  • 2 packages Pillsbury Simply French Bread refrigerated dough
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic or 1-2 cloves
  • grated Parmesan cheese to taste
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1 cup pizza fillings such as pepperoni slices, browned ground sausage, peppers, onions
  • pizza sauce if desired (to be served on the side, to dip in)


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Dice up your pizza fillings, and place into a bowl with the seasonings, cheeses, garlic and flour.
  • Open up the refrigerated dough packages, stretch them out to appropriate size, and take a serrated knife and slice down the middle, lengthwise, about 2/3 of the way through the dough to create an opening.
  • Using a rolling pin, work into the opening to create a "well" large enough to hold the pizza toppings.
  • Add pizza toppings into the "wells" on the bread; pinch and press seams firmly together to hold the ingredients in.
  • Place seams side down, moving together side by side, and twist each loaf around the other.
  • Cut a slit in each top loaf to allow steam to escape, and place in the oven for about 30 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes; cut into 16 slices.
  • Warm pizza sauce just before ready to serve to serve on the side.
