There have been many commercials on the TV recently for Pizza Hut's Garlic Bread Pizza. Since the closest Pizza Hut is over 40 miles away and I just don't think they are going to deliver here, I figured making my own was going to be necessary! :)
I started with a purchased rustic-style loaf of bread. I wanted the chewy texture so that it would hold up to the toppings. Spread with butter and sprinkle on some garlic powder and stick it under the broiler until golden brown.
Let it cool just a bit and then add your pizza sauce of choice.
Next, some shredded mozzarella cheese, a little or a lot - your choice!
Now, add your toppings. I just used sausage this time, I have also used pepperoni with bell peppers and onions.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cheese is lightly browned and bubbly.
This is so good, a lot quicker than making pizza dough, and you can make several different types so that everyone gets what they want. I guess it's a take-off on the old french bread pizzas but I like this version better as it is not as soggy.
