Goldfish Bread Pizza

This is one for the kids. My son is going to full time school nowadays and I am trying to find innovative things which look good and also taste good for him. We can have this anytime,..my son loved it.

I got this bread in the bread aisle in our local grocery store. Made this pizza and sent this in my son’s lunch box, he loved it

You can make sandwich too. The fish shape for the bread looks cute & appealing to the little ones. The one I bought it was of Pepperidge Farm brand. I am not sure if it is available in other brands.
