Matzo Pizza

Whether you are celebrating the final day of Passover today, or just love a good thin crust pizza – Matzo can serve as the perfect base for a crispy, crunchy crust. However there is a secret. In order to make sure you don’t end up with a soggy mess, you need to create a barrier between the sauce and the Matzo. And the perfect way to do that is with cheese. Layer the Matzo with cheese, bake it for a couple of minutes, and then add your sauce and toppings. This leads to a crispy, delicious Matzo pizza every time.

A quick note about the photo. This pizza includes a wheat free vegetarian crumble as a topping. Depending on your diet, you can choose whatever toppings work for your needs.

    If you get 4 servings from 2 matzohs, wouldn’t each serving be half a matzoh?
