I had a loaf of french bread sitting on the counter that I needed to get used up, and the kids always love pizza, so I got thinking and came up with French Bread Pizzas. Quick, easy and tasty. Another bonus....they take only about 15 minutes to make and cook. Dinner in under 30 minutes that the whole family loves. Score!
1 loaf French bread, cut in half lengthwise, or into 1 inch slices (when I do the slices I let the kids "decorate" their own)
1 1/2 cups marinara sauce
3 cups cheese, shredded (I usually use mozzarella, but only had cheddar this time)
Lay sliced bread out on a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil. Spread sauce over bread and sprinkle with cheese. Top with pepperoni and olives and sprinkle with a little additional cheese. Bake at 400 for 5 to 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Any pizza toppings could be used, we just chose to go with pepperoni and olives.
