Chef's Tips

As an alternative, you can slice the bread in ¾ inch to 1 inch thick slices and place onto a foil or parchment lined baking pan. Baste the top of each slice with the butter and oil mixture and then add cheese on top. Broil in the oven for 10 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.

Step 1:

Cut the loaf of Italian bread in half, lengthwise, separating the top from the bottom, and set aside.


Step 2:

In a medium sized bowl, mix together the butter, olive oil, Parmesan cheese and Hungry Gene Salt Free Premium Pizza Seasoning.


Step 3:

Spread the butter mixture on the bready surface (not the crust side) of the sliced bread.


​Step 4:

Add 1/2 cup pizza cheese or more for cheesier bread on top of the bread.

Step 5:

Broil in the oven, directly on the oven rack, for 10 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown on top.

Serve with the meal of your choice.  Enjoy!
