Meaty French Bread Pizza

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by chia2160

having a loaf of bread left over from a meal bothers me, as does a drop of meals left over. so i made this with the leftovers, great 30 minute meal. ( you can always saute some beef and sausage, or just microwave them and add them to the pizza to finish cooking in the oven.

Made these for dinner last night along wioth a salad. I decided to do individual pizzas so I used bomber buns instead of Italian bread, that had been cut in half. I pout them in a 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes to dry them out just a little bit more so we would get a nice crunch when eating them. This was a hit with the entire family and will surely be repeated.
