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 years 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 forgetting them both to try new foods.
