One of the things we are enjoying about our move to Texas are the amazing skies we see. Sunrises and sunsets are absolutely incredible. Well, I imagine the sunrises are as incredible as the sunsets…I’m never awake early enough to see those.
Another thing we are enjoying are the crazy storms that pop up out of nowhere. The other day was hot and sunny all day until about 5:45 pm. Then the wind began to blow and these dark clouds swirled in the sky. On one side of the sky it was blue and clear and the other side had tall dark clouds. In front of all that was the longest, lowest rainbow I have ever seen.
As we stood there admiring the sky from the Target doorway, we also noticed carts whipping around the parking lot hitting cars. Seriously people, there are cart corrals for keeping those things under control.
Yes, that is one of our biggest pet peeves. You should hear our conversations when we see people just leave them anywhere they want. Ok, so maybe those conversations should not be shared…
Let’s just move onto to talking about dinner! We do pizza night quite often at our house. Sometimes that pizza is carryout and sometimes it is homemade pizza dough with our favorite toppings. But then there are those times when I want homemade pizza without the work.
Did you know that you could use a loaf of French bread as your pizza base when you want pizza in a hurry? Yup, it works like a charm. Just slice it in half long ways and top it with your favorite meats, veggies, and cheese. It is seriously ready to go in the oven in about 5 minutes.
Since this BLT Chicken Braid always disappears in a hurry, I knew those same toppings would work for a quick and easy pizza too. Luckily, we had just bought a rotisserie chicken a few days ago, and I had some leftovers to use up. Those ready to go chickens from Sam’s always help me have dinner ready a lot faster!
Sure I could roast my own, but I prefer to pay $5 for an already hot and ready one. Anyone else with me on that?
As soon as this meal came out of the oven, our kids were hovering around waiting to snag some pieces of this BLT Chicken Alfredo French Bread Pizza.
Usually I take a little longer staging photos and making the food look yummy, but when you have 3 hungry teenagers staring hangrily at you, you get the memo and hurry!

I made this for lunch for my family and made two of them. They were a big hit with everyone. I used Tyson frozen diced chicken and it worked great. One of the loaves of bread I left off all the veggies as my granddaughter and her friends do not like veggies. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly for the other loaf. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you for the great recipe.
I don’t have any Alfredo will the Spaghetti Sauce work on it
Yes, that would be fine too. I hope you enjoy the pizza.
The recipe calls for spinach. I'm not the biggest fan of spinach. Given that it is a BLT, will using lettuce work as well?
Lettuce doesn't cook like spinach does. If you really can't handle the spinach, I would just leave it out. But honestly, with all the cheese and sauce going on in this pizza, you won't taste the spinach.
Okay, thank you!
I second that. Try the spinach
Love the BLT French bread - have made it often and recently used Turkish bread for the base and the filling recipe blended in really well.

What a yummy, cheesy dinner! Beautiful sunsets and sunrises are the best!

Those $5 rotisserie chickens at Sam's are a life saver!! Your storms sound a lot like the ones we get here in Colorado. Sunny all day then out of nowhere a storm pops up. And these pizzas look and sound soooo good!
No further staging needed! These pizzas look PLENTY yummy on their own. Ideas for quick, delicious dinners are always appreciated. 🙂
I think this will be Friday night's movie meal. But I will have to use a French roll just to avoid the temptation to eat on it all night long! Sounds delicious.
Wishes for tasty dishes,

This looks so delicious! We used to make french bread pizzas all the time when we were little, I have not done this in so long! Thanks for the inspiration!
Also I used to live in Texas and unfortunately had to get up early enough a bunch of days to see the sunrise. I can report they are just as beautiful. One of the things I miss!
Hi, the pizza looks beautiful, i am definitely trying this out asap.
Bread pizza! Love the idea! Looks good 🙂
