Bread Pizza – 2 Ways (On a Skillet or Tawa & In an Oven)

Jump to RecipeVideo

Bread Pizza is a quick, instant and tasty variation of pizza recipe made on griddle or tawa or pan. The bread base mimics the pizza base with veggie toppings. Of course the taste of bread pizza is different than the original Veg Pizza. In this post I am sharing two super easy ways to make bread pizza.

  1. Bread Pizza made on a skillet, pan or tawa (with pizza sauce)
  2. Veggie Bread Pizza made in the oven (without pizza sauce)

The recipes are easy to make for a brunch or evening snack. In fact you can easily double or triple the recipes and make for small get togethers or parties.

Bread Pizza on a Skillet, Pan or Tawa

This recipe is one of those snacks that you can make when you get pizza cravings. You just need a fresh loaf of bread, a really good pizza sauce (I would definitely recommend a Homemade Pizza Sauce) and some veggies.

Bread: You can use any variety of bread to make bread pizza like whole wheat flour bread or white bread or multi-grain bread or brown bread or wheat sandwich bread. You can even use a couple of days old bread.

Heating: Also do use a heavy tawa or pan. If you use a tawa or skillet that is not heavy, then the bread can get burnt from the bottom. Low heating is the key here as it slowly creates a nice golden crust on the base of the bread.

Base sauce: Generally pizza sauce is used to make a pizza. But in this recipe, you can use white sauce and even pesto sauce as the base sauce. The recipe uses pizza sauce. You can easily make the tomato pizza sauce at home. I have shared the recipe here – Pizza Sauce.

Toppings: For the toppings, you can use veggies of your choice. I always stick to onions, tomatoes and capsicum (bell pepper). I also like to add some olives. Sometimes I add steamed sweet corn too. You can even use baby corn, sautéed mushrooms or sautéed spinach.

Serving Suggestions: Serve bread pizza plain or accompanied with pizza sauce or tomato ketchup.

Recipe 2 – Veggie Bread Pizza in Oven

This is also a quick and easy recipe to make delicious vegetable bread pizza.

When you have leftover bread slices, there are many snacks you can make from them. This recipe is one of them.

The recipe is fairly easy to prepare and makes for a healthy snack if you use wheat flour bread or brown bread. It took me about 30 minutes to make these crisp veg bread pizza. The bread slices are toasted twice. So when the bread slices are getting toasted initially, you can chop the veggies and prepare the toppings.

For this recipe, you don’t need ready pizza sauce. But if you have, then you can use it.

Veggie bread pizza can be had plain or with tomato ketchup. The recipe also makes for a good snack or brunch. Skip the red chili flakes while serving to small kids.

How to make Veggie Bread Pizza in Oven

1. Slice the bread into two and place them in a baking tray. You can also cover the tray with aluminium foil and place the bread slices on it. Toast the bread in a preheated oven at 200 degrees celsius for about 5 to 7 minutes or more, till they are lightly toasted and golden. You can also easily toast the bread slices in an electric toaster or on a tawa or skillet. However, remember they have to be lightly toasted and browned as we will be baking them again in the oven for the cheese to melt.

2. Heat 1 tablespoons olive oil in a pan.

11. Sprinkle grated cheese. Here I used amul brand processed cheese and it does not melt. But will get golden and browned. For a melted and gooey option, better to add cheddar cheese. For a stringy melted option, add mozzarella cheese.
