- 1 or 2 loaves of French bread, split lengthwise and cut into manageable portions
- Olive oil or melted butter
- Pizza sauce
- Shredded Cheese (mozzarella, cheddar, co-jack, etc.)
- Toppings of choice (sausage, pepperoni, chicken, bacon, onion, peppers, mushrooms, etc.)
Preheat oven to 425oF.
Place cut bread on a baking sheet. Lightly spray or brush the cut surface of the bread with olive oil or butter and bake 7-8 minutes, until crispy and golden (but not overly browned).
Top each piece with sauce, cheese and any toppings of your choice.
Bake pizzas for 12-15 minutes, until the edges of the pizza are very brown, and the cheese is bubbly and melted.
To freeze, wrap each prepared pizza in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag labeled with the type of pizza, date, and cooking instructions. When ready to eat, thaw pizzas in the refrigerator for a few hours. Heat oven to 425oF and bake for 12-15 minutes. You can also bake the pizzas from frozen, by adding about 10 minutes to the cooking time. In my experience, the edges of the pizza get extra brown and crispy with that method.
