I am not usually a lazy person. I am either blogging, working on some sort of project for a birthday party, or chasing after my two kids and trying to maintain our household. I’m not a TV watcher, and if its on I am usually folding a load of laundry or the like. I try to always plan ahead so that my time is used wisely so I can spend more time with my kids. Dinner is a area though were I allow the lazy to creep in from time to time.
I love pizza, and while my favorite pizza crust recipe is a cinch to pull together, some nights I am just TIRED. And since my kids demand to be fed each evening (didn’t I just feed them yesterday?!) I sometimes resort to easier measures.
That’s where french bread pizza comes into play. A loaf of french bread takes all the work out of pizza night. This version is a riff on the beloved Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. Its perfect for a week night meal or for eating in front of the game. Now please, go put your feet up, enjoy a slice of this pizza, and be lazy. You deserve it!

1 loaf french bread, split horizontally

1 Jar pizza sauce
1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place french bread on a baking sheet. Spread with pizza sauce. Layer half the mozzarella and monterey jack cheese onto both pieces of bread. Layer roast beef, onions and bell peppers on cheese. Top with remaining shredded cheeses. Cut cheese slices in half and place on top of pizza. Bake for 35 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling. Slice and serve immediately
