Equipment

  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 1 French Loaf Bread Soft (approx 12-16 inches long)
  • 1/2 cup Pizza Sauce
  • 1/3 cup Mushroom sliced (topping)
  • 1/3 cup Onion sliced (topping)
  • 1/3 cup Bell pepper sliced (topping)
  • 1 cup Mozzarella shredded
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F/ 204C
  • Slice the french bread in half and lay them cut side up on a baking sheet.
  • Spread a tablespoon or two of pizza sauce on each slice, top with your topping of choice and sprinkle 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella on each slice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are brown and the cheese has melted and is bubbly. Feel free to drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle chilli flakes if you like before serving.

Notes

  • White Bread: If using plain white bread slices, its best to pre-toast it for 5 minutes, before adding sauce, topping and cheese and then broiling it (toasting with the rack in the upper shelf with only the top element on) for 3-4 minutes till the cheese melts and the toppings roast.
  • Freezing Pizza Toasts: Pizza toasts can be easily frozen. Once you've prepared them, place unbaked pizza toasts on a baking sheet and place the sheet straight into the freezer for an hour, till the pizzas are frozen and hard. Then transfer them to a large ziplock bag for later. These will keep in the freezer for 2-3 months. When ready to bake, bake them frozen but add a few extra minutes to the baking time.
