How to make Japanese Pizza Toast:

1) Prepare all ingredients

Preheat the oven to 200°C with both upper and lower heat.

Peel, halve, and thinly slice the onion. Wash, deseed, and thinly slice the red bell pepper.

(2) Top the Pizza Toast

Place the 4 slices of Shokupan on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and evenly spread 1 tablespoon of ketchup on each slice.

Evenly distribute the thinly sliced onions and red bell pepper strips on the bread slices.

Generously sprinkle each slice with 2 tablespoons of pizza cheese.

(3) Bake the Pizza Toast

Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake until the cheese is melted and lightly golden brown. This takes about 5 – 8 minutes.

Remove the Japanese Pizza Toast from the oven, let it cool briefly, and optionally enjoy it with Sriracha Hot Sauce.

Some Recipe Tips:

Bread Choice: Use high-quality Japanese Shokupan or a soft milk bread to achieve the best texture and flavor. I used thick slices, but feel free to choose your preferred slice thickness. Feel free to check out my Shokupan Recipe if you’re interested in baking it yourself.

Ketchup Variations: Experiment with different types of ketchup, such as spicy ketchup or tomato sauce, to add extra flavor to the toast.

Cheese Blend: Mix different types of cheese like mozzarella, cheddar, or gouda for a richer variety of flavors.

Additional Toppings: Add extra toppings you enjoy, such as ham, mushrooms, or olives, to customize the pizza toast to your liking.

Keep an Eye on Baking Time: Pay attention during baking to ensure the cheese melts and turns lightly golden brown. The exact baking time may vary depending on the oven, so keep an eye on it.
