Pizza Toast

Dude subscribes to a couple different cooking magazines.  In one of his recent issues, he found a recipe for pizza toast!

Despite being tired from the second week of 3rd grade, he was eager to get in the kitchen!  What I love about this recipe is that he can make it almost completely independently – he only wanted me to put the tray into the oven and remove it (not that I didn’t trust him to be careful, he just wasn’t comfortable doing it himself – yay for self-awareness!)

This makes a great little lunch that’s completely customizable and it’s so fun to see my little man so proud of his meal!  In fact, we’ve eaten what Dude now refers to as his “Famous Pizza Toast” twice this week (with another night requested)!

Pizza Toast
Adapted from ChopChop Magazine, Fall 2016 Issue

4 slices 100% whole wheat bread (or homemade)
¼ cup pizza sauce (or homemade)
½- ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup mini pepperoni

Lightly toast the bread.  Place the toast on a baking sheet.

Spread 1 tablespoon of sauce onto each piece of toast.  Top with 2-3 tablespoons of shredded cheese and a sprinkle on mini pepperoni.

Place the pizzas under the broiler of the oven for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown.  Serve immediately.
