If I ever ask my kids what I want for dinner, I know exactly what they’re going to say. PIZZA! We usually end up making homemade pizza, ordering pizza or doing something different like pizza chicken roll ups.

MY OTHER RECIPES

We also love to make homemade french bread at least once a month and then use the extra loaf to make pizza boats french bread (as my kids like to call them). The best part about them, is you can customize each half (or cut them the loaf into 4) to make everyone happy. I like to make one half caprese style and half cheese/pepperoni. My kids love putting their own sauce and cheese on. You could even got more creative and use a white or pesto sauce. So many options. YUM!

Make your own french bread pizza

First, cut the loaf of french bread in half. Spread the butter on top of the bread and then sprinkle the garlic powder on top. Bake for 3-5 minutes or until lightly toasted.

Top with your favorite pizza sauce (I love the DeLallo brand or my homemade sauce here), cheese and your favorite toppings. Then bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. Now I know you can buy these in the frozen freezer section (I definitely have before), but it is so much more delicious to make your own french bread pizza.

  • 1 loaf french bread
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, softened

  • 1-2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

For the carpese pizza I like to slice the tomatoes and bake them in the oven for 5-10 minutes with salt and pepper on top before adding them to the pizza. Then once the pizza comes out, I like to drizzle with a balsamic glaze and sprinkle fresh basil on top.

    This is one of my absolute favorite recipes. It’s easy to make, and everyone can add their favorite toppings. French bread pizzas remind me of being a teenager and my grandmother would stock her freezer with Red Baron French bread pizzas. I’d always have those at her house. Pinned this to my pizza board. Love the idea of making a margarita pizza. Yum! So good! :)
