    We make pizza on all forms of bread around here too! French bread is very good, as is bagel! Kaylin still hasn’t climbed out of her crib…I’m thinking we may end up just switching her to a bed anyway

    This is awesome! I used to love those frozen French bread pizzas when I was a kid. I haven’t had one in years (maybe decades), and now I’m craving one. I’m sure homemade is a million times better!

    I was SUCH a sucker for those Stouffer French Bread pizzas growing up–even though part of it would inevitably always have freezer burn and be hard as a rock. It was the one frozen meal that I convinced my mom to get for me every once and a while.

    This homemade version looks so good Maria!!

  27. marla — January 29, 2014 @ 9:15 am

    This looks great Maria & I love hope easy it is :)

  28. Emily @ Life on Food — January 29, 2014 @ 6:15 pm
