Hannah’s Passover Staple: Matzah Pizza!

Even though this week is Passover and so bread and leavened products are off the menu, doesn’t mean that I have to miss my weekly pizza fix! The solution is easy: matzah pizza!

And, as you might expect, this is a super duper easy recipe for a delicious pizza treat.

Step 1: Choose your matzah. I would suggest whole wheat or regular as egg matzah can sometimes be sweet or slightly soft.

Step 2: Place your matzah on a sheet of tinfoil.

Step 3: Choose your pizza sauce, which can be either canned pizza sauce or jarred pasta sauce. Or even better, make your own homemade sauce by mixing canned crushed tomatoes with a smidge of olive oil and whatever herbs you like (oregano and garlic for instance) and then throwing all that in the blender. For tonight’s dinner, I used straight roasted crushed tomatoes from the can.

Step 4: Don’t use too much sauce! A light spread is all that is needed, otherwise the matzah will get soggy and break. On the other hand, make sure all the matzah holes are covered with at least a little sauce (otherwise the cheese will melt through the holes and stick to the tin foil which becomes a total mess).

Step 5: Sprinkle the sauce with toppings – whether that be garlic, oregano and crushed red pepper only, or also chopped mushrooms, other veggies or pepperoni.

Step 6: Cover the top of the matzah pizzas with shredded mozzarella. Again, don’t use too much because it will weigh down and break the matzah.

Step 7: Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted to your preferred doneness.

Step 8: Throw on some more crushed red pepper for extra spice and eat up!!!

  1. believe it or not, but this is what my daughter did yesterday. Only she did it in microwave, and she had two pieces of matzah with cheese in between, and then red sauce and cheese on top. Great minds think alike! 🙂
