Mini Presentation: Craving homemade pizza but short on time and budget? Try these Quick and Easy French Bread Pizzas. They’re simple, affordable, and ready in no time!
1 French bread loaf from the deli (approx. $1)
Shredded cheese (your choice)
Toppings of your choice (e.g., pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms)
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
Slice the French bread loaf in half lengthwise.
Spread a layer of butter on the cut sides of the bread and sprinkle with garlic powder for extra flavor.
Place the bread halves on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 3-5 minutes, or until they are lightly toasted. This step helps prevent the bread from becoming soggy when you add the toppings.
Remove the bread from the oven and spread a generous amount of pizza sauce on each half.
Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheese on top of the sauce. You can use mozzarella, cheddar, or your favorite cheese.
Add your choice of pizza toppings. Get creative with pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, or any other toppings you love.
Place the topped bread halves back in the oven and bake for 11-13 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the edges are golden brown.
Remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before slicing.
These Quick and Easy French Bread Pizzas are perfect for a busy weeknight dinner or a fun and affordable homemade pizza night with family or friends. Enjoy your delicious homemade pizzas! 🍕😋
