Pizza Pizza

Have you seen this advertisement for Pizza Hut’s Garlic Bread Pizza?  You can get 9 slices of 1-topping pizzas for $8.99.  You can add up to 5 toppings, but of course they will charge you per additional topping.

You all know how “thrifty” I am (you say cheap-ass, I say thrifty) so here is a cheap and delicious version of their garlic bread pizza that you can make at home!  It is quick and so simple that a kid (or someone who is kitchen-challenged) could do it!

Step 1:  Start off with the following ingredients:

1-box of frozen garlic bread (usually 8 slices per box)

1-small jar of pizza sauce

1-package of shredded mozzarella cheese

variety of your choice of toppings (I used turkey pepperonis, mushrooms, onions, and jalapenos)

Step 2:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees

**Note:  Degrees Fahrenheit in case you have no idea how to use an oven in America**

Step 3:  Wash and chop up your veggies

clearly just put the jalapenos in this picture to give it some color..

**Note:  We used jalapenos that we canned ourselves but if you want to use jalapenos, use them from a can rather than fresh, otherwise they will be super crunchy on your pizza**

Step D:  Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil

Step 5:  Place desired amount of frozen garlic bread slices on the foiled covered cookie sheet

Step 6:  Spoon the pizza sauce onto the garlic bread

Step &:  Spread shredded cheese on top of the pizza sauce

**Note:  Putting it on this layer, rather than on top of your veggies makes the cheese soft and stretchy (think Ninja Turtles stretchy) instead of brown and crispy**

Step 8:  Load your pizza up with toppings!

All of my ingredients are hidden by my pepperonis

Step 9:  Pop this tray in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

Cheese should be melted and bread should start turning a golden brown (or just looks appetizing to you…you all know how a pizza should look when you are about to eat it)

Step 10:  Remove from oven and let the pizzas cool for a couple minutes

If you don’t wait, you will burn the bageezes out of your tongue, roof of mouth, and possibly your lips, causing you to not be able to taste these pizzas (or anything for the next 3 days)


Step 11:  Stuff your face with all the garlicky goodness!

Easy, right?

Overall this recipe takes about 20 minutes with preparation and cook time.  Way better than waiting for an hour for the pizza-delivery guy!

Plus it is a fraction of the cost!  (who doesn’t like saving money?!)

I think it would be a great thing to do for kid’s parties or something and have each kid add their own ingredients to personalize their pizza!

If you decide to make these, let me know how you like them!
