DIY French Bread Pizza

DIY French Bread Pizza


  • 1 loaf of $1 French bread
  • 1 cup store-bought pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Assorted toppings of your choice:
    • Peppers (bell peppers or hot peppers)
    • Pepperoni slices
    • Mushrooms, sliced
    • Onions, thinly sliced
    • Sausage, cooked and crumbled
    • Meatballs, sliced
    • Olives, sliced


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C). This high temperature will give the French bread a crispy crust and melt the cheese perfectly.
  2. Prepare the French Bread:
    • Cut the $1 French bread loaf in half lengthwise. This will create two pizza crusts.
  3. Spread the Pizza Sauce:
    • Evenly spread the store-bought pizza sauce over each half of the French bread. Make sure to leave a small border around the edges for a crust.
  4. Add the Cheese:
    • Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded mozzarella cheese over the pizza sauce. Feel free to adjust the amount based on your cheese preference.
  5. Choose Your Toppings:
    • Let your family get creative! Arrange the assorted toppings of your choice on the pizzas. Consider setting up a topping station so everyone can build their own masterpiece.
  6. Bake to Perfection:
    • Place the prepared French bread pizzas on a baking sheet or directly on the oven rack. Bake at 475°F for approximately 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the edges of the bread are golden brown.
  7. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Carefully remove the French bread pizzas from the oven. Allow them to cool for a minute or two before slicing. Serve the slices, and let each family member enjoy their customized creation!
  8. Variations:
    • Experiment with different cheeses, sauces, and unique toppings to make each pizza night exciting. Consider adding fresh herbs like basil or oregano for an extra burst of flavor.
  9. Suggested Sides:
    • Pair your DIY French bread pizzas with a simple side salad or some fresh fruit for a well-balanced meal.
  10. Get Creative:
    • Encourage your family to come up with new topping combinations. The sky’s the limit, so let everyone’s imagination run wild!

Enjoy your delicious and budget-friendly DIY French Bread Pizza night! 🍕❤️
