With my mummy pizza recipe, you can make them to your own taste, if the kids want traditional pizza you can do that, and yet you can still enjoy a different flavored pizza without much effort.
Can I make this into pepperoni or cheese pizza instead
Yes, you can adjust this recipe for the traditional pizza flavors that your family enjoys. For pepperoni pizza just replace the ranch for regular pizza sauce, and add on cheese and pepperoni.
For cheese pizza, swap the ranch for traditional pizza sauce and top with your favorite cheeses. Want to add some additional flavor? Sprinkle Italian seasoning on top of mummy pizzas.
Can I freeze this French Bread Pizza?
Yes, you can. I like to freeze this French bread pizza for an easy lunch for the kids. I wrap these pizzas individually, so that I can easily pull out one at a time. There is no need to thaw these pizzas, just add a few minutes to your cooking time if your pizza is frozen.
Should I freeze my pizzas cooked or uncooked
For this French bread pizza recipe you can freeze your pizzas cooked or uncooked. You can also freeze these pizzas with toppings on them and without toppings such as sauce.
What is the best way to reheat this French Bread Pizza
When I am ready to serve them, I put them in a 350 oven for approximately 10 minutes. I take the pizza out of the oven and add a little grated cheese on top and let it sit while the pizza cools slightly so that the cheese doesn't melt off.
How long will French Bread Pizza keep in the fridge
This French bread pizza is good for 3-4 days in the fridge. These should be stored covered and I like to wrap them in foil, so that they do not dry out.
Should I use store bought or homemade French bread for this chicken bacon ranch pizza
Either one will work just fine! Store bought French bread is usually a bit crispier than homemade. But you can use either one. My husband prefers the softer crust, while I like a crispy crust.
Can I use different toppings on these mummy pizzas?
Yes, you can use almost any toppings that you like. I love adding pepperoni and sausage to these pizzas, while my daughter loves just chicken and cheese. My husband likes his with bacon and jalapenos
What kind of cheese should I use on this pizza
You can definitely use pretty much whatever type of cheese that you prefer. I like to use processed cheese or mozzarella cheese on these pizzas because it melts easier. But you can always use freshly shredded cheese and add a few minutes to your bake time since the cheese will be fresh and not melted at all.
What should you dip this pizza in
We love eating this chicken bacon ranch pizza with my homemade ranch dressing for dipping. In my opinion you can never have too much ranch. You could even use garlic butter for dipping if you want.
What kind of cooked chicken should I use
You can use any kind of cooked chicken that you have on hand to make these delicious mummy pizzas. I like to use leftover chicken, or even a store bought rotisserie chicken. You can just use leftover grilled chicken or whatever works for you.
How do I make these chicken bacon ranch pizzas look like a mummy
To make these chicken bacon ranch pizzas look like mummies you will use crescent rolls. Cut the crescent rolls into strips, and then use them to make your French bread pizza into a mummy.
Can I leave the crescent rolls off the chicken bacon ranch pizzas
Absolutely, if you do not want mummy pizzas , you can leave the crescent roll strips off. These pizzas are super delicious without them too.
Are mummy pizzas kid friendly
Yes, these mummy pizzas are perfect for a fun dinner with the kids. My son loved getting these tasty pizzas as a surprise in his lunch box. I always served this mummy pizza with a side salad and a fruit or sweet item like cookies when I included it in his lunch box.
