Guiltless Bread Pizza
Upgrade your leftover loaves of bread into an instant, tasty, and guiltless variation of pizza. All you need is to have a few ingredients and your guiltlessly tasty snack is ready. Here is how to make it:
- 6 large wheat bread or multi grain bread (preferred)
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Toppings For Bread Pizza
- 1 medium onion, cubed
- 1 medium bell pepper, cubed
- 1 medium tomato, cubed (optional)
- 5 pieces Mekeni GoLite Chicken Longanisa, steamed and cubed
- 1 to 1 1/4 cups grated mozzarella cheese or quick melt cheese
- pepper and chili flakes to taste
- Start by lightly toasting the bread on your pan. Use oil as needed.
- Arrange your pizza bread by spreading some pizza sauce on the lightly toasted side of the bread while still on the pan. Top it with onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, other optional vegetables like basil and olives, and the gluten-free Mekeni GoLite Chicken Longanisa pieces. Remember to keep the flame to its lowest to not burn your bread pizza.
- Add some crushed black pepper depending on your taste.
- Top your bread pizza with grated mozzarella cheese or any quick-melt cheese that you have. Place a lid on the bread pizza and cook until the cheese melts and the bread is toasted.
- Remove the piece with a spatula and place it on a serving plate. Sprinkle some red chili flakes or oregano if you want.
- Serve while it is hot.
