French Bread Pizzas with Mozzarella and Pepperoni

Forget about the freezer aisle! This classic is just as easy to make from scratch. For a spicy kick, add red-pepper flakes.

When I try this, I'll probably add some other goodies like mushrooms and peppers.

This can also be cut into small slices to serve as appetizers.
