French Bread Pizza

Talk about a kid-friendly, easy, weeknight dinner! This is just the ticket! I don't always have French bread on hand but it doesn't matter! This is one of those meals where you can have all the components ready. Then call the hubster on his way home from work and have him pick up a loaf. As soon as he gets home, put it all together, pop it in the oven, and by the time he has kissed the kids and changed into his comfy clothes, dinner is on the table! I love it!

French Bread Pizza

1 loaf French bread
1 cup pizza sauce
  1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1/2 cup green peppers, chopped
3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (freshly shredded works best)
Parmesan garlic herb seasoning (recipe following)

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Brown ground beef, onions, and peppers together. Really you can use whatever pizza topping you like here but ground beef really works great for this. Sometimes I don't even add the peppers and onions. Drain beef. Cut French bread in half hot-dog bun style. Spread with pizza sauce. Sprinkle on ground beef mixture. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Top with seasoning. Bake for 7-10 minutes, until cheese is nice and melty. You could also put it under the broiler for the last 2-3 minutes to get that goldeny cheese. Enjoy! I serve this will a Ceasar salad and mixed fruit.

Parmesan Garlic Herb Seasoning

1/2 c. powdered Parmesan cheese
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 tsp marjoram
  1 tsp parsley
Mix together in a jar. Store in fridge. Use on any pizza or garlic bread!
