Great tasting French bread pizza perfect for that quick evening meal or a party. And at 20 minutes it’s faster than a speeding pizza dude.
We all need a fast meal at times, but there is no law against it tasting great. First, you need a nice bread. This will be half the taste and bland white bread just won’t do. You need to know your baker.
Next sauce. For my cooking for two meal, I used about 1/2 cup of pre-made pizza sauce. If you’re doing a large amount for a party, it may be worth making your own.
And last toppings and cheese of your choice. I’m traditional so Italian sausage and pepperoni for me. Remember your space is limited and toppings tended to get out of control so only one or two will do.
I do love pizza, but my wife loved this also.
Notes: This is so dependent on your bread.
Preheat oven to 375 convection or 400 conventional.
Slice a loaf of French bread horizontally. I used a 9-inch baguette, but any length should be fine. A sub bun would work also. But the quality of the bread will determine you taste.
Prep toppings. I browned 1/2 pound of Italian sausage and cut some pepperoni in half.
Top with sauce. It took about 1/2 cup.
Bake on middle rack until nicely browned. About 10 minutes.
