Being a great fan of pizza in any form this one is really special to me. When I dont have a pizza base ready at hand and really want a bite of a cheesy pizza I make these little Toastizzas.

I bought a bottle of Maggie Pizza Sauce a few months ago. It had a recipe booklet inside which suggested many different types of Pizzas. I liked Toastizza the most among them.

Toastizza is like an open sandwich which you can close with a grilled butter toast if you like. This is my entry to the Sandwich Festival hosted by Anupama.

Ingredients :

  • 2 bread slices
  • 2 tablespoons of Pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup of chopped mixed veggies (onion, capsicum, mushroom, Fresh corn, Spring onions)
  • Grated cheese

Procedure :

  1. Heat oil. Cook mixed veggies until soft.
  2. Place bread slice on a greased oven plate.
  3. Apply Pizza sauce on it. Spread cooked veggies on it and sprinkle with some grated cheese.
  4. Preheat oven at 180 Deg C. Bake Toastizzas for 3-5 mins, till cheese melts.

Variation :

  1. If you dont have Pizza sauce then blanch tomatoes and fry the puree in oil with some salt and pepper till it reduces to a sauce.
  2. If you want to eat it as a closed sandwich apply butter on a plain slice of bread and bake it along with your toastizza, by the side. Once done, close the toastizza with the grilled bread and enjoy your pizza sandwich.

Please NOTE :

  1. Check if your Pizza sauce already contains salt. Accordingly add salt to your veggies. The Pizza sauce I used had so much salt in it that I am glad I didnt add any salt at all!
  2. My Oven provides me a setting in which only the top filament gets heated in the oven. In dishes where the base is already cooked and only the top coat needs to be cooked ( like our toastizzas ) this mode should be used.
