Garlic Bread Pizza with Texas Toast

Garlic Bread Pizza made with Texas Toast and Spaghetti Sauce.

The Best Garlic Bread Pizza

If you’re like me and you love pizza, you can’t go wrong with this simple Garlic Bread Pizza recipe. It’s practically fool proof. Best of all. You can purchase all of the ingredients pre-made and it’s cheap to do so. I use frozen garlic Texas Toast, which already has the seasoned butter spread on every individual slice and bottled spaghetti sauce. Now all you need is grated Mozzarella cheese and pepperoni or what ever your favorite toppings may be.

Frozen Garlic Bread Pizza

I always preach about using fresh ingredients when making my recipes but this Garlic Bread Pizza is an exception. Purchasing pre-made Texas Toast isn’t just smart it’s more efficient, for several reasons. It’s cheap and pre-made with a spread of butter that already includes fresh garlic and herbs. Plus, bread freezes so well, after it’s baked you can’t even tell that it wasn’t made fresh. So, you can purchase a french loaf for cheap and fork out money for all of the other ingredients or just pay for one product that costs less in the long run.

You can also re-freeze these Texas Toast Pizzas if you want save the baking for later. That way these are ready go, like a frozen burrito, on demand. I purchase half size zip lock bags and package each one and freeze in batches for my kids, when they want a quick snack. They can be cooked in a toaster oven or baked in a traditional, even nuked in a microwave if you don’t mind the bread a little soggy.

Garlic Bread Pizza Toppings

Once you decide what bread you want to use, to make your Garlic Bread Pizza, you’re off and running. I often use bottled Spaghetti sauce in place of pizza sauce but you can use barbecue sauce or even cheese whiz or nacho cheese. If you think I’m kidding, give it a try or look up my Nacho Cheese Pizza recipe and see for yourself. I use mayonnaise for my Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza and it’s phenomenal.

Now you just need to choose and your toppings. I usually keep it simple for my kids and just add pepperoni. But, believe me when I tell you, just the cheese is enough if you don’t want to add anything else. Otherwise the skies the limit.

This recipe was one of the first video recipes I ever filmed and posted. I got the idea from some Pizza Hut adds that were running back in 2012. If you’d like to see the original post, video and recipe, CLICK HERE!

Garlic Bread Pizza

Garlic Bread Pizza, What’s the big deal right?

I saw this advertised in the paper last week when Pizza Hut introduced their Garlic Bread Pizza.  my first thought was, “Man, they’re gettin’ desperate”, but the more I thought about how much I love Garlic Bread and how much I love Pizza I decided to try making it myself.  I mean, I already know I make a bad ass pizza so I figured I might as well combine the two for myself and see how it turns out!  LET ME TELL YOU, Garlic Bread Pizza is THE BOMB!  Honestly though, I still haven’t tried the Hut’s yet but I’m definitely doing this in my own kitchen again and you can do it to.  Whether you want to dig in and make everything from scratch or if you want to keep it as simple as possible and just buy a few pre made ingredients, you’re going to love Garlic Bread Pizza.
For those that want to keep it simple and maybe even have some fun with the kids, watch my video.  Then pick up some pre made sliced buttered and seasoned garlic bread from your local grocery, a jar of your favorite spaghetti or pizza sauce, some Pepperoni or favorite toppings, and some Mozzarella cheese with Provolone mix.  Layer it on a pan, bread, sauce, cheese then toppings and bake 500 degrees f. for 6 to 8 minutes.  Once you try your own Garlic Bread Pizza you’ll understand and you won’t regret it!
