french bread pizzas
Here's what I did with my french bread.
And it was so nostalgic and yummy.
With homemade bread, sauce, and some really yummy cheese, this is a step up from the dreary frozen ones I'd eat in college. This is old school convenience dinner, but so. much. better.
French bread pizzas! Do it!
Old School French Bread Pizzas
1 loaf of Easy French Bread, sliced in half
olive oil, for brushing
my favorite pizza sauce ever
1 cup (or more) shredded cheese (I used a blend of fontina, mozzarella, and asiago)
about 15 slices turkey pepperoni
dried basil, for sprinkling
red pepper flakes, for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Brush bread halves with olive oil. Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove bread from oven and spread on a thin layer of pizza sauce. Sprinkle a light layer of cheese. Lay pepperoni slices, then sprinkle remaining cheese. Sprinkle basil and red pepper over the top.
Return to the oven and bake for 10 more minutes. After 10 minutes, turn the broiler on and broil for 1-2 minutes (depending on your broiler - keep an eye on it the whole time!). Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before slicing.
Hope y'all enjoy! Happy weekend. :)
