We have been so busy lately with school, swimming lessons for both kids, and my daughter’s micro soccer league two nights a week. I have been looking for quick and easy recipes for lunches and dinners. I found a par baked loaf of ciabatta bread at Trader Joes and thought it would be excellent for a panini but at the last minute decided to use up leftover turkey pepperoni and sauce to make pizza bread for lunch. It was really simple to make and my kids loved it.
- Ciabatta bread
- Pizza sauce
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
- Turkey pepperoni
- Pineapple chunks
- Dried basil (not pictured)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the par baked ciabatta bread on a baking tray and bake for 4-5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Slice in half lengthwise and spread pizza or marinara sauce on each half of the bread. Sprinkle with mozzarella on each side then top with turkey pepperoni, pineapple and a bit of dried basil.
