Pizza is a popular dish in all parts of the world. It is an oven-baked, flat, and generally round bread, topped or covered with ingredients based on different recipes. Toppings can be added according to the taste of people belonging to different regions or cultures. French bread pizzas are the delicious ones, which are liked not only in France, but other parts of the world as well.

Sausage Pepper French Bread Pizza
Ingredients:
  • 1 can of 14.5-ounce diced tomatoes
  • 1½ cups sliced onion
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup red bell pepper strips
  • 1 loaf French bread, cut in half horizontally
  • ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 2 links turkey Italian sausage
Preparation:
Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat and add a little cooking spray. Then add sliced onion and bell pepper strips, and sauté. Add sausage (from which casings have been removed) to the pan, and cook for 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Now put the crushed red pepper and diced tomatoes, and cook for 5 more minutes or till the mixture thickens. Spread the sausage mixture on cut sides of bread and sprinkle evenly with cheese. Now for baking, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and place the bread halves on a baking sheet. Bake the pizza for 5 minutes, or until the cheese melts, and cut each pizza in half before serving.

French Bread Pizza with Chicken
Ingredients:
  • ¼ cup finely-diced red bell pepper
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup grated asiago or romano cheese
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 sixteen oz. loaf French bread
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
Preparation:
Put softened butter, olive oil, grated asiago or romano cheese, minced garlic, dried basil, red bell pepper, and black pepper in a small bowl, and stir the ingredients. Slice the french bread into two halves and cut each half into three pieces. Now spread the butter mixture over each piece and top it with rotisserie chicken. Sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses over chicken, and bake the pizza for 8-12 minutes in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F. This recipe provides an excellent way to use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken, and can be served for lunch, dinner or as a snack.

French Bread Pizza with Tomato Pasta Sauce
Ingredients:
  • 2 packs, each of 150g mozzarella which is drained and torn into pieces
  • 290 g jar chargrilled artichoke hearts in olive oil
  • 150 g thinly sliced salami
  • 2 tbsp. tomato pasta sauce from a jar
  • 75 g pitted black olives
  • 2 short fat French sticks
  • Handful torn fresh basil leaves
Preparation:
Cut the French sticks into two equal halves and place them, cut-side up, on a baking sheet. Spread tomato pasta sauce on each piece and drain the artichoke hearts on a separate platter. Halve each heart and divide between the pizza bases, along with the olives, basil and salami. Spread the mozzarella over the top and sprinkle black pepper. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and bake the pizza for 10 minutes, or until the cheese melts and the bread is lightly golden. Serve the pizza with a crisp green salad.

Instead of ordering for pizza the next time, it's good to prepare an easy French bread pizza at home itself, using ingredients which are easily available. By preparing it at home, one can make it as healthy as one likes because we can control the amount of cheese, meat and vegetables that are added.
