French Bread Pizzas

Makes 2-4 servings



1 whole loaf French bread

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup pizza sauce, divided

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

Your desired toppings (see this recipe for many ideas)

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.


Slice bread in half lengthwise and place on a large baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Brush cut side of each loaf with a little olive oil. Bake for 5-6 minutes, or until lightly browned.


Spread 1/4 cup pizza sauce on each bread half, then top each with 1/4 cup cheese. Add desired toppings. Evenly sprinkle bread halves with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Season with salt and pepper.


Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is heated through.
