In order to make pepperoni pizza toast you will want the following ingredients.
Marinara Sauce: When I don’t have marinara sauce on hand– I’ve opened up a can of plain tomato sauce. It’s worked just fine.
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese: There’s really no going around this ingredient it really is a staple to the recipe. Of course you can get fancy and also add in a little Pecorrino Romano or grated Parmesan cheese. The sky is the limit as long as it’s in the Italian cheese family.
Kitchen Tools Needed
Making pizza toast is very easy and requires very few kitchen accessories.
Toaster oven: I happen to own a toaster oven. It sits on my countertop and it’s one of my essential countertop appliances that I use on a daily basis. However, if you don’t own a toaster oven no worries. All you need is a traditional oven. Just know you will want to watch your bread as it toast in the oven for the first portion of this recipe. Make sure it doesn’t over toast.
Small baking sheet: You will want a small baking sheet for the second step of the cooking process.
Aluminum foil: I like to use aluminum foil on my baking sheet for easy cleanup!
Pot holders: Once your pizza toast is done baking you will need potholders to pull out the scorching hot baking sheet.
Measuring Spoons: If you like to be precise measuring ingredients grab a tablespoon to measure out the sauce and cheese. I always recommend you measure exactly to the recipe on the first try and then after you’ve tried the recipe you can feel free to eyeball it!
