  • 2 loaves gluten-free French bread or baguettes , thawed (I used Udi’s French Baguettes)
  • ½ cup prepared basil pesto*
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes , halved
  • 1 cup pre-cooked chicken breast* (cut into 1-inch pieces)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese*
  • Parmesan cheese shavings , for serving (optional)
  1. Arrange the rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 400°F.
  2. Cut bread in half lengthwise. Place halved baguettes cut-side up on a baking sheet. Spread pesto on each piece of bread. Top with half the tomatoes and half the chicken. Sprinkle evenly with the mozzarella. Top with the remaining tomatoes and chicken.
  3. Bake until the bread is heated through and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Top with Parmesan shavings, if desired. Cut each half into 2 pieces for serving.
