Hasselback Pizza Bread


This Hasselback Pizza Bread is one of my kid’s favorite Saturday night dinners. And I love it too because it’s quick and easy to make and healthier than pizza take out. I like to know what has gone into my kid’s food so it’s easier to just make my own.

This pizza bread gets its name from the hasselback style – you know the one, the potatoes which are sliced but not cut through so you get a concertina effect. For this pizza bread, start by cutting vertical slits in a baguette, stopping just before you cut right through the bread so that the slices stay connected at the bottom. Put pizza sauce and cheese in between each slice and add a pepperoni and basil leaf to each one. Bake in the oven until the cheese melts!

To make Hasselback Pizza Bread, you will need the following ingredients:

Crustless pizza is better. This bread was hard to chew..if someone has recommendations for how to make it softer please update me :(

Madalynn Dreesen

Chanel Gungor

Easily one of my favorite meals to make since it takes no time at all and taste amazing!

Belinda Greenfield

If you don't eat it fresh the bread turns rock hard so be wary of how long you leave it out, leftovers don't work with this recipe.

Brisa Maceyko

Wasn't too sure this would be filling enough so I made some stuffed moroccan chicken too and had this as an appetizer :)

Leona Eghbali

Double or tripple the cheese if you want to have a party in your mouth! Fantastic recipe.

Kaycee Visco

Served it hot with sundried tomatos on the inside too, if you want to put some on the inside, bake it and while its hot use a sharpening rod or whatever you got near you to make a small hole in the middle of the bread and stick your tomatos in!


Simply delicious!
