Creamy Ricotta Florentine French Bread Pizzas

“This french bread pizza contains no pizza sauce, instead you use ricotta, spinach, and the "toppings" and top it off with creamy provolone cheese. This makes a great dinner of fun party starter. This pizza is meant to be super chunky so don't cut your veggies or meat too small.(The pepperoni should look like tiny pieces of pie.) If you want your pizza filled more, just use less bread. For a party, I cut mine into slices about and inch or two inches thick. Easy to make meat-free! I usually make a greek salad to go along with it, the tang from the salad is great with the creamy texture of the pizza!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees.
  2. Cut french bread in half lengthwise, and hollow out, making a boat to fill with toppings.
  3. Squeeze the liquid from the spinach and add into a large bow. Then add ricotta, sausage, pepperoni, tomatoes, bell pepper, and parmesan cheese, mixing after each ingredient. Salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Place filling into french bread boats and top with slices of provolone cheese.
  5. Bake about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to bubble. MAKE SURE THE BOTTOMS DO NOT BURN! If they start to burn, quickly broil the top until cheese is melted and starts to bubble. Allow to sit about 4 to 5 minutes before cuting and serving.
