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
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
1 Tbsp. finely chopped bell pepper
¾ c. Mozzarella, grated
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.
*Did anyone see the statue last night and think: “YOU DAMN DIRTY APE!”
