A simple and easy recipe for Supreme Bread Pizza – whip it up and add the toppings of your choice
1 Bread Loaf – Italian or French
2 tablespoons Bertolli Olive Oil Extra Virgin Olive Oil plus one more drizzle
2 cups Shredded Italian Pizza Blend Cheese
1 Cup Tomato Sauce Olive Oil + Garlic
1 cup Mini Pepperoni
14 Hard Salami Slices
1/2 cup Black Olive – sliced.
1/2 cup Green Pepper – diced.
Herbs: Oregano, Italian Herb Blend
Other Ingredients: Prosciutto Olives, Sauce for dipping, etc.
Preheat standard oven to 400F/200C.
Slice the bread in half, lengthwise, then drizzle about one tablespoon on each side. Gently press the bread a bit in the middle, just enough to stretch it and make room for the toppings.
Add on about 1/4 cup of cheese on the bottom of each bread slice, then drizzle tomato sauce. If you want to use more sauce, you can. Add more cheese and the rest of the toppings. I add a bit of cheese first because it is like a barrier, so the bread doesn’t get to soak with the sauce.
Bake for 12-15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the crust is somewhat crunchy, and the cheese is completely melted.
Allow it to cool down for a couple of minutes before slicing. Drizzle just a bit of olive oil before serving.
You can add a different blend of cheese, sauce, as well as any toppings that you prefer. In the case of the bread: Italian, French, Cuban, flatbread, or slices of homemade bread would work just fine. Before baking, you can wrap it up and freeze for up to 3 months. Bake at 400F/200C for 20 minutes or until the pizza is completely thawed and cheese melted.
