As a kid, we all remember groaning at having to eat yet another boring matzo peanut butter and jelly sandwhich by the middle of Pesach.

Here’s a recipe that is not only easy, it’s delicious and fun for the whole mishpacha! Get creative with your favorite sauce, cheese and all the toppings you love to throw on a pizza.

A note about keeping your matzo pizza from getting soggy: Layer the matzo with cheese, bake it for a couple of minutes, and then add your sauce and toppings. This ensures a crispy, delicious matzo pizza every time!
