On average, how much time do you spend making dinner for your family?

30 minutes? 45 minutes? Longer?

This is a good one to have up your sleeve for those dinner emergencies. (We all have them!)

Money-saving tip: Scour your fridge and freezer for pizza toppings. If you have to buy toppings at the grocery store, take a trip around the grocery store salad barYou can often find delicious ingredients like chopped bacon, blue cheese, Feta cheese, etc., for less than what it would cost to buy these ingredients individually.

Alternative Pizza Crusts

These pizzas are just fun, don’t you think? The use of frozen garlic bread as a crust allows you to make homemade pizza without all the fuss. I’ve also experimented with many other alternative pizza crusts. Here are some other options to try, if you don’t have frozen garlic bread on hand:

Garlic Bread Pizzas
Yield: 12 pizzas

Garlic Bread Pizzas

You can use individual garlic bread pieces, like I did here. Or you can use a frozen loaf of garlic bread. If you're going with the loaf option, simply put all of the toppings on and bake for approximately 15 minutes.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes


  • 1 package frozen garlic bread slices
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 cup desired toppings (I used pepperoni, onions, mushrooms, chopped tomatoes, and green peppers)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Place garlic bread slices on a large baking sheet. Top each slice with a scant tablespoon of pizza sauce, cheese, and desired toppings.
  2. Bake pizzas for 12 to 15 minutes, or until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted.

    Yum, Yum, Yum. I love Cole Garlic Bread so much. Such a weakness. I could eat a whole loaf with spaghetti easily. Need to watch the calories though! Thanks for the idea.

      I’m the same way! I haven’t had much success making my own homemade garlic bread that tastes like the frozen stuff.. Maybe I’ll do some experimenting!
