Quick and easy Pizza Toast is one of our favorite recipes to make for a busy weeknight dinner or a satisfying after-school snack. Everyone loves them!

Faster than Delivery!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I make pizza toast several times a week. We all love pizza, but sometimes I just don’t have the time to make and bake a pizza dough or order and wait on pizza delivery. This pizza toast can be made in 20 minutes and we all love it!

What to Serve with Pizza Toast?

For dinner, I’ll serve it alongside a big salad. For lunch, I usually put out veggies and hummus to go with it. And for an after-school snack, I cut each toast into fourths and serve it with fruit. They’re easy to make, easy to eat and easy to clean up after. YES!!

Fun and Flexible

I try to always have sandwich bread, pizza sauce (or marinara sauce), mozzarella cheese and mini pepperoni on hand so I can make these anytime we want them. I love that I can make just one or a dozen of them depending on how many I want to serve. And you can adjust the toppings however you’d like. We usually keep it pretty simple with cheese and pepperoni, but I can see how some peppers, fresh basil, mushrooms, a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, and even pineapple (did I just start a fight 😜) could dress these up quite nicely. Just grab your favorite pizza toppings and go for it! You can even make these on sourdough, if you have it on hand. It’s a fun and flexible recipe you’re sure to make over and over again!

How to Make Pizza Toast

There are a few tricks to making this pizza toast taste its best. First, you’ll want to toast the bread for about 5 minutes by itself to crisp it up a bit. If you’re just making a couple of slices, a toaster over would work just fine! Otherwise, bake in the oven. Once it’s toasted, then you’ll add the pizza sauce (I usually use store-bought sauce from a jar), cheese (a good melty mozzarella) and mini pepperoni (I find them at Target, but you can use regular sized pepperoni too) before returning it to the oven to get the cheese melty and the pepperoni glistening.

And that’s all there is to it! This is great recipe to make with your kids or better yet, let your kids make themselves.

So so yummy!

  1. The mini pepperonis. So much cuteness. And so much cheesy deliciousness. Not sure why I haven’t tried this before, but I’m SO glad I found your post! Truly a snackspiration!

    1. Hi Caryn! Absolutely! Such a great idea! Definitely freeze them in individual baggies and then put on a pan and set the oven to 350 letting the toast heat up as the oven preheats. When the oven comes to 350, the toast should be done or almost done. Enjoy!

  2. Maegan : Love your creative, outside the box ideas/recipes ! ! I cook at a group home for teens and many of your recipes are fun for teens. I will try the ???? toast cut into small triangles, veggies and dip for snack time. Thank you for sharing your ideas/recipes. Much appreciated ! !

  3. Made these for the first time tonight. So good! The second pan I made, I didn’t cook the toast for 5 minutes before because it burnt the toast cooking it the second time. Adding the toppings and then popping the toast in for 6 mins Makes them perfect!

  4. Amazing pizza toast recipe. I really love this amazing recipe and want to cook it. Thanks for sharing such an awesome recipe.

  5. This looks so delicious! Your photos are just gorgeous too Alida! (as usual!) I love that the kids love doing the videos with you. So fun!
