French Bread Pizza

Slices of this hearty french bread pizza are guaranteed to please. I sometimes substitute spaghetti sauce for the pizza sauce, or add our favorite veggies to the toppings. —Sue McLaughlin, Onawa, Iowa

    Easy and quick to make when you are in a hurry! We topped ours with pepperoni instead of mushrooms and beef. I love that you can really customize the toppings to your liking.

    Have been making this recipe for years everyone in my family loves it and our kids friends love it as well. Always a great goto meal if time is crunched.

    This was delicious. I made it more like traditional pizza though and used pepperoni instead of the ground beef.
