  • 1 small loaf of bread, sliced open
  • 2 tablespoons Tomato sauce
  • 1/2 Portobello mushroom
  • 1/2 Yellow pepper
  • 1/2 cup Shredded cheese


  1. Take a loaf of bread and slice it open: If you are using submarine bread or a baguette you can slice it diagonally, if you are using a loaf of bread such as french bread you can use individual slices for your pizza. Begin topping your pizza by adding the sauce first. Then add your meats, vegetables and other toppings. When slicing vegetables, makes sure that you slice the vegetables thinly; thicker vegetables will take too long to cook and will not be ready at the same time as your bread (Remember that since you are making pizza with bread there is no uncooked dough, this means that your pizza will not be in the oven for very long). Once you have placed the vegetables onto the bread, top it with cheese.
  2. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 2.5 minutes. Then broil the recipe for 2.5 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown.
