French Bread Pizzas

6 whole deli rolls or French bread, sliced
Jarred marinara or pizza sauce
Jarred or refrigerated pesto
2 lb. shredded mozzarella cheese
Grated parmesan cheese, to taste
2 tbsp. butter
1 onion, sliced
1/2 lb. sausage (breakfast or italian)
Pepperoni slices
Canadian bacon slices
Pineapple chunks, fresh or canned
Roma tomatoes, sliced
Sliced black olives
Goat cheese
Sliced bell peppers
Jalapeño slices
Sliced red onion


Preheat the oven to 375°.
For the pizza: Slice rolls in half and lay them, cut side up, on a large baking sheet.
Top each half with a generous portion of either marinara or pesto. Next, top with a generous
amount of grated mozzarella and parmesan cheese, if you'd like.
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring
occasionally, until golden and softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Add the sausage to the skillet. Cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 6 to
8 minutes.
Top the bread with the onions and sausage. Sprinkle on your choice of optional toppings.
Once all assembled, put the pan in the oven on the lowest rack for 8 to 10 minutes. Crank up the
heat to 425° and put it on the highest rack until the cheese starts to bubble a bit and turn golden,
2 to 3 minutes.
Remove and serve immediately! You can cut the pizzas in half right across the middle so there
are mini French bread pizzas for everyone.
