Mushroom-Gouda French Bread Pizzas

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by VickyJ

This can be a snack, appetizer or lunch. I used simple white mushrooms, regular Gouda cheese and jarred marinara sauce, but you can get creative with this. The combination of the Gouda with the mushrooms created such a delicious difference over the usual mozzarella cheese.

I expected to like this but I had no idea I'd be such a piggy about it! I made 1/2 a very long baguette and ate the whole thing myself. So simple and so very, very tasty!
Made in honour of VickiJ. RIP my dear.
