Passover is fast approaching (April 14-22), which means eight whole days of nonstop matzo eating. Because the typical matzo-with-jam combo can get a bit dull after it becomes your breakfast, lunch and dinner, here are nine bread-less ideas that won't leave you running bread-crazed to every bakery in town.

With this one, just pretend you're eating thin crust flatbread pizza. Either keep it simple by melting a layer of cheese and then spreading on marinara sauce, or get creative by topping with olives, spinach and red onions.
