French Bread Pizza

French bread pizzas are great for a lot of reasons.

  1. It eliminates the time spent rolling out and shaping pizza dough. That makes these an easy weeknight dinner or game day snack during football season. You could throw these together during halftime.
  2. The bread has a more robust flavor and still gets crispy edges.
  3. They are budget friendly and quick because you can buy a loaf at the bakery or grocery store instead of making your own.
  4. They are perfect if you are eating pizza with anyone else who has a different preference for toppings than you do.
