I love a recipe that can work for an easy dinner for two one night then be adjusted to become a family meal on another evening and then also provide a fantastic spread for your next party. What could possibly work for so many different occasions? A very simple, yet easy to change up, DIY French Bread Pizza Bar! I don’t know about you but I love pizza and being able to personalize it with toppings like fresh vegetables, assorted cheeses and other tasty add ons has my taste buds doing a happy dance. It is easy to find everything you need for this dinner at Walmart from the fresh produce to the cheese to the delicious Prego Farmers’ Market sauce.Prego Farmers' Market, Prego Farmers' Market at Walmart, French Bread Pizza Bar, #PickedAtPeak, #SocialFabric, #AD

Where Do They Get All That Flavor?

Just because a meal idea is easy doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice flavor. One of the most important components of pizza is the sauce and thanks to Prego Farmers’ Market® these French bread pizzas have picked at the peak flavor. You can find it in the spaghetti sauce aisle of your local Walmart and there are three tasty options; Classic Marinara, Tomato & Basil and Roasted Garlic. (I’m sure you all know by now that I usually make my own sauce from the garden but not every year yields a good crop – take this year for example. The hubby brought me exactly 10 tomatoes. Usually there are 10 boxes of tomatoes so I didn’t have the opportunity to can any sauce for the pantry. That leaves me relying on quality sauces from the store.) Prego Farmers’ Market® is made with the kind of stuff the hubby would bring me in from the garden or that you would find at your local farmer’s market; ripe tomatoes, garlic and fresh basil.

What’s for Dinner?

I’m sure you’d like to know how to go about putting together a DIY French Bread Pizza Bar – it’s easy and fun! You of course, will customize it to your tastes and  guests. For example, my recipe will show what I used for a dinner for two. I used toppings that I liked, some that my hubby liked and some that both of us liked. That way we could make our French bread pizzas our way.

Who doesn’t love vegetables on their pizza? When I went shopping at Walmart the produce department was full of beautiful, fresh vegetables. Many of them would have made perfect toppings for these little pizzas. My French bread pizza bar was for two so I didn’t want to go overboard on options so I ultimately ended up picking broccoli, onions and green peppers.

Set out the various toppings in assorted bowls. Make sure they are all cut into small, bite sized pieces.

Broil for 3- 4 minutes until the cheese is melted and the toppings are heated through. Don’t let them go too long or you will have crispy critters – don’t ask how I know. Just accept that experience is the mother of all teachers.

Delicious Fun at the Table

Imagine sitting down to a table set with bowls full of crisp, fresh vegetables plus an assortment of cheeses from salty to tart to creamy to rich. Add in meats from mild like chicken breast or to spicy like pepperoni. You can then build your perfect pizza!

But the most important topping is going to be the sauce. You want a sauce that can enhance what you add yet still have a presence. Prego Farmers’ Market® does just that. It has a wonderful tomato flavor that makes a perfect base for those fresh vegetables and all of that yummy cheese.

With all of the topping options you can mix and match which gives you a delightful variety on your plate. Just imagine the fun this would be a party.

BONUS: If you have leftovers from your French bread pizza bar you can use them in an easy dinner on the next night; just cook some penne or other pasta. Heat up any remaining sauce. Add the leftover vegetables and meats to the pasta, add the sauce, top with the leftover cheese and heat in a 350° oven until the cheese melts. An easy-peasy casserole to enjoy.
