Upside Down Pizza Toast is a delicious toast with pizza flavours and makes a lovely filling snack .
When Valli announced the Upside Down Theme , I picked it without giving it a thought , then realised that there were so many cakes which fitted the theme . Upside Down Pineapple Cake topped the list , but I was looking for at least one savoury dish .
The Upside Down Pizza Toast is inspired by one of those quick videos on FB where they use egg to make this toast . Since I do not use eggs the vegetarian option was to use chickpea flour batter . I was not happy with the pictures and wanted to re do , but with my health conditions it’s not possible , so even though I know it’s not justice to the recipe , I am posting it . Those of you who eat eggs can make the toast by adding an egg over the onion tomato mix .
The toast is simple and quick and has a mild flavour of pizza and hence I named it Upside Down Pizza Toast . I have some pics for reference , hope you enjoy this toast which can make a great lunch box recipe too .
