Genius invention today . DS aged 4 wanted pizza for lunch. I sometimes let him make them but it takes about 25 minutes by the time over has heated up and pizza cooked.
Today we didn't have pizza so I took a Warburton Thin, toasted it added stir in pasta sauce, a sprinkling of grated mozzarella and ham to eat side and microwaved for 30 seconds until the cheese bubbled. Done. 2 mins total and yummy.

Well I do something similar with muffins, put toppings on & in the oven for 12 mins x

Just boring bread toasted, spread with ketchup and grilled grated cheese is very popular with us.

YABU to pass off your obvious quasi cheese on toast as an "invention."

I go for a whole meal pitta bread toasted, then tomato purée, then kids add own toppings, normally corn, cheese, tomato, then grill.
Am I kidding myself that this is much healthier than pizza??

Microwaved bread? I'm afraid that sounds the very epitome of gopping to me.

We do it in with tortilla wraps, tomato puree and a few mins under the grill. Perfect.

I use tortilla or naan bread for a quick pizza for the kids

dontpokethebear Thu 10-Mar-16 20:16:09

I do it with wholemeal pitta too. I rub a garlic clove over the pitta, then tomato purée, mozzarella and whatever topping the kids fancy.
My favourite is olives and anchovies grin

Sounds alright to me.

We use plain naan bread, comes out well.

I make wrap pizzas. Use tortillas as the base, bung them in the oven for 10 minutes. Excellent!

arethereany I'm always confused by pizza being thought unhealthy as its ingredients are no different to say a cheese sandwich, pasta with cheese or cheese toastie so therefore ehy is pizza the one seen as unhealthy and its tomato aspect is possibly quite healthy confused?

We do have pizza a fair bit and prefer making it ourselves too and your wholemeal touch sounds very healthy! Ours have to be gluten free.

Bagels (preferably onion) toasted under the grill, spicy cheese, chopped pepper and chicken pieces added and put under the grill again. Yum!

bornwithaplasticspoon Thu 10-Mar-16 20:29:39

I've done this with bread, crumpets, wraps, pittas, miffins, bagels but the best by far is baguettes.

I'm hungry now

Paulat2112 Thu 10-Mar-16 20:30:48

Yep we love this smile Although i usually just use tomato puree. You can do it on a wrap, sandwich thin, pitta bread, muffin etc

TheAngelofNitshillRoad Thu 10-Mar-16 20:33:58

I object to "wrap pizza"

That is not pizza.

middlings Thu 10-Mar-16 20:34:51

muffins in our house - under the grill. Brilliant.

We do broccoli for hair, sweetcorn for eyes and red pepper for the smile. DD1 loves it!

UterusUterusGhali Thu 10-Mar-16 20:37:31

I make a toastie with cheese, tomato, Italian herbs & a chopped up pepperoni.

I really want one now!

CleanHankie Thu 10-Mar-16 20:38:48

Pizza using half a toasted roll was the most popular item for sale in the canteen when I was at school 20 years ago! Tomato puree, scattering of cheese, chopped mushrooms, sweetcorn and ham. Mmmm

FirstWeTakeManhattan Thu 10-Mar-16 20:40:59

Our easy pizza type thing is a quesadilla. Two wraps, fill with whatever you want and some form of suitable cheese, bake/dry fry until crisp.

HelsBels3000 Thu 10-Mar-16 20:41:16

Wrap pizza is how the Lean in 15 chap markets pizzas. I am not sold on this idea one bit.

bigbadbarry Thu 10-Mar-16 20:44:45

You can't beat a crumpet pizza (tomato sauce on first so it goes in the holes).
cleanhankie I read yours as half a toilet roll. Tasty.

chillycurtains Thu 10-Mar-16 20:51:43

I have to say I would never microwave ham. hmm I am not convinced by the microwave pizza at all. Sounds soggy but done under a grill maybe?

I microwave cheese on Crackers. Mate its amazing and so much less faff then cheese.on toast or a cheese toastie.
