Calling this french bread pizza might be a little stretch as mine are made on a loaf of healthy flax bread, but you can make yours on french bread if you want to! It’s going to taste just as good either way. In fact, you could make pizza on a pita, or a tortilla, or an english muffin, or a bagel. Heck, you could probably make pizza nachos. The moral of the story is, if you’re trying to empty your fridge or pantry, and there’s a mostly flat shaped carb in there, it can be turned into a pizza.
I got a little over zealous baking bread a few weeks ago and found myself with about 12 loaves on hand. I figured I’d just freeze ’em and work my way slowly through them one piece of toast at a time. When I was at the farmer’s market last week, I had a stroke of genius. Spring Hill cheese has a booth at our market, and as I was sampling their garlic jack cheese, the pizza inspiration struck me! I picked up a few extra veggies for toppings and headed home to create a masterpiece.
There’s not really a recipe for french bread pizza. I halved my loaf, toasted it under the broiler for a bit (I like mine extra, EXTRA toasted) then topped it with Gourmet Garden Italian seasoning blend, chopped veggies, and Spring Hill garlic jack cheese. A few more minutes under the broiler and dinner is served! This was a great meal for one even though The Hubs will never forgive me for eating pizza without him. Don’t worry honey! There’s still several loaves of bread in the freezer. You can make your own.
