French Bread Pizza with Meat Sauce

Tuesday, August 4, 2015

French Bread Pizza with Meat Sauce makes a great inexpensive quick meal.
The other night I needed to put dinner together quick. 
I was out most of the day running errands and I didn't want to go through a drive thru or order a pizza to bring home for dinner. Then I remembered I had a loaf of French bread waiting for me at home that I purchased from Walmart the day before for one dollar.  Yes, $1.00. Dinner was going to be quick and inexpensive using the loaf of French bread and some pantry stables that I always have on hand.  French Bread Pizza with Meat Sauce was a meal that my family loved and is already asking for again! 

French Bread Pizza with Homemade Meat Sauce


  • Loaf of French or Italian Bread
  • Meat Sauce
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Pizza Toppings; peppers, pepperoni, etc.


Cut the loaf of bread in half lengthwise
Spread the meat sauce on top of each half of bread
Top with mozzarella cheese and your favorite pizza toppings.
Bake in a preheated 435 degree oven until the cheese is bubbly.

French Bread Pizza fresh from the oven!  Add a salad and your quick and inexpensive meal is ready for the family to enjoy for dinner tonight!
