Tomato Baguette Pizza Recipe

When my tomatoes conspire to ripen all at once, I use them up in simple recipes like this one. Cheesy baguette pizzas, served with a salad, make an ideal lunch. —Lorraine Caland, Thunder Bay, Ontario

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 4, 2015

"I made this baguette pizza tonight, using my homemade pasta sauce. Fresh tomatoes aren't in season right now, so I chose not to use them. Since I used the sauce, I didn't need most of the herbs and spices b/c they were already in there. I did use mushrooms, green onion, black olives, yellow pepper, in addition to mozzarella and freshly grated parmesan. I baked them (I used two loaves) at 425 F. for 15 minutes, on a rack over a shallow roasting pan, so as to get the whole baguette brown and crisp. I will never buy a pizza from a restaurant again! This was by far THE best pizza we've ever eaten! The texture of the baguette was crisp on the outside and nice and chewy once you bit in to it. Absolutely the best!"
