Artesian Bread Pizza

Deneece Gursky


So today I forgot to take something out of freezer for dinner. I got home from work and the kids and I were trying to decide what to have. Last night my mom brought home a fresh loaf of artesian sesame bread. It was a big rectangle of yummy smelling goodness. I decided to try to make a sicilian type pizza with it. My daughter Brittney was in charge of making sauce and then I put all the ingredients together and we came up with this. I can tell you I will never buy a sicilian pizza for 20 bucks at the pizza joint again! This was so amazing and we plan on making it a weekend staple! Sesame, garlic, tomatoes, onions mmmm it all comes together in a cheesy tasty amazing blend of pizza wonderfulness : )
