Stuffed French Bread Pizza

This Stuffed French Bread Pizza is an awesome and quick way to make pizza which is perfect for serving to a crowd! They are super filling and so easy to make, plus I’m sharing my kitchen hack on how to keep the tears away when slicing an onion! 

If you want to make pizza, but want it to be a bit different from the usual round, flat pizza, try making this Stuffed French Bread Pizza! If you’re having a party, simply prep a few baguettes ahead of time, and when you’re ready to eat, pop them in the oven for 20-30 minutes for a cheesy, filling meal!

Here are the needed ingredients:

  • fresh baked baguette
  • pizza sauce
  • tomatoes
  • mozzarella cheese
  • onion
  • basil
  • pepperonis

These seriously cannot be easier to make. You simply take a fresh baguette, hollow out the inside, fill it with a mixture of tomatoes sauce, diced tomatoes, and cheese. Cover with MORE cheese and top with pepperonis, sliced onion, and a chiffonade of basil. Bake in the oven 

Ready for a quick tip kitchen hack? To keep from crying when slicing an onion, refrigerate the onion for about 10-15 minutes prior. Why do you cry when you slice an onion? It’s something about how the onion has enzymes and sulfenic acids that are normally separate, but when you slice and dice the enzymes and acid combine which creates some form of gas which floats up to your eye, mixes with the water in your eyes and forms sulfuric acid and makes you cry! But if you refrigerate the onion, you stop the enzymes and sulfenic acids from mixing. 

So go ahead and slice up some onion and add it your pizza!
