This is exactly what it sounds like--pizza on french bread, and therefore, it's super easy.
One loaf french bread
mozzarella or preferred cheese blend
desired toppings--I used spinach, mushrooms, sausage and green pepper, but no more than three topping per pizza
- My plan was to make up a bunch of these pizzas and freeze them so when I'm not around, he can eat real food. To start, I measured the french bread against the size container I had to freeze it in, and then hacked off a chunk.
- Once the loaf was in chunks, I cut those in half, and scooped out a bit of the middle to create a nice divot for the toppings.
- add sauce
- add toppings
- wedge into container for freezing
- take the pizzas that you're not freezing, and heat them up on the George Forman grill and enjoy with a glass of sangria
These were super tasty, and I think they'll heat up well too. Sadly, the french bread doesn't hold a ton of toppings--it's pretty narrow, but still, good stuff. Also, I could not find non-shredded mozzarella cheese at the grocery store. All they had was pre-shredded in a bag, or fancy mozzarella balls--no brick, no savings.
Even considering how dirt-cheap the Red Baron and Stouffer's versions of these pizzas are, I still undercut doing it my way:
$2 for pizza sauce
$2 for cheese
$1.79 for french bread
$1 for toppings
Total $6.79 for 8 pizzas about $.85 apiece vs. $3.50 for two of the Stouffer's or $1.75 apiece.
...and I still have half a jar of sauce
