Rae and I were at it again at temple this morning, showing the high-schoolers some Passover recipes. First we stirred up a batch of granola, and then, while the granola was in the oven, we made some matzo pizzas.

Matzo makes a pretty terrific pizza crust!

Its easy to customize these single-serving pizzas.
