French Bread Pizzas
Submitted by Nikki Slater
These are quick and easy to make for lunch. I will make four at a time and freeze the other three to eat at a later date (pizza sauce and cheese only, I’ll add the toppings when I’m ready to re-heat.)
And yes, I accidentally took a bite of the pizza before I went to take a photo. Oops!
1 whole loaf French bread
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup pizza sauce, divided
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
Your desired toppings (see this recipe for many ideas)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Slice bread in half lengthwise and place on a large baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Brush cut side of each loaf with a little olive oil. Bake for 5-6 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Spread 1/4 cup pizza sauce on each bread half, then top each with 1/4 cup cheese. Add desired toppings. Evenly sprinkle bread halves with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is heated through.
