This antipasto french bread pizza can be made in 15 minutes start to finish. An easy, tasty weekday meal or snack for the big game.
Pizza is pretty much a regular thing around my house. I don’t even eat it buy my hubby and son love pizza and it’s an easy meal for a Friday night. I play around with making 2 ingredient dough (Freezer Pizzas) or making it with naan bread (Easy Flatbread) and even made it into a low carb waffles (Pizza Waffles)! Today I tried using French bread to make this Antipasto French Bread Pizza. It has all the components of an antipasto; meat, cheese, peppers and artichokes all on a tasty hunk of fresh, French bread.
The combination is courtesy of local gourmet grocery store (McGinnis Sisters) where my hubby and I used to eat lunch when we were dating. They made a fabulous grilled sandwich with capiocola, provolone, artichoke hearts, lettuce, tomato and onion. It was yummy. I haven’t had one in 15 years I think. I wonder if they still make them??? Anyway, with that in mind I made this pizza for my hubby. I cut my French bread loaf in half and then sliced open each of the halves. It made 4 large pizzas.
On each piece I first layered the provolone cheese. I wanted everything to stick to it when it melted. Then I sliced up the capicola ham and some red onion. I had some artichoke salad from Aldi on hand as I use it alot. You can find it by the olives and dressings and it’s in a jar. Anyway, I cut some of the artichokes into smaller pieces and used some of the roasted red peppers. Lastly I grated some fresh Asiago cheese and sprinkled it on top. Bake for about 10 minutes and voila.
I think these would be nice to bring to a small party or get together. You can slice it up into pieces to make a great finger food. Best of all you could personalize these anyway you wanted.
