¨Better than Delivery¨ Baguette Pizzas | Done in Under 30 Minutes
If you love pizza as much as I do, these ¨Better than Delivery¨ Baguette Pizzas will rock your world. Since we are using baguettes instead of pizza dough, they come together super fast and they have the most incredible texture & flavor.
The secret to these baguette pizzas, is to carve out the soft bread in the inside of the baguette. That way you end up with a crispy outer shell and you can fill them up with as much sauce and toppings as you like. Plus they don´t have that typical bread flavor, like other bread based pizzas.
I used a combination of fresh mozzarella and Manchego cheese to make these baguette pizzas. But you can use whatever cheeses you like. I also used very simple toppings. But again, you can add whatever toppings you love. All toppings work great here, no rules!
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: As stated before, the secret is to carve out the soft bread from the baguettes. I used a spoon, as it makes it very easy. I also made a very simple homemade pizza sauce (recipe for that below), but you can use store-bought pizza sauce to make things even faster.
