Sourdough Bread Pizza


Remember those Stouffers french bread pizzas? I remember eating that to snack on after school. Just heat them up in the oven for a few minutes and you've got yourself a personalized pizza on a baguette. I remember I used to pick off the pepperoni pieces and save them for last.

Anyway...I (sort of) had a craving for them recently. To delve back into my teenagehood of memories from after school snacks. I decided to revisit that memories by making myself a sourdough bread pizza. Since i had given up meat for lent, I was lucky enough to have a can of sardines in the pantry. And a can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes.  The sardines covered the "peppeproni" part. Also, since bread is so common in most households, you got no excuse not to make pizza anytime you want.

Makes 4 pizza slices



Sourdough Bread Pizza

4 1-inch thick slices sourdough bread
1 c diced fire-roasted tomato
1 c shredded cheese - your choice
extra virgin olive oil

optional topping:
sardines
pepperoni
sausage
veggies
mushrooms

Preheat your oven to to 375˚F

Lay the pieces of bread on an ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle some of the cheese, then the fire-roasted tomato and any additional topping you desire.

Baked in the oven for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bread is crisp.

Ooh - this looks yummy! I like that you put it on slices of bread, rather than the length of it.

Mmmm I'm loving the use of sardines and I am all about reminiscing about after-school snacks!

Craving is the key driver for food ingenuity! Actually, for me it was always some sort of sweet topping on bread: cinnamon sugar, sweetened condensed milk. Now, I'd totally go for this quickie pizza!

As someone who hasn't had much luck making good sourdough pizza crust from scratch, this is a perfect solution! I love shortcuts especially when they make sense like this. Thanks, Jenn.

I love the idea of a pizza on sourdough bread, sounds so good! I've been doing a lot of pizzas on naan bread lately and now will try one with the sourdough bread!

easy and delicious pizza!

That's funny how you save the pepperoni for last, that's what I do with pepperoni too! I have to admit I'm not a huge sardine fan, but I can never say no to pizza :)

Did you eat them one at a time or put them together like a sandwich? GREG

Nice, I bet the sourdough added a great dimension to it.

Easy easy pizza solution. Plus, you can take care of a pizza crazing without having an entire pizza in front of you!

Yum, yum, yum. I wish I had this for lunch today.

OMG, used to LOVE those Stouffer's pizzas! Especially the pepperoni. :) Had forgotten all about them! I'm now a devout Amy's frozen pizza follower.

I remember those amazing Stouffer's pizzas! They were so delicious and full of horrible ingredients that I loved back then!

Super creative Jenn!

The boy and I often do this as a quick dinner and is a very good way of going through leftover scraps in the fridge.

This is such a great blog!!! Really makes me hungry just reading and looking at the pictures : ) I recently baked my first loaf of bread and it was incredible!!! I used a starter my friend told me about. It's from Sourdough's International and now I have to spread the word! I loved it. Definitely going to order more when it comes the time.
