French Bread Pizzas

>> Friday, August 12, 2011

This is about the quickest, easiest way to enjoy a pizza. It also contains cheap and easy-to find ingredients. These factors together make it a perfect recipe for our daughters who are out on their own, and hopefully not starving because they don't have any twenty-something-friendly recipes. Below the basic recipe is a bunch of ideas on how to jazz them up if you're not 20 or prefer something more interesting. These pizzas, cut into small pieces, also make a quick and easy appetizer.

1 24-inch french bread loaf
1 10-oz. can of spaghetti or pizza sauce
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese (and/or any other cheese you like)
Garlic salt
1 tsp. dried or fresh oregano

  1. Turn on the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut the bread loaf in half. Cut each half lengthwise down the middle so you have 4 pieces. 
  3. Put the bread slices on a baking sheet.
  4. Spread the sauce on the cut surface of each quarter.
  5. Sprinkle the bread with mozzarella cheese.
  6. Sprinkle the garlic salt and oregano over the pizzas.(Note: any cheese that lands on the pan instead of on the bread is likely to burn, so scoop it up and put it back on the bread.)
  7. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the bread is warm.
Serves 2-4 people.

  • After spreading the sauce, add thin slices of tomato to the bread. Top with grated parmesan cheese and garlic salt before baking.
  • Add pepperoni slices, cooked Italian sausage bits, chopped olives, mushroom slices, green pepper, pineapple bits, ham or bacon, if desired. Note that olives and meat will make the pizza more salty so you might want to go with plain garlic powder rather than garlic salt.
  • Sprinkle the bread with red pepper flakes, chopped fresh basil, or parmesan cheese before cooking.
