  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a cookie sheet with foil for easy cleanup.
  • Slice the french bread in half horizontally. Place both halves face up on prepared cookie sheet.
  • Spread sauce evenly over bread. Top with cheese and toppings.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is somewhat toasted.
  • Slice and serve hot. Store leftovers in refrigerator.



Topping Ideas:

  • Pepperoni, salami, sausage
  • Olives, mushrooms, peppers, onions
  • Ham, pineapple


  • If you don't want the sauce to soak into the bread, toast the bread by baking it 3-5 minutes before topping with sauce.
  • Reheat pizza in the oven or using a toaster oven or air fryer to keep leftovers crunchy.
