The Hasselback techinique--making crosswise cuts in a vegetable, fruit or in this case, a baguette, to create space for adding in additional flavors like cheese--turns whole-grain bread into a fast and easy pizza in this fun recipe. We like classic pepperoni and basil, but feel free to squeeze in your favorite toppings.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with foil.

  • Cut vertical slits in baguette, stopping just before you cut through so that the slices stay connected at the bottom. Space the slits about 1/2 inch apart. Place the baguette on the prepared baking sheet. Using a small spoon, dollop a scant teaspoon pizza sauce into each slit. Divide cheese among the slits and add 1 slice pepperoni and 1 basil leaf to each. Bake until the cheese melts and the bread is toasted, 10 to 15 minutes.
