|1||French baguette, cut on the diagonal into 1/4-inch slices|
|1/4 cup||Pastene Extra Virgin Olive Oil|
|1 tbsp||Pastene Minced Garlic (toasted slightly)|
|1 jar (24oz)||Pastene Tomato Basil or your favorite Pastene tomato sauce|
|4 oz||thinly sliced pepperoni|
|2 cups||shredded mozzarella (or whatever cheese you have on hand)|
|2 tsp||Italian seasoning|
|Fresh shredded basil, for garnish|
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Set two racks in the middle and lower thirds of the oven. Arrange the baguette slices in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic powder, and set aside.
- Preheat a 10- or 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes until very hot. Layer the sauce, cheese, and pepperoni in the skillet and sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Bake until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is melted, 10 to 12 minutes.
- During the last 5 minutes of baking, slide the bread into the oven and toast until golden. Garnish the dip with the basil and serve with the toast.
