When you absolutely, positively, MUST have pizza — and I know that urge hits at least a couple of times a month – consider the easiest version I’ve ever made.

Start with a loaf of French bread as the base, a few pantry and refrigerator staples, and you’ll have dinner ready before you can bribe one of the kids to set the table.

There’s no need for takeout with this easy solution. Make a big green salad to go with it, and cut up some fruit to stick on the plate as well.

Recipe: Easy French Bread Hawaiian Pizza

Summary: Hawaiian Pizza, complete with ham, pineapple and gooey mozzarella, gets a fast weeknight makeover with a simple loaf of French bread as the base. No need for takeout!


  • 1 (1-pound) loaf French bread (large loaf, not a skinny baguette)
  • 1 (20-ounce) can pineapple chunks in juice, drained (drink the juice or save it!)
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans petite diced tomatoes in juice
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano (or 1 teaspoon dried)
  • Fresh basil cut into a chiffonade (shred)
  • 4 ounces chopped ham (small dice)
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat oven to 425 F degrees. Get out a baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Cut loaf of bread in half widthwise, and then split each half into 2 planks, so you will have 4 pizzas.
  3. Drain the pineapple (save the juice and drink it!). Drain the tomatoes in a small colander, for 5-10 minutes. While the tomatoes are draining, open the mail, pour a glass of wine and listen to your voicemail. For gosh sakes, don’t sit down at the computer to look at email or you’ll never get dinner on the table!

  7. Bake for about 10 minutes (kitchen will smell wonderful as it bakes!). If it isn’t toasty enough for you, turn the broiler on and broil for a minute or so. Don’t walk away or you’ll be sorry.
  8. Remove from oven and serve.
  9. Serves 4.
