French Toast’s savoury side

Each bite of this Pizza Stuffed French Toast will give you the gooey taste of pizza in a sandwich. The egg and cheese mixture adds great flavour that kicks up a classic.

1/3 cup (80 mL) pizza sauce

35 slices pepperoni

Half green pepper, thinly sliced

3 mushrooms, thinly sliced (optional)

10 slices mozzarella

4 eggs

1/3 cup (80 mL) milk

2 tbsp (30 mL) freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano leaves

Pinch each salt and pepper

1 tbsp (15 mL) butter


1. Lay bread slices on work surface and spread with pizza sauce. Top half with 1 slice of the mozzarella, then pepperoni, pepper and mushrooms, if using. Place remaining cheese on top. Top with remaining bread slices; set aside.

2. In shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, cheese, oregano, salt and pepper. Dip sandwiches into egg mixture, turning to soak up the egg mixture.
