Ummmmm, can I just say, where did summer go? I can't believe it is already August. I am ready for our lives to slow back down, but does that ever happen? Anyway......
I am sure you have probably all seen Pizza Hut's new Garlic Bread Pizza. When I first saw it I though, "Yum.........why haven't I thought of that.......what? $8.99 for 9 pieces?........I can make that myself!"
So, maybe you thought the same thing. And maybe you have already made your own. But if not, add it to your dinner menu, and you won't be disappointed. We have definitely had the classic french bread pizza before where you slice the loaf lengthwise and spread the sauce on each side and then add toppings. It's a basic. But can I tell you, I think this is SO much better! Garlic Bread Pizza is so easy to make and even better it's pretty cheap. You are looking at about $3-4 for one loaf! That's is about 1/3 of the price if you bought it from Pizza Hut. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Pizza Hut, it's the pizza I grew up eating, and I understand the want to eat out. But, it isn't always an option, so why not get a great meal in only 15 minutes of time?
All you need....... loaf of french bread, butter, garlic bread seasoning, shredded mozzarella, and toppings.
Think how cheaply you could make this, especially if you pick up a clearanced loaf of french bread for under $1!
Garlic Bread Pizza (Copy Cat Pizza Hut)
Servings: 9-12 slices
Time: Under 15 minutes
1 loaf of French Bread
1 cube melted butter
Garlic Bread Seasoning (I used OOB recipe found here)
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Pepperoni (or whatever toppings you choose)
Start by lining your baking sheet with tin foil for easy clean up. Then start slicing your french bread into medallions (do not slice lengthwise). Get as many slices as you want by adjusting how thick your slices are. Arrange your pieces on your baking sheet by laying them flat so they are open face up. Add some garlic bread seasoning into your cube of melted butter (about a tablespoon or so). Then brush the garlic butter onto the tops of your bread slices. Then sprinkle with some mozzarella cheese and lastly add your toppings. Then stick it under your broiler in the oven for a few minutes. Just watch for the cheese to melt and get a little bubbly and golden and that's it! Pull it out of the oven, and enjoy! For a well rounded meal you could serve it alongside a green salad.
Your husbands will love it, your kids will love it, you will love it! You will love the price, the time and the taste!
