French Bread Pizzas
I don't cook.
Okay, I can cook some great Sloppy Joe's, Spaghetti Salad and perhaps a few other things but in general, my husband cooks and I clean. It's a good thing.
Every now and then though I have to cook and my kids like pizza so I make these. They are super quick, super easy and when I add one more ingredient (not pictured), I make them super healthy.
All you do is cut the bread, cover it with sauce, cheese and all the fixin's (duh)!
Place them on a pan (no spray needed) and that's it!
How easy is that?
I put garlic, onions, mushrooms and peppers on mine, but these were for my kids and they don't like all that good stuff yet. Preheat your oven to 500 degrees and cook them for 7-10 minutes and they're done. My kids LOVE these! They have a bit of crunch to the outside and yummy softness in the inside!
And now to tell you about the hidden ingredient that I have used in the past... SPINACH!
My kids (though good eaters usually) are not big on the veggies if it's not edamame, cold carrots or green beans. Spinach is loaded with goodness and so I puree it and put it down UNDER the red pizza sauce and 9 times out of 10, they don't even notice. It's true! You can't taste it, so you should do it on your own pizzas too...
Here is another variation. I got some yummy bread from Costco and made these tasty guys.
And bonus, they're cheaper and better than grabbing a hot and ready!
