Easy Supreme French Bread Pizza


  • 1 loaf French bread
  • 3 T. butter, melted
  • 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • about 1/3 c. jarred marinara sauce
  • 1 1/2 to 2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • about 15 pepperoni slices, halved
  • 1/2 c. pre-cooked sausage crumbles
  • 1/2 of one small red onion, cut in slivers
  • 8 to 10 small mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/3 of a red bell pepper, chopped
  • chopped fresh parsley for garnish {optional}


  1. Cut French bread in half lengthwise and place cut-side-up on a baking sheet. Brush cut sides with melted butter all the way to the edges and sprinkle evenly with garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Bake at 450℉ for 4 minutes or until just barely lightly browned on the edges.
  2. Remove from the oven. Spread each piece of bread evenly with half the marinara sauce, then sprinkle on half the mozzarella cheese. Top each piece of bread evenly with half of the pepperoni, sausage, red onion, mushrooms, and red pepper. Sprinkle each with half of the remaining mozzarella cheese.
  3. Return to 450℉ oven and bake for 6 - 8 minutes until cheese is melty. Remove from oven and slice into pieces using a sharp serrated knife.

NOTE: Some loaves of French bread are bigger than others.  Adjust amounts to suit the size of the bread and your personal taste.
