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!

INGREDIENTS:

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

DIRECTIONS:

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.
