“We all know the “famous” frozen French bread pizzas you can pick up from the freezer section of the grocery store when you don't have time to cook. But, you might not know just how easy they are to make yourself—plus, they taste better, too. This recipe is the easy tomato-cheese variation, but you can let your creativity run free and pack your favorite ingredients—from mushrooms to pepperoni—onto your bistro baguettes. Have fun cooking!”
