Looking for a delightful snack or a crowd-pleasing party starter? Look no further! Our Bread Pizza recipe is the perfect blend of simplicity and flavor, allowing you to whip up a mouthwatering treat in no time. Whether you prefer the stovetop, oven, or air fryer method, we’ve got you covered.


For the Pizza Base:

  • 4 slices of bread
  • 1 teaspoon of oil for greasing the pan


  • 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce (or tomato sauce)
  • ½ to ¾ cup of grated cheese (mozzarella or pizza cheese)
  • ½ teaspoon of Italian herbs or oregano
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon of red chili flakes
  • 1 medium onion, cubed and layers separated
  • ½ cup of bell pepper (capsicum), cubed
  • 1 small tomato, firm, deseeded, and cubed (optional)
  • 10 olives, as desired (optional)


To ensure a smooth cooking process, follow these simple preparation steps:

  1. Cube the onions and separate the layers.
  2. Deseed the tomatoes and bell pepper, then cube them.
  3. Grate the cheese and keep it ready.

How to Make Bread Pizza on Stovetop

  1. Grease a pan/griddle with 1 tsp oil. Toast the bread lightly on one side. Switch off the heat.
  2. Remove the bread to a board or tray, with the crisp side facing up (optional but recommended for a firmer base).
  3. Smear pizza sauce thinly as desired.
  4. Layer onions, bell pepper, and tomatoes. Grate and layer cheese, followed by herbs and chili flakes. Add olives if available.
  5. Place the bread on the griddle, cover the pan, and toast on low to medium heat.
  6. Toast until the cheese melts, checking to avoid burning the bread.

Making Bread Pizza in the Oven

  1. Arrange the bread slices on a baking tray and preheat the oven to 430°F or 220°C.
  2. Spread pizza sauce over the bread, then layer onions, capsicum, and tomatoes. Grate and layer cheese, and sprinkle herbs and chili flakes. Add olives.
  3. Place the tray in a preheated oven on the middle rack. Bake/grill for 8 minutes at 430°F or 220°C, adjusting the time as needed. The result: partially grilled veggies and golden melted cheese. Serve hot as a snack or breakfast.

In the Air Fryer

  1. Smear sauce over the bread and place it in the air fryer basket. Add toppings with cheese. Air fry at 180°C or 350°F for 5 to 6 minutes or until golden and crisp. Without preheating, it takes up to 7 to 8 minutes.


DIY Pizza Sauce:

  • 250 grams of tomatoes (3 medium), pureed or deseeded & chopped
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon of red chili flakes (adjust to taste)
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon of black pepper, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon of oil (preferably olive oil)
  • 1 small onion (optional), finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • ½ to ¾ teaspoon of mixed Italian herbs
