French Bread Pizza


We were in the mood to hang around the house tonight, even though it’s a Friday night. We took a drive to Cal State University San Marcos today so Kylie could check out where her classes are and so she could figure out which one of the many parking lots she should park in so she’s closest to where she’ll need to be first thing in the morning. Turns out, there were several people doing the same thing as us today. We saw several students walking around to find where their classes will be held. I think Kylie is going to be in the best shape of her life – CSUSM has so many stairs!

While we were driving up to CSUSM, a vision of French bread popped in my head and I said to Dennis “I think we should have French Bread pizza for dinner tonight.” Dennis loves pizza, so quickly agreed to my plan.

Once we got home, Kylie and I headed to the grocery store to get what we’d need. I decided I’d make enough for leftovers and enough to throw in the freezer for later in the week. I will be out Thursday night at bookclub, so won’t be cooking. This will be the perfect dinner for Kylie and Dennis to have while I’m out. Kylie can heat dinner up for the both of them and it will be something quick for Dennis to have before he heads to his men’s softball game.

I made one all cheese, one pepperoni and black olive and two Italian sausage, red pepper and shallot. I bought a package of mild Italian sausage and cooked it (using only half of the package and saving the rest for another meal).


  • French bread loaf
  • part skim mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • pizza sauce
  • toppings of your choice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cook Italian sausage, drain fat.
  3. Cut bread in half lengthwise and place open face on a baking sheet.
  4. Spread pizza sauce on bread.
  5. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and toppings.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until cheese is melted.


Until next time, Kris
