Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is one hefty, hearty pizza! We LOVED this dish - men, women and children alike. We did add a smidge more sauce and cheese than is called for in the recipe. You know, just to make it EXTRA decadent!
1Slice all meats (except for hamburger) into slivers and put into a frying pan and cook on medium to high heat cook until all meat is on the crispy side.
2Brown ground beef with salt and pepper, and dice up green peppers.
3Cut 4 slices of fresh mozzarella then cube up each slice and set aside.
4Grate or finely chop the 2 garlic cloves.
5Get a large sheet pan out, drizzle the pan with olive oil, and salt and pepper.
6Cut the whole loaf of crusty italian bread into half, put the cut side (where the inside of the loaf is exposed) down and rub the bread on the pan where the bread will absorb the olive oil and salt and pepper.
7Sauce both pieces of the bread, use just a small pinch of red pepper flakes for each piece, and sprinkle on the grated or finely chopped garlic, and then sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese to cover the sauce.
8Pile on all the meat and green peppers then add the cubed fresh mozzarella and sprinkle the dried oregeno, and dried basil on top.
9Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 15 minutes
