Whether you're a busy parent looking for a kid-friendly dinner option or a college student seeking a budget-friendly snack, Bread Pizza has got you covered. Let's dive into this easy and delicious homemade bread pizza recipe.

Ingredients: for the pizza base:

  • 4-5 slices of your favorite bread (White, Whole Wheat, or Multigrain)
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional for added heat)
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
 For the toppings (customize to your liking):

  • Bell peppers
  • Onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Paneer
  • Mushrooms
  • Fresh basil leaves.


  • Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 355°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will ensure your bread pizza cooks evenly and doesn't stick to the sheet.
  • Prepare the bread slices: Lay out your bread slices on the prepared baking sheet. If you prefer a crispy base, lightly toast the bread in the oven for about 2-3 minutes before adding toppings.
  • Apply the pizza sauce: Using a spoon, spread a generous layer of pizza sauce onto each bread slice. Leave a small border around the edges for a crispy crust.
  • Add the cheese: Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce. The cheese is the glue that holds your toppings together and gives your bread pizza that classic pizza flavor. 
  • Customize with toppings: Get creative with your toppings! Add sliced bell peppers, onions, black olives, mushrooms, or any of your favorite pizza ingredients. Remember to distribute them evenly across the bread slices.  
  • Season it up: Sprinkle dried oregano, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes (if you like it spicy) over the toppings. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Bake to perfection: Place the baking sheet with your prepared bread pizzas in the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.  
  • Garnish and serve: Remove your bread pizzas from the oven and let them cool for a minute. Garnish with fresh basil leaves for an extra burst of flavor.   
  • Slice and enjoy: Use a sharp knife or a pizza cutter to slice your bread pizzas into manageable pieces. Serve them hot and savor the homemade goodness!
