French Bread Pizza Ideas


If you want to eat a pizza, but do not feel like going out or making your own crust, how about trying your hand at a French bread pizza? It is simple and easy to make, and cuts out the most time consuming part of the pizza making process.

The Basics

The best part about a French bread pizza is that it takes very little time to prepare and you can get as creative as you want with it. All you really need is a loaf of French bread cut in half, some cheese, and your toppings.

Once you have assembled your pizza, you just need to bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until all the cheese you have put on your pizza has melted. Here are a few pizza ideas to get the wheels going:

Pesto & Sun Dried Tomatoes Pizza

  • 1/3 cup pesto
  • ½ cup mozzarella
  • ½ cup sun dried tomatoes

Spread the pesto on the French bread, and then top it off with some mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes.

If you feel really fancy, you can wash off some cherry tomatoes, put them inside of an oven-safe pan, drizzle them with olive oil and broil for about 5 minutes. Then you can use these yummy creations on your pizza instead.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

  • 1/3 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella
  • ¼ cup cheddar cheese
  • ½ pulled BBQ chicken.

If you have some leftover BBQ chicken from a recent meal, put it to good use by turning it into a BBQ chicken pizza. Add the ingredients to the French bread in the order listed above, and you'll have a quick and tasty BBQ pizza in no time!

Sausage French Bread Pizza

  • 1/3 cup pizza sauce
  • ½ cup Italian cheese blend
  • 1 cooked sausage

This is a great way to get rid of an extra sausage. Boil or cook the sausage on top of your stove. Then thinly slice up the sausage. Add the pizza sauce and cheese to the bread, and top with the cooked sausage. The flavor of this pizza can vary a lot depending on the type of sausage that you have on hand.

The key to a good French bread pizza is at least ⅓ cup of sauce, ½ cup of your favorite cheese, and around ½ cup of whatever type of toppings you have. This can be a great way to get rid of that half a bell pepper or that little bit of leftover meat. Get creative and create a flavor you will enjoy.

How to Save Money When Eating Out

Welcome to my website. My name is Joanne Taylor. My family and I love eating out at restaurants, but with there being five of us, it can get expensive. In order to be able to continue to indulge in the luxury of eating at restaurants, my husband and I have come up with ways to order and save money. We always thought that ordering kids meals for young children was the cheapest way to go. But we found in many cases, it’s less expensive to order one regular meal and let our two youngest children split it. We make use of coupons whenever possible, restaurant daily specials, early bird specials, and other money savers. I’m going to share some of the ways we’ve been creative in the hope that you will find some useful tips.
