Depending on what you have in your fridge or pantry, this is a quick snack or starter for when you crave a pizza flavour but have none of the dough and have only white bread.

Preparation 10 mins, Cooking approx 15-20 mins

  • Sliced bread, to taste
  • Tomato sauce, to taste
  • Capers, a handful
  • Dried oregano, a handful
  • Fresh basil, a few leaves
  • A pinch of salt
  • Ham if you have it
  • A few slices of cheese, Mozzarella or whatever you have
  • EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a drizzle


We did not cut the crust off the bread slices, we liked the crispy effect of the edges.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

On a parchment paper-lined baking tray, brush the bread slices with a little EVOO.

Toast them in the oven for a couple of minutes, then remove them, without turning off the oven.

Put tomato sauce in a bowl and season with a pinch of salt, oregano, capers and a little oil. You can also put some minced garlic so you’ll get a Marinara Style-Sauce.

Garnish the bread slices with the seasoned tomato sauce, on others add the mozzarella slices, bake again for a further 8-10 minutes.

Garnish with ham and basil leaves.
