Found the idea for this recipe on Pinterest (of course). What did we do before pinterest? Oh yes Facebook! HA! I love Pinterest and I think I have said that before MANY times!
So this is what you will need for your french bread pizza:
1 loaf of french bread
sauce (gotta be homemade) I mean you can do store-bought, but why would you? HA! I am allllll about homemade!
your favorite toppings
I chose Crimini Mushrooms, sliced
White button mushrooms, sliced (I love mushrooms)
Sliced red onion
sliced Green bell pepper
and freshly grated parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
So start my making your sauce, so simple!
I just grabbed a medium sauce pan and preheated the burner to medium heat and coated the bottom of the sauce pan with a little bit of olive oil,
then added in 2 garlic cloves that I minced finely
then waited a couple of minutes and sautéed the garlic cloves till I smelled the garlic very strong and then added in a 28oz can of tomato sauce
then added salt, pepper, italian seasoning, red wine, balsamic vinegar, 1 tsp brown sugar, garlic salt, dried thyme…just whatever seasoning sound good to you!
Let the sauce simmer for 10-15 minutes
While the sauce was simmering I prepped all the other ingredients
Bake for 10 minutes and then once the 10 minutes is done I put the oven on broil for 5 minutes for the bread and veggies to crisp up some…
They might have gotten a little too done, and I burnt the bread a little. And actually it added flavor
