1 loaf of French bread or crusty artisan bread

4-5 tbsp. softened butter

1 tbsp. garlic powder

1 ½ cups pizza sauce (Use more or less, depending on how much sauce you like.)

2 cups mozzarella cheese

Any pizza toppings you like (pepperoni, ham, sausage, mushrooms, peppers, pineapple, etc.)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cut French bread in half lengthwise.
  3. Spread 2 tbsp. of butter on each side and sprinkle with garlic powder.
  4. Place on a baking sheet, cut side up, and bake 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp on top.
  5. Remove from the oven and spread pizza sauce on top.
  6. Top with cheese and toppings as desired.
  7. Bake 12-15 minutes until browned and bubbly. Broil for 1-2 minutes if desired.
  8. Let pizza cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

***Ensure meat toppings like sausage or chicken are thoroughly cooked before adding. If your toppings have a lot of moisture, like mushrooms, cook them first. Toppings like pineapple may need to be lightly squeezed and then patted dry.
