This Meatball French Bread Pizza is a family favorite. It’s ready in under 20 minutes and is easy to make ahead of time too.
Lately my little brood has been clamoring for pizza but I have not had the energy to make pizza. My little guy is 3 months old now and I’m just barely feeling like a semi-normal human being but making pizza has just been too much. While trying to appease the masses I realized we hadn’t done french bread pizzas in forever.
French bread pizzas are the perfect way to speed up the time it takes to make pizza! I can’t believe I had forgotten all about french bread. I feel like I should begin an ode to french bread but that might be a bit much. French bread is good for so many things like Sausage Stromboli Sandwiches or Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake, or you know pizza!
I used frozen turkey meatballs that I snagged once from Costco. When I feel up to it I make my own meatballs but I liked the neutral flavor of these ones so I could use them for Sweet and Sour Meatballs as well. Versatility is important my friends!
I halved them because otherwise the pizza would have been impossible to eat. As it was my 5 year old was complaining his mouth wasn’t big enough to eat it. His mouth is sure big enough for too many other things though 😉
This is also a fantastic recipe to make with kids because it is so basic. Only assembling, nothing complicated. I try to get my kids to come and help me as often as I can in the kitchen to keep them excited about food. It’s done wonders for my picky eater and for getting them both to try new foods.
