It is no secret that we love where we live, and one of the reasons is all of the wonderful places to eat in the area. One of our new favorite places is Three Wise Men Brewery. Not only do they have wonderful beer and service, but their pizza is amazing! They use all local toppings as well as make the cracker thin crust with their IPA. All of the toppings are so unique and fresh that it definitely keeps us not only wanting to come back for more, but also have cravings for it.
I really wanted that pizza tonight, but instead I figured to go low key and stay at home and use up some of the ingredients we have in the fridge. We had leftover pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce, and garlic bulbs which were a great start to a pizza. I decided to roast the garlic whole in the oven. This has become one of our favorite toppings ever since we tried it at Three Wise Men. Then, I decided to go over to a wonderful little market by our house and get fresh sausage (sweet Italian for the hubby and turkey Italian for me) and a French loaf. With all these choices we were both able to make our own creations to enjoy. The recipe below is merely a jumping off point. Please make it your own and go crazy with the toppings and sauces, but make sure to get hearty enough bread to withstand the pizza.
French Bread Pizza
1 loaf french bread, halved
1 jar pizza sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1 bulb roasted garlic
½ lb sausage cooked
20 pepperoni slices
Any other toppings that sound delicious to you!
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Spread the pizza sauce on top of the french bread slices, then top that with the cheese, sausage, pepperoni,and roasted garlic. Bake the pizzas on a cookie sheet for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the top of the cheese is bubbly and browned.
