Italian Sausage Pizza Sandwich

Tim requires so much of me. It's ridiculous. The other day, I got home from work, and he actually had the nerve to ask me what was for dinner.


Normally that question wouldn't bother me, except I had been putting off that thought all day. I hadn't planned anything. Part of me was hoping he had forgotten about dinner; that maybe he had just found some peanut butter or that old jar of chili in the back of the fridge. But nooooooooo. He just had to eat non-moldy, fresh food.

Like I

In case you haven't caught on yet, this is an original creation. And before you wince and move to something a little more traiditional, Tim told me this was one of the best things I had ever made him. He actually ate the leftovers the next day in front of a group of our friends, and every man was salivating, glancing over his shoulder at this masterpiece. It was a schmorgesborg of meat and cheeses. What's not to love?

Here's how you do it...

  • 1 leftover loaf of bread, cut in half
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Pepperoni
  • Whatever shredded cheese you've got, whether it be cheddar, mozzarella, or Mexican blend.
  • Italian sausage, cooked and drained (or ground beef, but there's nothing like the smell when you use this sausage)
  • Slices of provolone cheese
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Place both halves of the bread on a baking pan
  • Spread a generous amount of pizza sauce on both halves
  • Sprinkle your cheese on there
  • Top with pepperoni
  • Pour on all the Italian sausage or ground beef
  • Top with slices of provolone cheese
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly
Clearly this isn't what you're going to feed to your mother-in-law. And you definitely won't serve on Valentines Day. But for an evening when you're exhausted, forgot to go grocery shopping and just want to fill your family's bellies effortlessly, this is your recipe.

Seriously, you have no idea how great this smells.

Love and whatever,
