Iggy's French Bread Pizza

Baguette Pizza

I LOVE bread!  Every time I head over to Whole Foods, my carriage auto pilots it's way to the fresh bread aisle.  I am particularly fond of the baguettes from Iggys..I can't keep my hands off! It's more often than not that I grab a fresh baguette and throw it in my cart.  Never on my list, yet almost always finding its way back to the test kitchen. 

Today though, I actually have a plan. The fridge is still packed with mis en place from last night's pizza class.  So I'm going to grab a loaf, slice it up and shred some cheese.  Baguettes make an extraordinary base for pizza!  

This technique is quite simple. Slice the bread, place the slices on a sheet tray.  You may want to give them a little press with your fingers, just enough to give the toppings a little better landing area.  Then,  simply top like you would any other pizza.  Remember less is more! 

After pre-heating the Baking Steel at 400 F for about 30 minutes, you can place the sheet tray directly on top.  Bake for 5 or 6 minutes, remove and eat!  And next time your shopping at Whole Foods, think "time to create some baguette pizza love with Baking Steel.
