Crunchy Bread Pizza

CRUNCHY BREAD PIZZA…..Mmmm brings out the kid in you!
Crrrrunchy base, light airy texture, yet robust enough for absorbing layers of flavor. An absolute crowd pleaser!
Start with a good quality freshly baked bread loaf! It could be a French or Italian baguette or a Ciabatta roll! Slice it from the middle and flip it open. If you don’t have access to speciality bread, try to get a regular loaf of bread…but one that is not sliced. Slice it thickly from the middle, sliding the knife from right to left to get two large bread bases.

Next spread a thick layer of Basil Pesto. Top with a layer of sliced fresh mozzarella or shredded mozzarella. Dot with the prepped tomatoes and some sliced black olives. Sprinkle salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, fresh basil/rosemary and some pizza seasoning. A final sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and it’s ready to go in a 425F preheated oven. Alternatively you can grill this on your BBQ too. Grill till the bottom is crisp n golden and the top is melting cheese….serve immediately!

For prepping tomatoes
Slice cherry tomatoes/any other tomatoes you have, place them face down on a paper towel for 20 minutes till most of their fluid drains away. Use as topping over pizza.

Note: If you don’t have access to Mozzarella or Parmesan cheese, you can use any other cheese like Amul, Kraft etc.
