If you’ve ever had French bread pizza, you know how amazing this recipe is going to be! It’s seriously the best!
I posted a French bread pizza recipe a few years ago, back when it was one of our lunch staples. You see, I homeschool the kids. That means they are here for breakfast. And lunch. And dinner. Every day. Plus snacks in between.
Sometimes I feel like all I do is feed short people.
Anyway, I like easy food. We were on a major pizza bread kick back in the day and it was divine. Basically just French bread spread with pizza goodies.
Well, one day we were out of French bread, but I had a pack of sub rolls in the pantry, so I made pizza bread sandwiches and you guys. You guyyyyyyyssssssss.
We rarely make normal pizza bread anymore. I mean, sure, the original is good, but it’s nothing compared to these sandwiches!
I top them with garlic butter, so it’s like a cross between garlic bread, pizza, and a sub sandwich. How can that be a bad thing? IT CAN’T. 🙂
So, if you’re like me, feeling like all you do is feed your little people, I implore you to give this simple recipe a try. You could even make a big batch of these and call ’em football food. I mean, I have not met a man yet that wouldn’t devour these things!
We also make a lot of our sun-dried tomato pasta since it’s a one pot dish that’s super quick. I always seem to have a bowl of buffalo chicken salad and my favorite egg salad recipe in the fridge for quick lunches too. And, of course, my pressure cooker mac and cheese is a staple. We put smoked sausage in there for protein and everyone just devours the cheesy goodness! My homemade hamburger helper recipe is also a hit. Then, after I’ve cooked a million lunches for little people, I go drink a vodka collins. Mom life. 😉
Anyway, I hope you love this easy lunch as much as we do! Oh, and totally feel free to customize your sandwich with your favorite pizza toppings – olives, onions, mushrooms, sausage, you name it. You can’t go wrong here!
