Tot Tuesday is a weekly feature where I highlight a special kids activity, frugal recipe for kids, kids tutorial, etc.
Do your kids like pizza? Why am I even asking? Of course they do! If you are anything like me though, inevitably when they ask I either A. don’t feel like making the crust and don’t have any frozen or B. Don’t feel like spending money on expensive delivery.
So today when my son asked for pizza, I quickly improvised with food I already had laying around! I call these French Bread Pizzas because they are made on leftover french bread rolls from some sandwiches we had late last week. You could easily do this on hot dog buns or really any kind of leftover bread you have laying around though. If it looks like pizza, and it has cheese and sauce…most kids don’t care!
Quick & Easy “French Bread” Pizza (sub any kind of bread you like for French Bread)
- Bread…I used french bread sub rolls
- Tomato sauce
- part skim mozzarella
- salt & pepper
- italian seasoning
- Worcestershire sauce
Toast your bread on the side that you will be putting the sauce and cheese on first. I made mine on our electric grill. You could put garlic butter on the bread first to make it even tastier, but my kids just want a delivery vehicle for cheese and sauce so I didn’t.
Meanwhile, take your tomato sauce and add your salt & pepper & italian seasoning to taste. Throw in a dash of Worcestershire sauce.
Flip bread over when it’s toasted and spread tomato sauce on bread. Top with cheese. Let the bread sit and toast for a bit on the other side while the cheese melts.
Voila! Quick and easy. Kids get pizza, you use up leftover bread!
