We love having fast meals at our house for those busy nights after sports, homework, and errand running, and this is a favorite. French bread pizza is so easy to make it is almost criminal, and with the right toppings, it can taste like a million bucks.
Feel free to make your own french bread if you want, I just bought mine at Sam’s Club. Two large loaves are about $3, making this a low cost meal as well. I had some leftover BBQ shredded chicken from BBQ chicken burritos, so I used that, but you can just grill up a breast, shred it, and toss it in your favorite BBQ sauce, a little chicken goes a long way on a pizza. I then cooked up some garlic, onions, and sweet baby peppers. I love carmelized onions on pizza! Yummy! I used spaghetti sauce from a jar (Prego Heart Smart), and a 3 cheese blend (also from Sam’s Club), put on some canned pineapple because my kids love it, and whala, done!
Just look at the cheesy goodness…
Of course, you can make french bread pizza with whatever toppings you like. When I cut my loaf in half I used one side to do a kid pizza with just cheese and pineapple (that is what they like!) and then did the adult version on the other side. The cooking time varied a little based on how many toppings were included. When I pulled it out of the oven I topped it with some fresh green onion for a little color and extra flavor.
This is a great option for pizza night, to use up leftovers, or when you are in a hurry. Sometimes when I have odds and ends vegetables I throw one together, and we enjoy every bite! What are your favorite pizza toppings?
