Pizza

This super simple matzo recipe is fun for kids to assemble and eat during Passover! It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare, and kids love the saucy, cheesy goodness of a fresh-from-the-oven “pizza.”

Ingredients

For the pizza:

  • 1 sheet of matzo
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella, Cheddar, or jack cheese (or a combination of cheeses)

Passover-friendly toppings (Pick and choose to your liking):

  • Sliced tomatoes or cherry tomatoes
  • Sliced olives
  • Sliced mushrooms
  • Sliced artichoke hearts
  • Sliced onions
  • Fresh chopped basil
  • Spinach leaves
  • Roasted red peppers
  • Red chili pepper flakes
  • Jalapeno peppers
  • Oregano or rosemary

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place matzo sheet on foil-lined baking sheet. Spread matzo with the tomato sauce, and then sprinkle it evenly with the cheese. Place any toppings you like from the list above evenly across the top of the cheese.

Bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes until the cheese melts. Take out of the oven and serve. You can slice the matzo into 4 triangles to make for easier eating, if you’d like.

Pizza Shopping Tip

Pressed for time on a busy weeknight, but don't want to settle for frozen pizza? Start with ready-made pizza crusts. You'll still be able to add your own sauce and fresh ingredients for a homemade taste.

Pizza Cooking Tip

If you're attempting to make your own dough, make sure to keep your work surface lightly dusted with flour, or the dough may stick.
