Jacob and I would eat about 2 pieces each with a big side salad. This all depends on you and your bread of choice. Double or triple this recipe if you’re cooking for a crowd.

Leftovers heat up perfectly and you can even freeze a few of these for an easy weekday lunch or dinner.

A spritz of olive oil definitely doesn’t hurt and will make your bread even more golden and decadent. If you know you know. You do you!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

This recipe is so nostalgic for so many reasons. The first time I ever had corn and green olives on a pizza was the first time I ever visited Israel when I was 15 years old. We ordered delivery at my aunts house and these toppings were standard. Oh the emo teenage years when I thought my life sucked. But in actuality I was traveling the most beautiful country, meeting my relatives, and learning so much about my culture – all on someone else’s dime without a worry in the world.

But, this recipe is even more nostalgic because I was making this pizza toast a few nights a week for comfort when the pandemic first hit. You know, back when we thought we were all gonna die if we left the house. Well not only that but I was also stuck at home with a newborn and a potty training toddler all day by myself. After we’d put the kids to sleep, Jacob and I would come downstairs, sit on the couch, and eat this by candlelight. We would daydream about buying a cabin in Lake Arrowhead and talk about what we would do with 20 million dollars. It was the worst of times and it was the best of times.
