I do the cooking and baking in our home but John does have a specialty.
Pizza Toast is a childhood memory for both him and for our children.
It is something his Great-Aunt Kathryn showed him how to make and he has made it through the years for us.
Pizza Toast is tart and tasty.
Sometimes when I am tired or not feeling well, John will make these and I just love nibbling on small bites and savoring the tangy flavor.
John takes his Pizza Toast preparation seriously and has agreed to share his recipe.
Begin with sliced bread (potato bread is my favorite)
Layer with a slice or two of American cheese
Squeeze on a large dollop of ketchup
Intently spread to edges.
John emphasis’s the most important ingredient is garlic powder that he sprinkles on liberally.
Next comes a generous twist of the pepper mill.
Add Italian seasoning. He likes to use a heavy hand.
Inspect perfect coverage of spices.
Transfer bread to toaster with rack in upper position.
Toast for 3-5 minutes until heated and the cheese is perfectly melted and bubbly.
Watch the toasting process attentively
When toasting reaches perfection, carefully remove Pizza Toast from oven.
Serve with potato chips and soda.
Savor both the unique taste and happy childhood memories
John’s Aunt Kathryn will be celebrating her 100th birthday this May.
