French Bread Pizza

French Bread Pizza 015

I always sit here and think y’all want to see fancy.

And then I think, most people don’t have time for fancy.

So tonight I am bringing you NOT fancy, actually it’s about as simple as you can get.

You get an Easy French Bread Pizza.

I remember back in the day, frozen French Bread Pizza was allll the rage.

If you can slice a loaf of french bread in half then really there is no need to get the frozen variety.

Let’s see how complicated this really is……

You need a pretty loaf of French Bread
