Garlic Bread Pizza


There have been many commercials on the TV recently for Pizza Hut's Garlic Bread Pizza. Since the closest Pizza Hut is over 40 miles away and I just don't think they are going to deliver here, I figured making my own was going to be necessary! :)

I started with a purchased rustic-style loaf of bread. I wanted the chewy texture so that it would hold up to the toppings. Spread with butter and sprinkle on some garlic powder and stick it under the broiler until golden brown.


Let it cool just a bit and then add your pizza sauce of choice.


Next, some shredded mozzarella cheese, a little or a lot - your choice!


Now, add your toppings. I just used sausage this time, I have also used pepperoni with bell peppers and onions.


Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cheese is lightly browned and bubbly.


This is so good, a lot quicker than making pizza dough, and you can make several different types so that everyone gets what they want. I guess it's a take-off on the old french bread pizzas but I like this version better as it is not as soggy.

Linking up with Rural Thursday and Farmgirl Friday.

Do you remember the pizza sauce that made quick toaster oven English muffin pizzas? Pizza Quick sauce maybe? Not so good. THIS looks delicious and just as quick!

They look so yummy... let me tell ya we had the pizza hut ones and they're not that great... I'm sure yours taste way better. I've got to make some of these for my family... I use to make the french bread pizzas years ago.

This is so great for me. I work late on Saturdays so we order pizza. This is much cheaper and a lot faster then ordering. My kids would love making this so I still wouldn't have to cook. You made my day! Yes, I will be using this recipe a lot.

I have done that with a grocery store baguette, split lengthwise, cut in 1/2 and add on!

We love French Bread Pizza! I bet your garlic bread has a nice buttery crunch to it. Thanks for the cool idea, Candy.

Now that I could make! I am NOT a cook and a pretty much steer away from sites with recipes but I went out on a limb and I'm glad I did. I'm joining now. Have a great weekend and the beginning of the next week, too, k?
