Preparation
  1. Prepare the Bread: Heat oven and bake La Brea Bakery French Demi Baguettes according to package directions. Bake time is 10-12 minutes.
  2. Remove baked baguettes from oven and allow to cool. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. When the baguettes are cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes, slice open each demi baguette lengthwise and lay flat on the baking sheet. You may need to slice off small pieces from the top side of each baguette to make sure it lays flat.
  4. Assemble Pizzas: Increase oven temperature to 400°F. Rub the cut open sides of each baguette with a clove of garlic. For pizzas with tomato sauce, spread 2 tablespoons pizza sauce on bread.
  5. Bake assembled French Bread Pizzas for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden browned in spots. Remove from oven and garnish with fresh basil, oregano, crushed red pepper, and/or salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
  6. To make French Bread Pizzas into appetizers, cut each French Bread Pizza into pieces.
