What kind of Texas toast can I use? 

You can use any prepackaged garlic Texas toast for this recipe. Just make sure it’s pre-sliced and seasoned so you have an easy pizza base. Popular brands like Wonder Bread work well.

Can I freeze the assembled pizzas? 

Yes! Freezing the pizzas before baking allows you to enjoy fresh garlic bread pizzas later with ease. Simply assemble them completely with toppings then wrap individually and freeze. When ready to eat, bake frozen pizzas for 12-14 minutes.

How long is the prep and cook time? 

Prep time is roughly 10 minutes – just long enough to assemble the pizzas. Total oven time is only 11 minutes (4 minutes on first side, 7 minutes after flipping and adding toppings). So in about 20 minutes start to finish you’ll be enjoying hot pizza!

What sauce works best for topping?

 Pizza sauce or marinara give the most authentic pizza flavor. But you can also use spaghetti sauce, pesto, BBQ sauce, or other favorite sauces for creative twists. Get creative with global inspired toppings too!


  • 1 box garlic Texas toast (about 10 slices), sliced and seasoned
  • 1⁄4 cup pizza or spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 10 pepperoni slices or other favorite pizza toppings


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Arrange the slices of garlic Texas toast in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 4 minutes, until lightly toasted. Remove from the oven.
  4. Flip each slice of garlic toast over. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of pizza/spaghetti sauce evenly over each piece, spreading to cover.
  5. Top each piece evenly with shredded mozzarella cheese, about 2 tablespoons per slice.
  6. Add your desired toppings. Pepperoni works great, or you can use other pizza toppings like sausage, mushrooms, onions, etc.

  8. Bake for 7 more minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Recipe by
