Vegan French bread pizza?! This is one of my favorite ways to eat pizza these days. So as you can probably guess by its name, it’s pizza on a baguette instead of pizza dough. You just cut the baguette into halves lengthwise, spread the pizza sauce on top, and use any topping you want. We used broccoli, red and yellow bell pepper, mushrooms, vegan pepperoni, and vegan cheese. This seriously is vegan comfort food at its best!!
I really can’t get enough of this French bread pizza with veggies. We already tried several versions, but this one is by far our favorite. Mostly because it reminds us so much of our time at high school. We are high school sweet hearts and started dating in grade 12. Wow, how time flies! Now more than seven years later, we’re engaged and off to new adventures…
But back to the food. So, we had a similar version of this vegan French bread pizza at our school cafeteria. Of course with real pepperoni and cheese. I actually didn’t have it very often as I became vegetarian when I was 15, but it was a real “thing” at our school. Flo even had it like once or twice a week. So about a year ago when we were making pizza, Flo came up with the idea of veganizing the French bread pizza from our school days. And who am I to deny a grown man his pizza baguette, right? Haha!
So we started experimenting a bit with different toppings and absolutely loved this one. It’s super easy to make, incredibly delicious and crunchy, and ready in only 15 minutes. Serve it along with a green salad and you got a great and delicious meal.
Let me know if you give this vegan French bread pizza a try. As always, I love hearing from you guys! Have a great week!

Loved this french bread pizza! Childhood memories for me too! ;-)
I ALWAYS had French bread pizza as a kid, and I never even thought about making it vegan! Sounds so fun and yours look delicious!
I too use to eat the french bread style frozen pizza years ago, but this looks so much better!
Now this is a great idea – making pizza night even easier. Kids would really like this too, they can easily customize their portions. Great post!
Yes! It’s been ages since I’ve had French bread pizza – this is a must on my menu this month. Thanks Sina!
Looks delicious, can I ask what vegan cheese you use and where you can get vegan pepperoni? Thanks

I’ve never had french bread pizza before but I think it’s a great idea! Love these toppings and flavours :-)
Oh, this takes me back to my childhood for sure. We had French Bread Pizza all the time! I love it so much! Your version is definitely healthier than what we used to eat – and prettier too. I can’t wait to try this!
Oh, and now I feel really old. I had my TWENTY year high school reunion SEVERAL years ago. Ahhh!!

This reminds me of a frozen French bread pizza that I used to eat in high school. Your recipe is SO much healthier!

I love using different things as pizza crust! These look so good! Sometimes I even take out some of the bread in the middle sometimes and shove more toppings in. MMMMMM

I used to make something like this years ago and had forgotten all about it. Using a baguette instead of pizza dough saves so much time. I love your toppings!
Oh man. These look so much better than the frozen ones we used to get when I was a kid!
