foodie wednesday: french bread pizzas

i promised yesterday that i would post the recipes for the french bread pizzas we made for our clothing swap.  my sis had the brilliant idea of getting a large boule (i.e. round loaf) and cutting it into 4 layers (like a layer cake) - each layer served as a crust for our toppings.  they were delish!  and super easy to make : )

so, here's what went down:

1 large boule, cut into 4 layers
1/2 cup pesto
1/2 cup red sauce
cheeses (as much and as many as you want)
roasted red peppers
turkey pepperoni

1. preheat oven to 350 degrees and toast bread for a few minutes to get it a little crispy

2. top 2 rounds with pesto, 2 with red sauce

3. add cheese and olives and pepperoni and peppers and whatever else you please  (our combos?  (1) pesto + bleu cheese + provolone + olives / (2) red sauce + mozzarella + cheddar / (3) pesto + mozzarella + roasted red peppers / (4) red sauce + muenster cheese + turkey pepperoni)

4. bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until cheese is golden and bubbly

5. cool slightly before cutting

makes 6 (or so) lunch servings

we paired our pizza with a simple salad.  mixed greens & arugula topped with bleu cheese and dried cranberries.  we dressed it with a classic balsamic vinaigrette.  yum!  to complete the feast, we sipped on some sangria

it was a lovely lunch : )
