French Bread Pizza

Josh was begging for pizza AGAIN, he never gets sick of it. I was not in a creative or cooking mood, so I let him take charge in the kitchen.

He decided to make French Bread Pizza. This has to be the easiest meal ever! We bought a loaf of french bread from our local market. I recommend buying a big fat loaf instead of a little french baguette. The baguettes are a little too crusty and chewy for pizza!

We cut the loaf in half lengthwise and then into four portions. We tore some of the bread out of the middle so the pizza wouldn’t be too bready! Then we toasted them under the broiler for a couple of minutes. While the bread was still warm, we took a fresh garlic clove and rubbed the bread down. I love this trick. It really add

s a lot of garlic flavor.

Luckily, we had leftover homemade pizza sauce in the freezer, so we used that for the first layer. Josh piled on the pepperoni for his pizza, but I stuck with lots of fresh veggies. We topped the bread with some mozzarella cheese too!! We baked them in the oven for about 15 minutes!

I actually liked this meal. It was quick and easy…and I liked the nice crunch of the bread. It was fun trying a different type of pizza!

And there’s a great place called The Lighthouse on one of the beaches (can’t remember which one) where you can get these great waffle ice cream sandwiches. I dream about them.

  4. Maria-It looks like the bag you are giving away is really popular because there are a lot of comments. Great idea!!! By the way you are one of my cooking sources when I need a recipe. When is the restaurant coming?

    So for my favorite vacation spot…There are many by us but our favorite is Catalina Island. There is swimming, boating, hiking, whale watching, golfing, a marathon occurs there, horseback riding, and you can see some of the most protected buffalo on the island.

  5. I love Florida….I have been to Paris, New York, Tampa, Miami, Malaysia(recently), China, Hong Kong, and ofcourse India (home country), but I love Florida…it gave me my hub! We met there. (blush blush)….

    I love, love, love to travel. My favorite getaway is St. Thomas, USVI…shopping, beach, sites, culture, variety. The most beautiful place has been Lucerne, Switzerland.

    Thanks again for the wonderful recipes. The one pot choc chip cookies are fab out of the freezer, too.

  8. My dream holiday destination would be the Maldives!! But if I had to pick somewhere I have been, it would be Spain. You can’t beat the culture, food, weather and history.
