Homemade pizza is loads of fun to make, but sometimes making the pizza dough, or finding just the right store bought one, is a pain in the buns. That’s why I love to make French bread pizzas!
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
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
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.
