French Bread Pizza

After seeing it on TV, the internet, and even the occassional cook book, I decided that tonight, my husband and I would have French Bread pizza for supper.  My Honey wants to have pizza, and I want to try this idea.  Seems like a win-win, a very simple win-win.  I like it when things are simple.  Now, since I’m just trying out this idea for the first time, I just bought a loaf of French bread at the grocery store.  (Besides, it’s hard to beat bread for a buck – seriously.)  If it turns out to be something that we like a lot, I will probably try making the bread next time.  I’ve found a couple of recipes on the internet that look fairly simple, but that just might be another post.  😀



  • 1 loaf of French bread, halved down the middle
  • 1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 2 tsp. tomato paste
  • 4 tbsp. spreadable butter
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. Italian seasoning
  • toppings of your choice
  • 2 tbsp. parmesan cheese
  • 2-4 cups mozzarella cheese


  1. Slice the bread in half, long-ways.
  2. Spread about 2 tbsp. of butter on each side of bread.
  3. Sprinkle about 1 tbsp. of garic powder and Italian seasoning on each side of bread.
  4. Place on a large cookie sheet or pizza pan, and broil until bread is toasted and butter is melted (just a couple of minutes – watch closely!).
  5. In a saucepan combine tomato sauce, tomato paste, and the remaining half a tbsp. of garlic powder and Italian seasoning.  Heat and mix until sauce, seasonings, and paste are well-combined.
  6. Spread sauce on toasted bread.  Only what is necessary or to your taste.  You do not want to make the bread soggy.
  7. Place toppings on top of the sauce.
  8. Sprinkle each side of bread with about 1 tbsp. of parmesan cheese.
  9. Cover each side of bread with 1-2 cups of mozzarella cheese.
  10. Place in broiler again just long enough to melt the cheese.  (Just a couple of minutes.)
