With Passover happening next month you’re going to see a lot more matzah on grocery store shelves. Matzah isn’t just for eating during a seder, though, it’s always an amazing canvas for homemade nut-free Nutella, combined to make Matzah Ball Soup, mixed into eggs for Cinnamon Apple Matzah Brei or to coat Chicken Tenders. Every and I mean every time I offer the kids matzah they get incredibly excited. It’s crispy, crunchy and since it’s made without salt you can add any kind of spread or topping on to it.
Run out of pizza dough, english muffins or bagels? Grab a box of matzah to make these irresistible Matzah Pizzas. Kenya and Chloe love them on Friday nights (our usual pizza movie nights) simply topped with red sauce and tons of mozzarella cheese, but you can also mix it up and top them with a spread of pesto, toppings like pepperoni, mushrooms or bell peppers or any kind of cheese you’ve got on hand.
Whether you use whole wheat, white or even gluten free matzah as the base for these pizzas I guarantee they’ll be a family friendly success!
