Eeyup, fresh out the oven...looks like my peps got a bit burned
I love it. I always seem to have leftover bread, cheese, and pizza/pasta sauce so I always do these things in the oven. Love to add any left over peppers/mushrooms/salami/basic too. It's obviously not authentic pizza but it's tasty, filling, and a great way to take slightly stale bread and leftover ingredients, giving them a delicious new life. And I hate wasting food so if I make these I will pile on all the leftover veggies I have.
The key to homemade french bread pizza is low density, very crispy, not-too-thick french bread.
Too thick, too dense, too doughy will trap sauce and be like a wet diaper. Somewhat thin, low density and crispy makes it delicious.
Absolutely not. I remember the first time I ever had it. I was 3-4, at this point I'd only been in the US for a year or two. I rarely ate out at this time; most of what I ate was home cooked Jamaican food. It was a regular day in kindergarten, and French bread pizza was for lunch. Thinking back I think this might have been my first time eating pizza. What I'm sure of is that it ended with me feeling awful, I almost threw up when I tasted it. The bread tasted like garlic bread, and I couldn't handle it. Soon after school ended. Oh and I almost pooped my pants on the way home and had diaries all night.
