Of course you may have made this on top of English muffins but this uses sandwich bread or garlic bread for an easy cheap meal. Give this one a whirl and then try our Texas Toast Sloppy Joes too. A great way to make dinnertime fun.

For larger versions you can follow our recipe above for making it on top of frozen garlic bread slices. The simplest and most common is using regular sandwich bread which we will share with you here. Just top and bake your Toast in the Oven until lightly browned with ooey gooey melted cheesiness. OMG YUM.

Now you could make this one singular slices of bread, but it won’t be nearly as good. This way is essentially making grilled cheese but with different toppings. With singular slices you would follow the same steps other than the bottom piece and extra cheese in the middle. Timing would decrease by half.

  • 6-8 slices bread or slightly defrosted Texas toast slices
    • 2 pieces per when making grilled cheese pizza toast
  • Spaghetti sauce, homemade pizza sauce or tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 16 oz mozzarella cheese thinly sliced
  • 24 slices pepperoni or other favorite pizza toppings

For garlic bread pizza you can make your own slices or use store bought boxed frozen. I like homemade slices personally but either is yet another quick and easy pepperoni pizza meal idea. Any way you “slice it” they should be placed on a baking sheet and on the middle rack.

Pizza Grilled Cheese

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut thin slices of the mozzarella cheese block until you have 4 slices per serving. Place the first piece of bread down on a sheet pan.

  • Place 4 slices of cheese surrounding the edges of the bread, leaving the center open.
  • Put the second slice of bread on top.
  • Press down the center of the bread with a spoon to create a well.
  • Fill a few tablespoons of the pizza sauce. Layer more slices of cheese across the top of the bread and sauce.
  • Top with pepperoni slices, toppings of choice and italian seasoning. Repeat to make the other pizza toast sandwiches.
  • Place in the oven for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and browned.

If you’d like, turn on broil for the last 3 or so minutes to get a bit more browned cheese on top. Remove from the oven and let cool for a couple minutes before slicing. Enjoy! This and our Pepperoni Pull Apart Pizza Bread are a few tweaks to the “old fashioned” slices. 😉

Pizza Toast Air Fryer

If you love this pizza idea but want to make smaller batches and not heat up the whole house you can! Follow our timing and temp in the grilled cheese in air fryer post but with double slices it will likely take a bit longer. Great thing is you can open and just check. Once melted you’re ready to enjoy.

Pizza on Toast Toppings

You can get creative with your choice of toppings to suit your taste. We share the simple below with pepperoni and cheese with your choice of some tomato, spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce with sliced pepperoni, mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of dried oregano or Italian seasoning. Here are some other delicious pizza topping ideas;

  1. Margherita Pizza Toast
    • Tomato sauce or marinara
    • Fresh mozzarella cheese
    • Fresh basil leaves
    • A drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil
    • Salt and black pepper to taste

Veggie Delight would include tomato sauce or pesto as the base with thinly sliced bell peppers (red, green, or yellow) and sliced red onions. You can use some slices of black olives and mushrooms with your cheese which can be dairy free as well.

Hawaiian-Inspired would need some spaghetti or tomato sauce or barbecue sauce works well too. Add thinly sliced ham or Canadian bacon with your tidbits or pineapple chunks with our shredded mozzarella cheese on the bottom or top of it all.

Pizza on Toast Sauce

BBQ Chicken Pizza would use a layer of barbecue sauce instead. Add precooked boiled shredded chicken on top of that with other things like; sliced red onion, chopped fresh cilantro and Monterey Jack cheese or cheddar cheese. You can make spicy buffalo chicken by whisking hot sauce in with the bbq.

To make any of these options, simply spread your choice of sauce on a piece of toasted bread or English muffin, add your desired toppings, and finish with cheese. Pop it under the broiler, in your oven or toaster oven until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown, usually just a few minutes. WAY cheaper than pizza delivery and so much cheaper too!
