Pizza Toast

Pizza toast is a delicious open-faced sandwich topped with all the things you would put on pizza. This is more of an idea than a recipe but we really like this 15-minute recipe, especially when we crave pizza and want something quick and easy.

  • 4 slices toast bread
  • 3 tablespoons soft butter
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 slices ham
  • 4 slices smoked mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup shredded regular low-moisture mozzarella
  • 3 small button mushrooms sliced and sauteed in a pan
  • 1/8 red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup canned corn
  • basil pesto to serve


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Spread the bread with a thin layer of butter and place on a baking tray. When the oven is hot, place the bread in the oven and bake for about 5-6 minutes or until golden (keep an eye on it to not burn it).
  • Take the toasted bread out of the oven. Tu rn it over and spread 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce on each slice of toast.
  • Top with sliced ham.
  • Place smoked gouda slices on top, then sprinkle shredded mozzarella. Place all your favorite toppings on top - in my case - sauteed sliced mushrooms, finely diced bell pepper, and canned corn.
  • Bake for 6-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  • Drizzle a small amount of pesto on each toast.
  • Enjoy!


  • For a simpler pizza toast, you can just use pizza sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni.
  • You could also toast the bread under the broiler/grill but you need to keep an eye on it in order not to burn it. Air fryer and toaster oven also work great, especially for a small batch.
  • Calories = 1 pizza toast (1/4 of the recipe). This is only an estimate!
