Why, oh why, did I not combine my two great loves sooner? All this time lost that they could have been together, and it is all my fault.
All I can do now is make up for lost time. Garlic bread and pizza were always meant to be together, and now, at last, they can be. My Garlic Bread Pizzas create a match made in heaven, a beautiful unity that you cannot help but… DEVOUR.

Slather each slice in sauce, adding more or less depending on your preference (I used about 1 tbsp. per slice).
