Garlic Bread Pizza

Who wants something easy? When it comes to cooking, I think we all do every once in a while (or always, actually). Well, that’s what these garlic bread pizzas are–easy! 

A few weeks ago, I wasn’t feeling great. So the last thing from my mind was, “What should I cook today?” It was more like, “Why should I get out of bed today?” or “Do I really have to put on pants?” 

Sometimes we’re the most creative at our laziest, though…and I came up with these delicious babies.

The great thing about these is not just that they’re easy…but you can personalize each of them. Zach loves ham and pineapple on pizza (because he’s an insane person) and I hate it…obviously. I love tomatoes and mushrooms, which Zach hates. With garlic bread pizzas, we can both get what we want without having to compromise. There are a lot of things in life I am more than happy to compromise on, but pizza isn’t one of them.

Zach has elected to throw in his two cents, as well:

These are very interesting. I think it’s obvious in hindsight how much these should work, being so garlicky and all. Usually, I’m not the biggest fan of these frozen garlic toast things. They’re kind of greasy and salty in the wrong way for me. But the addition of the sauce and the pepperoni mellow that out a lot for me, and I found that the tastes complemented each other. That is different from the typical role of these pieces of garlic bread, providing texture and a much different taste from a pasta dish.

And now that I’m seeing the post…hell yeah pineapple and ham! Why didn’t I think of that when Chelsey was making these? Little ham and pineapple garlic pizzas sound awesome. Don’t call me crazy; it’s popular! Tomato and mushroom, though? Not my bag. Tomatoes have that funny taste that doesn’t work in most cases for me, and mushrooms are just there. I do like the mushroom’s in Chelsey’s pizza soup, because it adds extra meatiness. But mushrooms on a pizza just don’t work for me. I wouldn’t say I HATE them, really. I just don’t prefer them.

On the sauce note, though, I like going with something a little spicier, like a vodka sauce. Delicious, thick, and spicy would go awesome with the garlic butter. Next time we have these, maybe we should try it with that?

I think homemade garlic bread slices could make these very good, too. Get a nice loaf of bread, put a little garlic butter on it, and bake it in a pizza. In the pinch, though, these are very nice! You do run into a bit of a problem in that they aren’t as substantial as proper pizza, and you don’t usually have a side dish with pizza-based dinners. I bet a light soup would go very well with these, something like the cream of pumpkin soup. It’s kind of sweet, so it would balance the flavors more, and it will add that extra bit to make the meal feel more full!

What do you make when you don’t feel like cooking?
