I found this in my collection of family favorites. This is served on toasted French bread. You can also use mushrooms, pepperoni and chopped green or red bell peppers.

I used spicy pork sausage black olives 1/4 of one onion sliced in half circles. Added seeded chunks of Super red chile and yellow bell pepper from the garden--baked for 15 minutes on Valentino's crust (kneeded for 7-8 minutes). Mouth-watering pizza. Read More

Really yummy-husband and I loved it! I only used 1 onion (it was a huge one!) and I hollowed out the bread halves just a little so they wouldn't overflow with toppings. Awesome! Read More

The topping was a little bit sloppy but it tasted really good. I omitted the olives because I don't like them and I used a Vienna loaf sliced in half for the base. It really couldn't be easier. Great recipe Eleanor! Thanks! Read More

this was okay but next time i will add a few more toppings of my own and maybe personalize the pizzas by using the smaller hoagie type bun so the smaller children can hold it easier. Read More
