Probably not, but it's a really good fast lunch or dinner, and beats the frozen version by miles.
Take an inexpensive baguette from the grocery store, split into two and brush lightly with olive oil, and some of my friend Ann's delicious No-Cook Pizza Sauce *~
And then top it with your favorite pizza toppings ~ anything you like.
Because it doesn't spend as much time in the oven as a traditional pizza some of the toppings are partially cooked before going on the pizza.
When it is finished baking I like to cut it on the diagonal into magnagable serving pieces.
Aside from the intial brush of olive oil and Ann's Pizza Sauce I topped with sun-dried tomatoes in herbed olive oil, some crumbled ricotta cheese, browned Italian Fennel Sausage, sauteed mushrooms, sauteed onions and sweet red bell peppers, black olives and another fine drizzle of olive oil before going into a hot oven to crisp up and heat through.
I eased up on the cheese this time ~ just the crumbles of ricotta before going into the oven. And after the loaded baguettes baked I added coarse gratings of Parmesan, and finally a few leaves of Italian Parsley.
It's truly an easy way to satisfy a pizza craving without phoning take-out.
