Easy meal creations are a cook’s best friend, especially when it comes to making a meal or bite size snack the entire family can enjoy. Pizza has always been a mealtime favorite but now it has a lighter version. The pizza bite lets you create fun, mini-size snacks without having to satisfy everyone’s topping preference in one pie.
Pizza bites are a great way to give your family options where they can completely design their own meal. Individual pizza bites let you cater to everyone’s needs, especially for family members with food allergies. By using Old London’s Melba Toast, you can create fast, kid friendly pizza bites in less than 10 minutes.
Step one: Choose your Melba Toast flavor and get started building the perfect pizza pie. Old London has over 8 varieties of Melba Toast flavors that pair perfectly with pizza ingredients. Some wonderful choices include Rosemary & Olive Oil, Ancient Grains, Wheat, Salt Free Whole Grain, Sesame, or classic. Old London Melba Snacks provide the perfect bite size for smaller mouths and tummies. With varieties that include Whole Grain, White Cheddar, Roasted Garlic and Sea Salt, making pizza just got a little more flavorful.
Step Two: Choose your sauce. Pizza sauces are more versatile now than ever before. You can give you family and friends the option of a few different sauces. Try traditional marinara, Alfredo or “white pizza” sauce, and pesto. All of these great flavors will soak into the Melba Toast and provide your pizza bite with big flavor.
Step Three: Choose your toppings. Pizza bites can be topped with the same ingredients you would find on a regular sized pizza. Set out a buffet style toppings area and let your family pick and choose their favorites. Toppings can be simple and classic or unique. It’s all up to your specific tastes. If you are working with a larger group as part of a cooking project, make sure you have toppings that everyone will enjoy. Some great toppings include pepperoni, sausage, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, olives, pineapple and onion. Just remember that you won’t need quite as many toppings as you think because the bite size pizza is a much smaller surface area to cover.
Step Four: Add the cheese. Because of their smaller size, you may be better off choosing your favorite pizza cheese in block form rather than shredded. Placing a thin slice of mozzarella or Monterrey cheese directly on top of your pizza bite will help keep the cheese in place as it goes into the oven. Pizza bites can be cooked in a 400 degree oven for about 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted.
You are now ready to bite into the crispness of Old London’s Melba Toast or Snacks and savor the taste of your pizza creation. Mix and match with your co-creators to try new tastes. You’re sure to love this inventive and simple pizza alternative.
