Submarine Pizzas

These were a fun throwback to school cafeteria lunches, but of course these are better. I had a couple of submarine sandwich bread rolls around, so I decided to turn them into pizza. They were quick and easy, and you can pile on the flavors.

I made my pizza with Italian sausage, green bell peppers, and red onions since I already had them in the fridge. Those plus tomato sauce and cheese cost me about $8 for four submarine pizzas, which fed two people.

Ingredients for 2:

  • 2 submarine sandwich rolls, halved
  • 2 Italian sausage links split open or ¼ pound of ground sausage
  • 1 14-ounce can of tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ white onion, chopped
  • ½ red onion, cut into strips
  • ½ green bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 to 2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese (optional)

In a small saucepan, heat 1 teaspoon on medium heat and add the garlic and white onion. Stir and cook until onions are translucent. Add tomato sauce and 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil then remove from heat and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.

In a pan, heat the other 1 teaspoon of oil on medium. Add the ground sausage meat and 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Crumble the meat and cook thoroughly, about 5 to 7 minutes. Set the pan aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

On a baking sheet, assemble the pizzas.

Ladle enough tomato sauce to cover the tops of each sandwich-half, but keep in mind that you need enough to cover all four. Then divide the mozzarella, bell pepper strips, red onion strips, and sausage amongst all four pizzas. Sprinkle with a bit of parmesan cheese if desired and bake for 13 to 15 minutes.
