Anyhow, on to the recipe: this is a completely indulgent bread, and I use that term loosely. My family thinks it's simply cheese pizza, but no, I'm calling it Cheesy Saucy Bread, and that way it can be served alongside other dishes to make a complete meal. It's super easy, too, so I hope you have fun making it!
Cheesy Saucy Bread right out of the oven
Cheesy Saucy Bread
1 - 15oz. can tomato sauce
1 Tbs. tomato paste
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 pkg. Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet cheese, Monterey Jack style, finely shredded
2 lg. loaves of ciabatta bread, cut into quarters or halves, depending on size.
Heat top broiler in oven. Put all the ingredients for the sauce (tomato sauce through pepper) into a medium pot. Cook over medium low heat for ten minutes, stirring occasionally, until the tomato paste is well absorbed. Place the sections of bread on large baking sheets. Spread the sauce evenly over the bread. Sprinkle the cheese over the sauce. Place bread under broiler for four minutes, or until cheese melts. Serve with pasta and roasted veggies for a complete meal. Mm-mmm, good. Feeds five hungry vegans.
