Easy French Bread Pizza

Journal as: 1 1/2 slices bread + 1 ounce regular or low-fat cheese + 1/4 cup vegetables without added fat

This is a quick alternative to frozen pizza. They're easy for kids to assemble; then Mom or Dad can broil them.

2 French-bread sandwich rolls, split in half
Olive oil or canola cooking spray
1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
1/2 cup bottled pizza sauce (or substitute marinara sauce)
3/4 cup shredded, reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
3/4 cup shredded, part-skim mozzarella cheese
Assorted vegetable toppings:
Chopped green onions
Tomato slices
Zucchini slices
Mushroom slices
Artichoke hearts
Sliced olives

  • Preheat broiler.
  • Spray the tops of the French-bread roll halves with canola or olive oil cooking spray, then sprinkle the Italian seasoning over the top of each.
  • Broil bread halves until lightly brown on top (watch carefully).
  • Spread 1/8 cup pizza sauce over each half, then sprinkle 1/4 of the cheddar cheese and 1/4 of the mozzarella over each bread half.
  • Arrange any vegetables you choose on top of the cheese.
  • Broil until the cheese is melted and bubbly (about 2 minutes).
