I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Chris and I drove up to Healdsburg this past weekend and indulged ourselves in some serious seafood tapas at our favorite restaurant (pictures posted here). Afterwards, we went to our favorite bakery up there to pick-up some sweet treats. By the time when we got home, I was feeling extremely lazy. But I still have to get dinner on the table. So, I threw something together quickly. I love those meals where it’s easy to assemble, takes no time to make and is easy to clean up. Sometimes, you just need those no-brainer recipes in your repertoire. Enjoy the week.
- 1 loaf of ciabatta bread, split in half lengthwise
- 1 cup of your favorite tomato sauce
- 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese (feel free to add more or less to suit your palate)
- 16 slices of salami (I used calabrese salami)
- grated parmesan cheese
- fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped
- red pepper flakes
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Place bread on the baking sheet and spread tomato sauce evenly over the top. Top the sauce with cheese and salami and then a bit more cheese.
Bake for 6-10 minutes to melt the cheese. Turn the oven off and turn the broiler on. Brown the top slightly, about 1-2 minutes. Cut into 2-3 inch pieces. Sprinkle grated parmesan cheese, chopped parsley and red pepper flakes on top. Allow the pizza to cool slightly before serving.

That pizza looks really yummy!
Thanks Nancy! 🙂
My mom used to make a similar dish for us on days when she felt lazy (or if there were leftovers that needed to be used up); she called it “Poor Man’s Pizza”! I never think of making it, but I should!!! Looks delicious.
A super satisfying and delicious meal!
Can you have this for breakfast? This looks so amazing and comforting!
Of course you can! 🙂
Pizza is one of those things that I can eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I don’t know why I love it so much, especially the marinara sauce versions. And in my experience, “poor man’s” anything ends up curing any comfort food cravings you might have.
I know you love it so I’ll make it more often. 🙂
Heavenly. What a fantastic dish
Gotta love the lazys when you get back from all that sweet/bakery shopping! I love salami…and especially this recipe!

Sounds like you had a great day. You even make french bread pizza look amazing, Anne! It looks delicious.
Thanks Marcie! 🙂
Bread and salami, a full meal in my opinion!
🙂 Thanks Paula!
I love how you “throw something together”! I’d be more than thrilled to chomp into this for my dinner. It looks delicious!
You’re so sweet, thanks Monica! 🙂
I love this easy peasy pizza recipe. No need to make pizza dough at all. My mom used to make pizzas from regular sandwich bread. Really lovely idea.
I should do more pizza recipes, they’re so easy to put together. Especially since they sell ready-made doughs at my market.
This looks wonderful, Anne. At one time, I made french bread pizza frequently. It’s quick, easy to prepare, and there’s no cardboard box to try to squeeze into the fridge. Love that you use salami, one of the major food groups. 🙂
I know.. I hate having to toss out those large cardboard boxes whenever I order them from restaurants. Might as well make them at home. You can throw whatever you want on there. Have a good rest of the week John! 🙂
Drool… I think my kids and I like to eat this for lunch this week! Kids love salami…I have to get good ones from butcher soon so I can try this one. Looks so delicious!
Thanks Nami! 🙂

Pizza is one food I will never get sick of no matter how much I eat it. Looks awesome!
Thanks Ashley! 🙂
Looks like an easy & delicious recipe – winner!
Anne, what a simple and tasty meal…looks fabulous!
Have a lovely week 😀
Thanks Juliana. Have a great rest of the week! 🙂
Looks so good.. I love french Bread pizza… it reminds me of my childhood, my mom would make it because we didn’t have pizza places near us.
Thanks Honey. They do bring back childhood memories for me too. I used to have the frozen stuff as a kid and thinking how tasty they were. haha! 😀
My mom used to make us french bread pizzas all the time! So good and so easy.
They are, aren’t they? My parents used to buy the frozen stuff from the market when I was a kid and I thought it was the best thing out there. 😀
Oh my goodness! These look so delicious! I wish I could grab one from the screen and eat it now. Pinned!
Thank you so much Julie! 🙂
This very quick put-together looks fantastic Anne!
I’ve never seen a more popular pizza post!
