French Bread Pizza

As long as you have everything for it in your kitchen, French bread pizza is a very easy and tasty meal to throw together!  You can use whatever French bread you like, whether it's homemade or store-bought.  I like to try to always keep a couple of loaves of my homemade French bread in the freezer, so that I'm always ready to make this just in case I'm having "one of those days" where I need something quick to throw together for dinner.

I'm not putting in an ingredients list here, because the amounts are totally up to you and are better eye-balled than measured.  This post is more to help with assembly and baking.  :-)  Just make sure you have a loaf of French bread (my family needs AT LEAST 2 loaves), your favorite pizza sauce (we just use our favorite jarred spaghetti sauce from Aldi), shredded mozzarella, and your favorite pizza toppings.

Preheat the oven to 425F.  Get out a baking sheet but do NOT grease it.

Cut your loaf of French bread lengthwise in half.  Depending on the size of your pan and the length of the bread, you may need to cut it crosswise in half as well.  Lay the bread, cut side up, on the baking pan.  Spread pizza or spaghetti sauce on the cut sides, then top with whatever toppings tickle your fancy.  We like to be what most people would call boring and just use pepperoni on some and plain ole cheese on the rest.  ;-)  When your satisfied with the toppings, sprinkle on the cheese.  Use as little or as much as you want!  Or, at least as much as the bread can handle.  LOL!  Have fun with this, it's the beauty of making your own stuff!  :-)

Once the oven is preheated, slide the pan with the pizzas into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes, just until the cheese is melted and browned lightly.  Pull the pan out, cut into pieces of desired size, and enjoy!
