Mushroom-Gouda French Bread Pizzas

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

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!

What a nice surprise appetizer. I made this with a small baugette of French bread. I think the flavors of the cheese and basil were outstanding together. A nice balance with the marinara sauce. They were the perfect little bites. I did use smoked Gouda instead of plain, because that's what I had in my refrigerator.

I will miss you Miss Vicky. RIP
