to grating the cheese, all I helped him with was dealing with the oven because if he is anything like his mom, he will have more than a few burn scars sooner rather than later.
