Pizza is a favorite for everyone! But it ca be high in calories and fat if we eat to much, especially of the favored delivery pizzas! The other night, I had a terrible craving for pizza and not wanting to blow my good day of eating, opted for this simple alternative to the standard pizza!
The ingredients are easy, its an easy dish to make for multiple people and trust me its delicious!
Yummy Baguette Pizza:
1 whole wheat ( or white) french baguette
1 cup Pizza sauce (for a bite I used Rao's Arrabiata pasta sauce- it was wonderful!)
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (use part skim)
* 1/4 cup spinach, mushrooms or any other toppings you might want!
Pre-heat oven to 350
Cut Baguette in half, and then in fourths- removing the curved parts at the end! To make it crispier, remove the inside break, so there is just a light layer of breading before the crust. ( You can dip the scraps of bread in a delicious blend of olive oil and crushed pepper while you are cooking/ waiting)
Cover bread parts with sauce evenly and depending on how much sauce you want- I love saucy pizzas so I use more. Then cover with cheese and other toppings, put on a baking sheet and cookie for 15- 20 minutes until cheese is melted and the crust is at your desired crispiness!
