  1. 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

  2. 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!!
