Fast French Bread Pizza

This past week included many busy evenings. Instead of our usual sandwiches before soccer practice, I decided to change it up a little bit. This recipe is not a "new" concept. I'm pretty sure I have had almost every version of homemade pizza…..including pizzas made out of biscuit dough, english muffins and crescent rolls. What makes this recipe unique is the way that it is baked… and fast!!!!
Fast French Bread Pizza
adapted from the blog What's Cooking with Ruthie

1 large loaf of French Bread
1 jar of Pizza Sauce
2 cups Italian Five Cheese, shredded
*any other toppings you like….sliced black olives, sliced mushrooms, finely diced veggies, pepperoni slices, Italian sausage (cooked), etc….

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.  Cut the French Bread in half lengthwise and place on a cookie sheet open faced. Spread pizza sauce on top of all the slices. Cover all slices with cheese and your favorite toppings. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes until the cheese is melted and slightly browned.  Cut into 2 inch wide strips and serve!!!
What makes this recipe super delicious is the flaky crunchy outside crust….yet you still get the "easy to eat" soft insides with the perfectly melted Italian cheese. Let your imagination run wild with flavor combinations….it truly is limitless!!! It is a definite kid pleaser and great to grab as you are running out the door!!!
