Last week I found myself with company coming and not a lot in the fridge. I took a look around and realized I had the makings for Pizza Bread. This is a great side, especially when you've got a house full of kids.
Day old bread
Jarred Marinara sauce
First I set the oven to 375º, then cut the bread into 3/4" slices; thick enough to stand up to the toppings, but not too thick for little mouths. I toasted them in the toaster (so that they wouldn't get soggy when I put on the sauce) then rubbed the toasted tops with a peeled, raw garlic clove. This is a classic trick where the fresh garlic is almost grated onto the toast. (In another application, you can drizzle it with olive oil and sprinkle it with salt and have a really tasty side for any pasta dish.)
Cut the bread into quarters for little hands and let stand for at least 5 minutes so as to not burn their little mouths.
