Sausage Italian Bread Pizza Recipe

If you want a easy quick meal for the family this  sausage Italian bread pizza is the perfect solution. Sausage Italian bread pizza is or favorite topping but add whatever you like on it. 

Sausage Italian Bread Pizza

This happens to be leftover Sunday Sauce with sausage and meatballs were in it, so I just crushed up the sausage and viola, instant pizza to french bread.

When I have no time to think of making a big meal this is always a satisfying solution. The kids like it plain, my husband like pepperoni or sausage.  The pizza topping gets either whatever is leftover or in the refrigerator.

I have made buffalo pizza with leftover chicken and hotsauce, pineapple and ham, shrimp with garlic and oil, olives, peppers and chicken roasted. The combinations are endless. Think of this as an open top sandwich. For me all vegetables. Try eggplant parmesan on top!

You can adapt this with your favorite toppings your use to and make your own combinations.  It;s a good idea to keep olives, mushrooms, peppers, cooked meats, even ham and pineapple on hand in the cupboards and refrigerator.

 Store bought whole loaves of Italian or French bread used, can be the perfect meal and if you cut it in half lengthwise then in half again you can please everyone in your family to the toppings they love!

The kids love this one! I may have to warn you though they are so good, you may have to make two!
