Garlic, Pepper, and Onion French Bread Pizza

Garnished with a bit of green onion.

I’m currently addicted to two things: LOST* and Wegman’s Veggie French Bread Pizza. I don’t have a Hawaiian production unit but I do have a kitchen, so I recreated the latter.

The recognizable parts of the Wegman’s pizza are bread, mozzarella, red onions, peppers, cheddar, and margarine. With the exception of the last two ingredients, that’s what I used.

The result has a very fresh taste, so it doesn’t taste exactly like the Wegman’s frozen version. But it’s good. And it’s very good to eat while watching a 2 hour season finale.

(Dharma Initiative) Garlic, Pepper, and Onion French Bread Pizza

6-inch loaf/piece of French bread, cut in half horizontally
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
Garlic salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
1 Tbsp. finely chopped bell pepper
¾ c. Mozzarella, grated
Olive oil
2 tsp. Romano cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 400-degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and place bread on it, cut side up.

Place butter and garlic in a small sauce pan; melt butter over low heat, allowing the garlic’s flavor to infuse the butter. Using a pastry brush, brush bread with melted butter and garlic. Season with pepper and garlic salt to taste.

Top each piece with a ¼ c. of mozzarella; then sprinkle with pepper and onion. Top with remaining mozzarella. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with Romano cheese.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Grade: A-

*Did anyone see the statue last night and think: “YOU DAMN DIRTY APE!”

    Statue? What statue? As usual, more questions were asked as answered. Damn you LOST! That bread pizza looks to die for! I followed your link through Cream Puffs in Venice. Nice Blog Laura.

    Wow–quadruple the amount of garlic and I’m in! I know, I’m sick. I must have been an Italian peasant in another life, growing grapes on the side of a volcano with my companion donkey (I think his name was Niccolo) who carried the baskets.

    Sally — Well, the remnants of a statue. The four toed foot? Creeeeeeeeepy. Also, I hate the Others’ NotHenry. And I hope that Eko didn’t bite it in the explosion.Crystal — I hope you guys enjoy it!Acme — actually, I think you’re right: more garlic would be an improvement. I’m also fairly sure that in a former life, I was attended by a muscular, well-tanned, and glistening Marc Antony.
