Cheesy Saucy Bread

So sorry for the delay in putting out a post.  There's been a lot of personal stuff going on, so I really haven't been online at all except for financial necessities and homeschooling materials.  I'm hoping to get back to a regular schedule of posting about two times a week again.

Anyhow, on to the recipe: this is a completely indulgent bread, and I use that term loosely.  My family thinks it's simply cheese pizza, but no, I'm calling it Cheesy Saucy Bread, and that way it can be served alongside other dishes to make a complete meal.  It's super easy, too, so I hope you have fun making it!

Cheesy Saucy Bread


1 - 15oz. can tomato sauce
1 Tbs. tomato paste
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

1 pkg. Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet cheese, Monterey Jack style, finely shredded

2 lg. loaves of ciabatta bread, cut into quarters or halves, depending on size.

Heat top broiler in oven.  Put all the ingredients for the sauce (tomato sauce through pepper) into a medium pot.  Cook over medium low heat for ten minutes, stirring occasionally, until the tomato paste is well absorbed.  Place the sections of bread on large baking sheets.  Spread the sauce evenly over the bread.  Sprinkle the cheese over the sauce.  Place bread under broiler for four minutes, or until cheese melts.  Serve with pasta and roasted veggies for a complete meal.  Mm-mmm, good.  Feeds five hungry vegans.


  1. Oh yum!! I like the sound of Cheesy Saucy much more apt than calling it pizza. The Monterey Jack flavor of FYH is my fav too.
    These look great; I'm craving some now.

  2. Thanks, Molly!

    Rose, thank you, now if you would please tell my family the same thing! You and I are on the same wavelength. :-)

  3. WOW! This looks really decadent! I'm going to have to pick up a little FYH next week. . .

  4. Oh man, your cheesy sauce bread looks so good. That's right down my alley!
    I hope all is well with you and your family!

  5. Michelle, thank you, I bet you'd like it. Thanks for the well wishes, and I hope the same for you and yours.

  6. It has been harder for me to get to the computer lately, as well. But tonight, I'm trying to wait up until the kiddos are good and asleep before I fill the stockings...yawn...Merry Christmas!!!
