Easy Pizza Toast with National Bread Week 2018

As a Super Busy Mum – ah ha! Do you see what I did there? I am always looking for quick and simple meal ideas for lunches, dinners or even a quick & easy after-school snack. You may have caught my post last week, sharing a delicious batch of rainbow sandwiches for National Bread Week. My youngest daughter is a big fan and loves finding them in her lunch box – they are super healthy too, which is a winner. 

I touched based on what National bread week is over on my previous post, so I won’t go over it again. I will mention that it is organised by the FCBA {Flour Confectionery and Bakers Association} & the IBBA {Irish Bread Bakers Assiociation} in conjunction with the Northern Ireland Bakery Council.

National Bread Week takes place between the 10th – 16th September. It’s a week dedicated to our love of Irish bread here in Northern Ireland & Ireland. It comes as no surprise that we love our bread here {just as much as our potatoes!} because you can’t beat a few slices with a bowl of stew {especially in the colder months} or the classic lunch choice – the crisp sandwich. 

I am bringing you one our family favourites when it comes to dinner time – Pizza Toast! We love pizza {who doesn’t!} and it’s such a simple meal to put together.

What you’ll need;

  • Sliced white bread {however many you need!}
  • Tomato puree paste {or, if you’re a wizard – you can make your own!}
  • Mozerella to sprinkle on your bread
  • Topping of choice – we went with pepperoni
  • I like to add vegetables to our pizzas {any excuse to get it into the kids!} so with this we went with red peppers}
  • A little bit of parsley to add once they are baked

I don’t need to go through the steps of making pizza, because when you know, you know, right? It is honestly so simple to put together, it takes 15-20mins in total to prep, make, bake & serve. I mean, that’s exactly what you need when you have a herd of hungry little humans, am I right?

We would make pizza toast maybe…once a week and I’m trying to get the kids to be more adventurous with their pizza toppings {there is only so much pepperoni this Mama can consume!}. So hopefully we will go for a nice peri chicken next time or even chicken curry topped pizza toast {something I have always wanted to try}.

What do you think? Do you think it will be nice or a complete flop?

Nothing’s easier than grabbing a few ingredients from your cupboard & fridge, pulling out a few slices of bread and going to town on creating something delicious! 

The joy of a recipe like this is that it is so versatile. Pizza can come with all kinds of amazing toppings, bases and sauces and I would love to hear your favourites!

    Growing up in a household of my Dad being a baker and his Dad before him, I love baking bread, I have made pizza toast before I also use pitta bread as a base as well x

    I’m a huge fan of melted cheese on toast, especially with some baby plum tomatoes, I don’t eat pepperoni but I know my boys would love this
