Did you know that (most) Jimmy John’s will give out any bread they didn’t use the day before for a discounted price? Since my college days, I’ve been taking advantage of this awesome deal. I used to make all sorts of things with it in college like garlic bread or, my go-to-college-student-meal French bread pizza!
Nowadays I make more complicated dishes like banana bread pudding from this day old bread, but the pizza bread is by far my favorite use for the bread. For just fifty cents* a loaf, it’s totally worth it to grab some on your next visit.
To make your pizza bread, cut a loaf down the center, then spread a tablespoon or two of your favorite pizza sauce onto the bread. You don’t want it to be on too thick, or else it’ll make the bread soggy. I then just placed some slices of fresh mozzarella cheese on my pizzas, but you can load ’em up with whatever ingredients you enjoy: from pepperonis to mushrooms, spinach to sausage! Just bake the pizza bread until the cheese is nice and melted. I garnished mine with some homegrown basil, for a suuuuper simple take on a margarita pizza. This whole meal probably cost less than $3 – totally worth every penny!
