Bunny's Studenty Toasty Pizza

This recipe has reminded me of the fact that when I was at university I thought it was genuinely witty that we had a sign above the toaster in our student flat that bore the legend ‘Make Toast, Not War’… .

“Thought you might like this uber easy recipe (using the word loosely!). It requires no doughmaking, ideal for lazy types like me. This is how we used to make pizza at uni when we’d spent all our food money on beer ;-)

Toast Pizza (aka Cheese on toast with vegetables)

1 slice of bread
Tomato puree
Cheese of choice

Lightly toast your bread so the bottom won’t be soggy. Spread a thin layer of tomato puree over the top (you can make it yourself, but we use Organic Tomato Puree from Waitrose – no added salt, hurrah). Cover with cheese – The Weeble is partial to mozzarella and cheddar. Bung under the grill until the cheese is melted and bubbling. ALLOW TO COOL! Molten cheese has thermonuclear properties!

If you are like me and a bit slapdash with the cheese, you’ll probably have burnt crusts, so cut those off. Cut your “pizza” into strips (for bubbas; leave whole for older children and mummies) and serve! Weebs really likes this, especially the way the mozzarella can be made to stretch for miles when cool and rubbery.

It occurs to me that if you substitute another veg puree for the tomato, that would use up some of that leftover puree we all seem to have… and also sneak in some vegetables should you need to do so!

We’re going to try it again tomorrow with some small bits of cooked chicken embedded in the cheese.”

    I think that we waited with our daughter who is now 2.5 and a much better eater I might add lol!! I think she was about 9-10 months before we gave her dairy or older. But she would eat pureed and loved it, and now our son he would gag and puke and cry I was getting worried but after seeing this I’m so amazed we tried toast finger and avocodo at lunch and it was amazing and went well I can’t wait too see what dinner brings.
    Thanks so much!
