French Bread Pizza (Baguette Pizza)

If you’re in the mood for pizza but don’t have the time to knead and bake a proper pizza dough, this French bread pizza recipe is a real lifesaver.

It’s not really a pizza, of course, but it makes a quick and super tasty lunch. The toppings are up to you, but be sure to include a sauce to spread on the baguette. A classic tomato and basil sauce on one half of the baguette and a homemade basil pesto on the other half is a good choice, and, of course, grated mozzarella on top. Then you can add salami, ham, cheese, olives, tomatoes, peppers, onions, tuna, corn – you name it!

As for the baguette, choose whichever you like, a classic baguette (my favorite) or some other type of French bread.

Once you’ve dressed your baguette with your chosen ingredients, simply pop it in the oven for a few minutes, and you have crunchy, savory and very tasty French bread pizza! Bon appetit!

  • mozzarella cheese grated
  • 7 plum tomatoes halved
  • fresh basil leaves

  • Repeat the process with the second baguette.

  • Place the pizza baguettes on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the cheese has melted and browned and the tomatoes have softened.
