French Bread Pizzas with Olives, Peppers, & Fresh Mozzarella Cheese




  • 2 Sandwich Rolls
  • 1 8-Ounce Can Tomato Sauce
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 4 oz Fresh Mozzarella
  • ¼ tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Whole Dried Oregano
  • 1 oz Pitted Niçoise Olives
  • ½ oz Sweet Piquante Peppers
  • ½ lb Broccoli



1.Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. If necessary, peel the garlic, then roughly chop. Halve the rolls. Roughly chop the peppers and olives.



2.Place the broccoli florets on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.



3.While the broccoli roasts, in a small pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until softened. Add the tomato sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and oregano. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.



4.While the broccoli continues to roast, place the halved rolls on a separate sheet pan, cut side up. Evenly top with the sauce, cheese (tearing into bite-sized pieces before adding), and chopped peppers and olives. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.



5.Bake the pizzas 15 to 17 minutes, or until the rolls are lightly browned and the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven. Let stand at least 2 minutes before serving.



6.While the pizzas bake, in a large bowl, combine the honey (kneading the packet before opening), 1 teaspoon of water, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Add the roasted broccoli to the bowl; carefully stir to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the baked pizzas with the finished broccoli on the side. Enjoy!


This crowd-pleasing dish features doughy sandwich rolls layered with aromatic tomato sauce, creamy mozzarella, briny olives, and sweet pickled peppers—then baked in the oven to crispy perfection. On the side, a drizzle of red pepper-spiked honey adds sweet and spicy flavor to roasted broccoli.
