Nothing better than a steaming, delicious pizza on a cold,rainy night …. Except it’s too late to order one , you are certainly not going to waste your Saturday evening punching down a pizza dough and you can’t be bothered driving down to nearest pizza shop … Sigh ! It’s a tough tough life …Well , perhaps not pizza at its perfection , but there is a no brainer way to satisfy that pizza craving .

Here’s how :

Serves 1

You will need :

  • 2 slice white/wholemeal bread lightly buttered
  • 1 tsp pizza sauce ( optional )
  • 2 tbsp low fat tasty/velveeta/sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 6 cherry or mini roma tomatoes quartered (normal tomatoes may be used )
  • 2-3 olives sliced
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried mixed italian herbs
  • Crushed red chillies ( optional )

Preparation :

  • Pre-heat grill at 200 degrees.
  • Lightly butter 2 slices of white/whole meal bread.
  • Lightly spread pizza sauce on each slice.
  • Top the slices with quartered cherry tomatoes and olives .
  • Sprinkle a tablespoon of cheese,freshly cracked pepper , crushed chillies and Italian herbs on each slice .
  • Place under the grill for about 6-7 minutes until the bread it slightly toasted and the cheese has melted .
  • Splash a little tobasco on each slice and enjoy with some salad or a cup of soup.

Hot Tip :
As with normal pizza , the toppings can be tweaked to suit personal taste , you could use mushrooms , onions , garlic,capsicums , feta cheese , basil leaves ..cooked meat .. Be careful not too overload the bread slices , you don’t want to end up with soggy toast either .

Pizza , the no brainer way … What a life saver !
