Easy French Bread Pizza

74

I can always whip up a great pizza, with or without meat. This nice thing about this meal is it's ease of preparation and the versatility of ingredients that can be used. In this case I used a sliced ham from the deli counter and fresh spinach (yep! I snuck it in again!). But the options are endless. What ever you have in your frig and where your imagination takes you. Vegetarian, you bet. Leftover chicken, pork or beef, go for it. Pickled Giardiniera, yum!

6
1 loaf french bread-sourdough preferred in my house, split
1/4 cup softened butter
1 garlic clove, grated on a microplane or minced
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2 cups marinara-you might need less, don't drown it
2 cups cut up meat
1 cup baby spinach
2-3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, or any cheese

Optionally: add sliced mushrooms, green onions, olives, peppers, pineapple, bacon, pepperoncini, diced tomatoes, and on and on.
Preheat oven to 400F, place a frozen loaf directly on a middle rack for 8-10 minutes, remove and split lengthwise. If fresh, don't preheat, just split. Mix the butter with the grated or minced garlic...
