  1. Claudia,
    Not sure what we are doing for Super Bowl, but I do know that we are trying the French Bread Buffalo Chicken Pizza. Great video. How do you have time to do all of this:)

  2. Oooo, I love French bread pizzas and these look great. I especially want the buffalo chicken one.

  3. French bread pizza is one of my guilty, guilty favorites :) And anything olives is a must, buffalo chicken canNOT compete! These look sooo good.

  4. Oh my I think I just passed out. I love french bread pizza. Yours looks so good I can barely stand it. Well done.

  5. Dear Claudia, My grandma used to make the pizza this way. She just loved it like this and so do I. Blessings, Catherine xo

  6. It is so early here, but now I want some pizza. The buffalo chicken style is something I need to try! I really do like the videos that you do now. You get so much more out of them than just reading the recipe. I am sure I will enjoy these pizzas-I agree lots of cheese-yum!

  7. Yay! I love these recipes. My daddy used to make these for us all of the time. Thanks for bringing me back!

  8. This is what I love about pizza, you can make so many varieties out of thing you already have on hand!

  9. This would definitely disappear at a super bowl party--I don't know why I don't make appetizers like this for some of our big parties. They would be a hit!

  10. Both look irresistible, Claudia! I want to be at your house for the Super Bowl!
