Pizza Loaves – Once a Month Cooking

I am planning to join Fish Mama at Life as Mom and Crystal at Money Saving Mom and gearing up for another freezer cooking day. I know that some of my readers are, too, so I thought this week I would share one of the yummy once a month cooking meals I made last month, Pizza Loaves. These were easy to assemble and made 4 meals for us; we have eaten all but one meal of these. I never use Cheez-Whiz, but I used it and made a few minor changes, and our family loved the finished results.

Pizza Loaves
1.5 lbs. hamburger
1 clove garlic, minced
2 loaves French bread, split down the center, each half cut into 4 portions (16 portions total)
1 – 8 oz. jar processed cheese spread
4 oz. mushrooms
½ green pepper
1 – 8 oz. can tomato sauce
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

In skillet, cook beef until no longer pink. Drain. Stir in garlic.

Place each bread on a heavy duty foil piece. This will be used to wrap after assembling.

Spread bread with cheese sauce. Top with beef mix, mushrooms, green peppers. Drizzle with pizza sauce. Top with mozzarella cheese.

Wrap and freeze up to 3 months.

To Bake: Unwrap loaves and place on baking sheet at 350 for 25 minutes.

  1. What a great idea!! Looks delicious. I am always looking for meals I can freeeze. Thanks so much!!

  2. yum!

  3. What a great meal to have in the freezer, especially for us, we always have last minute guests and I hate sending out for food because homemade is always better (and cheaper)

    Is there something that could be substituted for the cheese spread – my son is alergic to food that has artificial colors, flavors or preservatives in it?

  7. What a great take on PIZZA!

  9. Isn't homemade pizza the best thanks for shring that looks yummy!


  10. I would think that you could use regular cheese in place of the cheese spread. As far as I can tell, the cheese spread seems to be used to keep the wet sauce from making the bread soggy.
