French bread pizzas a quick lunch from the freezer

These french bread pizzas are quick to microwave from the freezer and cheap if you have lots of mouths to feed. These are basic ones but you can add your own toppingsto make them a little different! I make about 20 at a time and freeze them in freezer bags.

Cut french sticks and lay on a baking tray

Spread them with tomato puree and some dried herbs










Sprinkle with cheese and put in the oven

When ready wrap and freeze until needed!
