Pizza bread is a delicious and versatile dish that combines the flavors of pizza in a convenient and easy-to-make form. It typically involves using bread, such as baguette, ciabatta, or French bread, as a base and topping it with pizza ingredients. Here’s a basic recipe for making pizza bread:


  • 1 loaf of bread (baguette, ciabatta, French bread, or any preferred type)
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce or pizza sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (or any preferred cheese)
  • Pizza toppings of your choice (e.g., sliced pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, olives, mushrooms, etc.)
  • Olive oil (for brushing, optional)
  • Dried oregano and red pepper flakes (optional, for seasoning)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 375Β°F (190Β°C).
  1. Prepare the Bread:
  • Slice the bread in half lengthwise to create two long halves. You can also slice it into smaller portions if you prefer individual servings.
  1. Hollow Out the Bread (Optional):
  • If you’d like a deeper β€œpizza” experience, you can hollow out some of the soft bread from the inside, leaving a thicker crust.
  1. Brush with Olive Oil (Optional):
  • Brush the cut sides of the bread with olive oil if you want a slightly crispy crust. This step is optional but can enhance the texture.
  1. Spread the Tomato Sauce:
  • Spread a generous amount of tomato or pizza sauce evenly over the cut sides of the bread. Use as much or as little as you like, depending on your preference for sauciness.
  1. Add the Cheese:
  • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese (or your preferred cheese) evenly over the tomato sauce. Make sure to cover the sauce entirely.
  1. Add Toppings:
  • Layer your choice of pizza toppings over the cheese. Be creative and use your favorite ingredients to personalize your pizza bread.
  1. Season (Optional):
  • Sprinkle dried oregano and red pepper flakes over the toppings for extra flavor. You can also add a pinch of salt and black pepper if desired.
  1. Bake:
  • Place the prepared pizza bread on a baking sheet or directly on the oven rack and bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the bread is toasted to your liking.
  1. Slice and Serve:
    • Remove the pizza bread from the oven and let it cool for a minute or two. Then, slice it into individual portions and serve hot.
  2. Enjoy your Pizza Bread!
    • Pizza bread is a fantastic appetizer, snack, or quick meal. It’s perfect for sharing with friends and family.

Feel free to customize your pizza bread with your favorite pizza toppings, such as cooked sausage, sliced tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, or even pineapple if you enjoy a Hawaiian twist. This recipe offers endless possibilities for creating delicious pizza-inspired treats.
