1 loaf French bread, split lengthwise
pepperoni, sausage or any other meat you would like to add to the top
Spaghetti sauce (about 1/2 cup or more to taste)
Spinach, Bell Pepper, Onions, Olives or any other toppings you would like to add
Spread about 1/4 cup on each side of the bread, making sure not to use too much. Too much sauce will leave you with soggy bread. Next add your meat on top of that, then the cheese. Finish with your vegetable toppings and bake at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted and the bread lightly browned.
