Cheesy veggie toast pizza is a quick , instant and tasty variation of pizza recipe  made on griddle or tawa or pan. The bread base intimate the pizza base with veggie toppings. Of course the taste of cheesy veggie toast pizza is different than the original Veg pizza.

Cheesy veggie pizza toast is a delicious and easy-to-make dish that combines the flavors of pizza with the convenience of toast. This dish typically consists of a slice of toasted bread topped with a creamy sauce, vegetables, and cheese, then baked until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve this Cheesy Toast with chilled beverage like rooh afza, mango milkshake, mango lassi, paan shots or sweet basil drink.

The creamy sauce used on the toast can vary, but it is often a mixture of cream cheese, garlic, and herbs such as basil or oregano. The vegetables used can also vary depending on personal preference, but some popular choices include bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes.

This dish can be served as a quick and satisfying snack, a light lunch, or even as a party appetizer. It is a great way to use up leftover bread and vegetables and can be easily customized to suit individual tastes.

Creamy Veggie Toast Pizza on a Skillet, Pan or Tawa

This recipe is one of those snacks that you can make when you get pizza cravings. You just need a fresh loaf of bread, a really good pizza sauce (I would definitely recommend a homemade Pizza Sauce) and some veggies.

Bread: You can use any variety of bread to make bread pizza like whole wheat flour bread or white bread or multi-grain bread or brown bread or wheat sandwich bread. You can even use a couple of days old bread, but keep in mind that it hasn’t been expired.

Heating: Also do use a heavy tawa or pan. If you use a tawa or skillet that is not heavy, then the bread can get burnt from the bottom. Low heating is the key here as it slowly creates a nice golden crust on the base of the bread.

Base sauce: Generally pizza sauce is used to make a pizza. But in this recipe, you can use white sauce and even pesto sauce as the base sauce. The recipe uses pizza sauce. You can easily make the tomato pizza sauce at home. I have shared the recipe below – Pizza Sauce.

Toppings: For the toppings, you can use veggies of your choice. I always use onions, tomatoes and capsicum (bell pepper). I also like to add some olives. Sometimes I love to add steamed sweet corn too. You can even use baby corn, sautéed mushrooms or sautéed spinach.

Serving Suggestions: Serve bread pizza plain or accompanied with pizza sauce, tomato ketchup or  white cheese dip .

Expert Tips

Use a high-quality bread: Choose a hearty bread like sourdough or whole grain that can hold up to the toppings without getting soggy.

Pre-toast the bread: Before adding the toppings, lightly toast the bread in the oven or a toaster to give it a crispier texture.

Use fresh ingredients: Fresh vegetables and herbs will give the dish a brighter flavor and aroma than dried or frozen ingredients.

Experiment with different vegetable combinations: Try different vegetable combinations to find your favorite flavor profile. Some popular combinations include bell peppers and onions, mushrooms and spinach, or tomatoes and basil.

Don’t overload the toppings: Be careful not to overload the toppings as this can make the bread soggy and difficult to eat. A moderate amount of toppings will ensure that the bread remains crispy.

Use various vegetables: Variety of vegetables makes it nutritious & looks beautiful.

Use a flavorful cheese: Choose a cheese that melts well and has a strong flavor, like mozzarella or cheddar.

Add protein: If you want to add some protein to the dish, try adding sliced cooked chicken, ham, or tofu.

Serve immediately: Creamy veggie pizza toast is best served immediately after baking to ensure that the bread stays crispy and the cheese is melted.
