French Bread Pizza

During the recent holiday season, my kids were getting tired of the usual Indian food and so I decided to try something different. The flat bread pizza is a comfort food in many European households. In my attempt to recreate this recipe, I tried to keep my focus on the balance of veggies, carbs and proteins without compromising the taste or flavor.


2-4 French bread (available at costco or any grocery store)
Marinara sauce as required
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese
4 cloves of garlic/ garlic powder
Toppings (olives, bell peppers, onions, paneer. You can add more variety if needed)
Salt and Black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Cut open the bread in to two halves. If the bread is soft, keep the bread inside the oven for 5 minutes.

2. On the toasted bread apply the marinara sauce. 

3. Then add the chopped toppings. I used the fresh veggies as is. But if you like it sauteed, saute onions, peppers in the pan for 3-5 minutes.Then add the toppings to the bread.

4. Sprinkle some salt, black pepper and grated garlic. Cover the toppings with mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese.

5. Now keep the bread inside the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. French bread pizza is ready.
