Garlic and Pepperoni French Bread Pizzas

I love when I find a good deal at the grocery store.  I tend to go a little crazy sometimes and buy a lot of something if it's a major bargain.   I went early to the grocery store one day and they had just marked down the day old bread.  I found beautiful loaves of french bread that were on sale from $2.89 a loaf to just 69cents a loaf.  My eyes saw green-- the green (dollars) I was saving and I bought 5 loaves of it. I threw three of the loaves in the freezer to do something with later and took two loaves to make these easy french bread pizzas.  It was so easy my kids did most of the work. :)   I tried to make french bread pizza once before with sauce and they were not well received because the sauce made the bread soggy.  This time I decided to use no sauce on these pizzas.  So, these beauties are like if a pepperoni pizza and a loaf of garlic bread had a delicious little baby.  My kids love eating them as much as they loved making them.  Now what to do with the other loaves... just wait and see. :)


French bread
granulated garlic powder
mozzarella cheese

Note:  I won't give quantities to this recipe since you can tailor it to your taste.  

Take the bread and cut in half and then split it  down the middle.  Apply some butter on the inside of the bread. Sprinkle some granulated garlic powder and spread it over the butter evenly.  Next layer the pepperoni as desired and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.   Bake in a 350 degree oven until cheese melts and bread gets toasted. (10-12 minutes).  Serve hot or at room temperature.  Enjoy.
