Step 3: Place each loaf of flattened bread on the baking sheet. With a knife, cover the cut-side of the bread with butter using about 1 1/2 Tbsp per piece. Then sprinkle 1/4 tsp garlic salt over the butter on each loaf.

Step 4: Next, top the butter and garlic salt with 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella divided between the two pieces. Bake in the oven for 7-8 minutes or until cheese is slightly melted. Remove from oven.

Step 5: Top the melted cheese with pizza sauce. You will probably only use half the jar.

Step 6: At last, top the “pizzas” with the remaining cheese and, if desired, additional toppings such as meat and veggies.

Step 7: Bake the finished pizzas for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly browned. Serve warm and cut into slices with a pizza cutter.
