Homemade French Bread Pizza

With just a few easy tips, I’m going to show you how to make perfect French Bread Pizza! This method creates cheesy pizzas with a crispy crust. It’s homemade pizza that’s fast enough for a quick lunch or casual dinner.

Do you know what the simple secret is for perfect French Bread Pizza? It’s an extra layer of cheese!

That first layer of cheese seals the bread and prevents it from getting soggy in the oven. This allows us to pile on the toppings and a good bit of sauce without messing up the perfectly chewy French bread crust.

The second layer of cheese holds everything together and creates a homemade pizza night that’s easier than you ever imagined.

How To Make French Bread Pizza

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Slice the bread in half lengthwise and then cut each half into 3 pieces, as pictured. If the bread is thicker than about 1-inch, press down on each piece until it’s closer to that thickness.
  2. Place the pieces on a large baking sheet. Combine the olive oil and salt in a small bowl. Brush the sliced portion of each piece with the olive oil mixture.
  3. Top the bread with half of the cheese and place in the oven. Cook for 8-10 minutes until the cheese melts.
  4. While the cheese is melting, warm the sauce and the chicken in the microwave or on the stovetop. Remove the bread from the oven and spread the sauce evenly over the bread. Top with the chicken.
  5. Cover the chicken with the remaining cheese and return to the oven until the cheese has melted and the sauce is bubbling, about 5-6 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with parsley before serving.

For the busiest days, the slow cooker is my favorite dinner helper. Crockpot Sweet and Sour Meatballs and Salsa Chicken with Black Beans are both great options that never disappoint.

Pizza Sliders are made with buttered garlic and parmesan Hawaiian rolls, marinara, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese. No one can resist these.
