Makes 15 bites
You will need
1 (8 ounce) can of tomato sauce
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
kosher salt and pepper to taste
1/2 baguette, sliced into 15 slices, about 1 inch thick
1 clove garlic, peeled
2/3 cup to 1 cup shredded mozzarella
About 10 slices of pepperoni, diced
Turn your oven to the broil setting.
In a sauce pan add tomato sauce, granulated garlic, dried basil, dried oregano and salt and pepper. Heat over medium heat until warmed, but not boiling.
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil (it makes for easy clean up). Lay the baguette slices in a single layer on the cookie sheet. Cook under the broiler for about 1 minute. Just until they are slightly toasted. Once they are toasted, rub each slice with the clove of garlic. Return to the oven and broil for 1-2 more minutes or until they turn slightly brown.
Using about a teaspoon of sauce, spread sauce over the toast. Layer with cheese and then pepperoni. Repeat until all baguette slices are complete. Put under the broiler until cheese melts.
The best thing about these is that the possilities are endless. Another variation would be your favorite BBQ sauce with some left over shredded chicken and some pepper jack cheese. Or go traditional Italian and use the same tomato sauce, some fresh mozzarella and fresh basil.
