French Bread Pizza
For this recipe, we chose sausage and caramelized onion for our pizza toppings, but you can choose any toppings you'd like!
6 whole deli rolls or French bread, sliced
Your favorite marinara or pizza sauce
Your favorite refrigerated pesto
- 2 lb. shredded mozzarella cheese
Johnny’s Garlic Parmesan Seasoning, to taste
2 tbsp. Butter
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1/2 lb. sausage (breakfast or italian)
- Your favorite toppings
Preheat your oven to 375°F.
Begin by halving your rolls and placing them on a large baking sheet, cut side up.
On each half, spread a generous layer of either marinara sauce or pesto, followed by ample amounts of grated mozzarella and parmesan garlic seasoning if desired.
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, occasionally stirring, until they turn golden and become tender. This usually takes around 8 to 10 minutes. Once done, transfer the onions to a plate.
In the same skillet, add the sausage. Break it up using a wooden spoon and cook until it's no longer pink. This usually takes about 6 to 8 minutes.
Now, it's time to top the bread. First, layer on the sautéed onions and cooked sausage. Feel free to add any optional toppings of your choice.
Once everything is assembled, place the baking sheet in the oven on the lowest rack for 8 to 10 minutes. Then, increase the temperature to 425°F and move the baking sheet to the highest rack. Keep it there until the cheese becomes bubbly and turns a delightful golden hue, which typically takes around 2 to 3 minutes.
- 8. Remove from the oven and serve promptly! If you'd like, cut the pizzas in half across the middle so you have mini French bread pizzas to share. Enjoy!
