This pizza is the new recipe I sort of “made up”. Pizza is not something new to people, but this is a different style of pizza. I used French bread as the pizza “dough”.
NOTE: I recommend using double the ingredients than what you see in the pictures because the first time I tried it, the pizza came out kind of dry. So I tried it again a second time adding more ingredients and it came out just right.
Here it is…
Cut your loaf of french bread in half width-wise and then cut the half loaf in three length-wise. Grate some Marbled Jack Cheese…
…and spread it on all your pieces of bread (it came out way better when we added more cheese)
Thinly slice some onion, bell pepper (I got to use some from my garden) and some tomatoes. The different thing with this pizza is that it doesn’t have any sauce, but the tomatoes make up for that.
Spread everything on a cookie sheet
Grab some ham and dry salami and chop them up
spread them on a cookie sheet and pop them in the oven together with the veggies at 475 degrees. Keep an eye on them though, they burn quickly. You want to leave them until they start to sizzle a little. I burned the salami the first time I tried it. 🙂
Spread the ham and salami on the breads…
followed by the tomatoes…
…and the onions and bell peppers
Spread a layer of mozzarella cheese on top and sprinkle some freshly-cut basil. Place the pizza in right on the oven grate (I promise, this won’t get your oven messy) . After 2-3 min. check if the cheese is melted and if the bread is a little golden brown. Serve warm and Enjoy!
Now for the end results…
Here’s the recipe. You can change the quantity of the ingredients according to taste and preference.
1 1/2 loafs of French Bread
2 1/2 cups Marbled Jack Cheese
4 slices Ham
5 slices Italian Dry Salami (or any dry salami you have on hand)
2 Bell Peppers (You can use green, orange, and red) I used all three kinds because I had smaller bell peppers
2 cups Mozzarella Cheese
Preheat your oven to 475 degrees.
Cut your loaf of bread in half width-wise. Then cut your halves in three length-wise. Spread a layer of marbled jack cheese on all the breads and set aside. Thinly cut your tomatoes, onions, and bell peppers and spread them on a cookie sheet. Cut the ham and dry salami in pieces and spread them on another cookie sheet. Place both cookie sheets in the oven and leave them there until they start to sizzle a little. Keep an eye on them though, they burn quickly. Once they’re done, spread some ham and salami on your pizzas followed by the tomatoes, bell peppers and onions. Spread a layer of mozzarella cheese on top and then sprinkle some freshly-cut basil. Place your pizza directly on the oven grate, and leave them there for about 2-3 min. just until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown. Serve warm and Enjoy!
