Yummy Wednesday - Margherita Pizza Bread

I lived on this for three days straight - it's THAT good! It's easy to make... and the leftovers are fabulous! If you have a friend handing out fresh tomatoes from their garden - that makes it even better! (And this goes great with Trader Joe's Honey Moon Wine... Just saying...)Margherita Pizza Bread

Fresh french bread loaf
Pizza sauce (I love Trader Joe's)
Fresh tomatoes, sliced (I used heirloom cherry tomatoes given to me by a church friend - Fabulous!)
Fresh basil
Mozzerella cheese

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Cut your french bread loaf into 6-8inch sections, and slice in half (like a sandwich).
Place each section cut side up on a cookie sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray.
Spread a thick layer of pizza sauce over each of the sections.
Top with sliced tomatoes.
Add fresh basil leaves (As many or little as you like. I used 6 medium leaves.)
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Generously cover with mozzerella cheese.
Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and edges are slightly brown.
