To make four vegetarian slices and four carnivore ones you will need the following:
One large french bread loaf (we used whole wheat)
1 small jar of pizza sauce ( I found a great organic one at Whole Foods)
1 small tomato, diced
1/2 white onion, diced
1 small green bell pepper, diced
1 package of pepperoni
2 cups of mozzarella
a bit of fresh basil, chopped
a bit of olive oil for drizzling
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Slice bread lengthwise and then in fourths, making eight mini pizza bases. Place on baking sheet. Stabilize with aluminum foil if needed. Drizzle bread with olive oil. Coat each slice with pizza sauce, about 1-2 tblsp each. Add a generous amount of shredded mozzarella to each piece. On the carnivore pizzas layer on pepperoni. On the vegetarian ones, add diced tomato, onion, and green pepper. Top all four pieces with a bit more cheese. Bake for about twenty minutes, until cheese is golden and bubbly. Top the veggie ones with the fresh basil before serving.
I have to tell you, these baked beauties were crunchy cheesy perfection. And you can switch out the toppings to pretty much anything that floats your boat - ground sausage, mushrooms, canadian bacon, spinach, you name it. Very easy for a varied diet family. Now that's revolutionary!
