Make Your Own French Bread Pizza: White Pizza

It's Throwback Thursday!

I'm featuring some past blog posts every Thursday that were either popular or updated or, in this Thursday's Throwback, both!

Recently I've kind of had a thing with white pizza. And by 'thing' I mean love affair. And by 'love affair' I mean I want to marry it. (Don't get jealous, Margherita Pizza, you're still my BFF.)

The thing is, I live with carnivores and traditionalists. They can't even make sense of white pizza.

So what is white pizza? It's a pizza with a white sauce, usually garlic or Alfredo sauce, instead of traditional red sauce. And then it's covered with different cheeses in a greasy, delicious mess of heaven.

You know what else is a thing in my house? Make Your Own French Bread Pizza Night! It's on our dinner menu rotation and everyone in the house loves it. Momma loves it because it's the easiest dinner to make, everyone can get involved and all is right with the world.

I posted about it here.

Make Your Own French Bread Pizza Night




A while ago I got a fab recipe for Alfredo that's also super easy. If you haven't noticed I'm not really into complicated. I usually have a bunch left over so when Make Your Own Pizza night rolled around I thought - Heeeey...Alfredo sauce...spinach...I'M A GENIUS!

So we made it again last week only my husband joined in and at the end added, "This is how we should do the pizza from now on."

It started with a loaf of French bread.


I really didn't need to take that picture but am I the only one who thinks a loaf of carby bread like this is just so pretty? 

Anyway, you cut it down the middle, length-wise, and then down the center so you get four pieces.


Then you add the sauce. Lola still chose red. Traditionalist.
This was mine.

Add bomb Alfredo sauce. Top with spinach.


Add Mozzarella cheese.


And feta. Oh, yes, I did.

Wait for everyone else to get done.


And bake at 350 degrees for about fifteen minutes. Then broil for about a minute and a half or until cheese bubbles and turns a tiny bit brown. Watch it! It will burn fast.

Then this will happen.

And all your dreams will come true.

  1. Ahhh this looks so good! I love anything that combines carbs and Alfredo sauce, including white pizza. Luckily, my boyfriend does too. (It's kind of a dealbreaker as far as I'm concerned.)

    1. If I could eat a diet entirely made up of pasta with a heavy rotation of Alfredo sauce I would be a happy girl.

    1. I know! And, I'm sorry, but homemade pizza dough is a really hard sell. French bread? I mean we already know it's going to be good. Who doesn't like French bread?

      Of course, feta. It was the right thing to do.

  6. We used to do this until Russ decided to go all gluten-free on me. I can't for the life of me find a gluten free bread recipe that I like well enough to eat. I'd rather give up bread than eat it. Maybe I can bring it back on the evenings he's working. The kids and I love making pizza and french bread pizza is one of my faves. :)

    1. Gluten free? No!!! But I have a feeling if you could find a gluten free bread or pizza dough, enough feta and cheese would make it good!

  7. I'm a carnivore and a reformed traditionalist but I think this white pizza looks amazing. I typically buy the frozen french bread pizzas but this looks so much better and very easy. I could eat pizza every day!

    1. Yes! It is so easy and you can change out the toppings. With this white pizza version I've even cut it up into smaller pizzas and served it at parties. So good!
