Garlic Bread Pizzas

This is a good one to have up your sleeve for those dinner emergencies. (We all have them!)
Money-saving tip: Scour your fridge and freezer for pizza toppings. If you have to buy toppings at the grocery store, take a trip around the grocery store salad bar. You can often find delicious ingredients like chopped bacon, blue cheese, Feta cheese, etc., for less than what it would cost to buy these ingredients individually.

- 1 package frozen garlic bread slices
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
- 1 cup desired toppings (I used pepperoni, onions, mushrooms, chopped tomatoes, and green peppers)
- Preheat oven to 350F. Place garlic bread slices on a large baking sheet. Top each slice with a scant tablespoon of pizza sauce, cheese, and desired toppings.
- Bake pizzas for 12 to 15 minutes, or until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted.
