How To Make Pizza Bread {Can Be Made Gluten Free}

by Katie on June 23, 2014

Having to eat gluten-free can be pretty difficult sometimes, and I miss real pizza more than words can describe, but this amazing Pizza Bread is changing all that for me!

I’ve made gluten-free pizza crust and it’s pretty good, but my mom introduced me to this pizza bread she makes. WOW! It’s so wonderful and tastes like normal pizza bread.  I hadn’t had Pizza Bread in so long I kind of forgot I was missing out on it.

If you have to eat gluten-free you are going to love this! If you don’t eat gluten-free you are going to love this and your pocket book will be heavier because you won’t have to pay $4.29 for two little baguettes (but don’t worry…they are totally worth that $4.29).

Let me introduce you to this wonderful product – Udi’s Baguettes! They are wheat, dairy, soy and nut free – and taste like normal bread!!!!! If you aren’t gluten-free you will just substitute your favorite french baguette here.

(Udi’s didn’t pay me to say how much I love these baguettes. In fact, they have no clue who I am.)

Here’s a picture of the items I used for my pizza bread! Can anyone tell I love Aldi…everything is from there except the bread.

You can use whatever toppings you want. My mom used fresh basil, different cheeses and pepperoni from the deli. I admit they were definitely tastier, but this is the el-cheapo cutting back version.

Pizza Bread Ingredients

The first thing you do is thaw them enough to slice them. Then you want to roll them out with a rolling pin. I didn’t do this the first time I made them, but mom does hers this way and I really think they are better for some reason?!

When she made hers she pulled some of the bread out so it would be more of a crust and I snapped, “NOOOOOO, you aren’t disposing of that expensive bread, are you?!?!?!?”. I put it right back in the baguette. We can’t be wasting that precious bread.

I guess I didn’t get my extremist thrifty behavior from her. It must have come from a prior generation.

Next you add some sauce, cheese and toppings. I added pepperoni under and over the cheese…we were living it up that night!!

I used this pizza sauce recipe that I posted a long time ago. I love it because it’s so easy and really does taste better than a canned sauce. Plus it’s literally takes one minute to make. I make a big batch of it and freeze it in freezer bags.

Pizza Bread Recipe

Bake on a baking sheet or stone at 350 until done and cheese is melted! And there you have it…an amazingly delicious dinner that you will not believe is gluten-free!!
