French Bread Pizza Delight

French Bread Pizza Delight


  • 1 loaf of $1 French bread (available at Walmart)
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (or your favorite pizza cheese)
  • Assorted toppings of your choice (e.g., pepperoni, sliced bell peppers, mushrooms, olives, etc.)


  1. Preheat the oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C).
  2. Prepare the French bread:
    • Take the $1 French bread and cut it in half horizontally, creating two equal-sized pieces. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Spread the sauce:
    • Spoon the pizza sauce evenly over the cut sides of the French bread, spreading it out to the edges.
  4. Cheese it up:
    • Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded mozzarella cheese over the pizza sauce, covering the bread evenly.
  5. Toppings galore:
    • Let each person customize their own French bread pizza by adding their favorite toppings. Arrange the toppings evenly across the cheese.
  6. Bake to perfection:
    • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the edges of the French bread are golden brown.
  7. Serve and enjoy:
    • Carefully remove the French bread pizzas from the oven and let them cool for a minute or two. Slice them into individual portions and serve hot.
  8. Get creative:
    • Encourage your boys to get creative with their toppings. Maybe they want to mix and match different ingredients or come up with unique flavor combinations. This is a fun and interactive way to involve everyone in the cooking process.
  9. Optional: Dipping sauce:
    • Serve with a side of marinara or garlic dipping sauce for an extra burst of flavor.

This budget-friendly and customizable French Bread Pizza Delight is sure to be a hit with your family, offering a quick and delicious dinner option that everyone can enjoy!
