Here is a family favorite recipe that beats out a pizza delivery vote every time and costs less.
We purchase deeply discounted day old French bread loaves at both our grocery store and our favorite sub shop. Extra loaves are placed in large zip lock bags and frozen for later use. Most of our pizza toppings are either fresh from the garden or canned / dried from our pantry.
This recipe is completed within a few minutes. By the time the oven or grill is preheated your French bread pizza is ready for baking.
