Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 loaf French bread
  • 16 oz buffalo mozzarella cheese, sliced thin
  • 1 jar of your favorite pizza sauce
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves (or dried basil)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice your French bread into four equal pieces. Then, slice those four pieces in half so now you have eight pieces of bread.
  3. Spoon pizza sauce over slices of bread, then arrange slices of buffalo mozzarella over top.
  4. Place pizzas on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, until bubbly. Immediately upon removing from the oven, scatter the basil on top.
