Grilled Pizza Bread
These fun French bread pizzas are great at picnics for both kids and adults. Tasty on the grill, they can just as easily be baked in the oven.
4 to 6 servings
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 (1 pound) loaf French bread
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 (2.25 ounce) can sliced ripe olives, drained
sliced pepperoni, optional
In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, salt and oregano; simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
Cut bread in half lengthwise and then widthwise. Spread meat mixture on cut side of bread; sprinkle with cheese, olives and pepperoni if desired.
Loosely wrap bread individually in pieces of heavy-duty foil (about 24 x 18 inch); seal. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through.
