We couldn’t resist! Since we’re talking about breakfast for dinner — we thought we’d better do dinner for breakfast too! This is quick and satisfying, and it makes a great after-school snack.

Hands-on time: 15   |    Total time: 15   |    Makes: 2 Servings


Measuring spoons
Butter knife
Baking sheet
Pot holder


2 slices whole-wheat or whole-grain bread, lightly toasted
2 tablespoons tomato paste
4 tablespoons shredded cheese (mozzarella, Monterey Jack, or cheddar)


Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your equipment and ingredients and put them on a counter.

  1. Preheat the broiler in your oven or toaster oven.
  2. Spread each piece of toast with 1 tablespoon tomato paste and top with 2 tablespoons cheese.
  3. Put the toast on the baking sheet (or on the pan for your toaster oven) and carefully put the baking sheet in the oven. Broil until the cheese is browned and bubbling, 1 to 2 minutes. Eat right away.

You can add any of your favorite pizza toppings! Try sliced mushrooms or bell  peppers, black olives, a sprinkle of garlic powder, or a few spinach leaves (put the spinach under the cheese). Or top with slivered basil leaves after it’s cooked.
