So Simple Mini Pesto Pizzas

Make weeknight meals a snap with these quick-bake toaster oven pizzas. Use sandwich things for crispy crusts and if you don't have fresh basil, feel free to substitute dried oregano.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 5 mins
Yield: 4 mini pizzas to serve 2


  • 2 sandwich thins
  • 3 TB prepared pesto
  • 2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced (~ ½ cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 TB chopped fresh basil


Split sandwich thins and place cut-side up on work surface. Spread pesto evenly across each. Top with cheese and tomato. Season with garlic salt. Place pizzas directly on the rack of a toaster oven. Bake for 5-7mins or until cheese melts and bottom is crispy. Garnish with basil and serve.


Tip: These mini pizzas can also be prepared in a conventional oven.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees and cook pizzas on a resting rack over a foil lined baking sheet.
