We call them "Pizza Burgers", but they are basically individual pizzas made on french bread, sub buns, hoagie rolls or even sandwich buns or hot dog buns. No matter what you call them, they are a family favorite in our house any day.
This is an especially quick supper to make when you have leftover pizza ingredients in your fridge or freezer. It also makes a nice meal if you have picky eaters who like different toppings. You can set toppings out and let each person create their own pizza!
To make your pizzas you'll need:
Buns or rolls split horizontally
Shredded (sliced works very well, too) Mozzarella or Provolone Cheese
Any pizza toppings you prefer (pepperoni, sausage, onion, mushrooms, peppers, etc.)
First, turn on your broiler and cover your broiler pan with foil (makes for easier clean-up). Split your rolls and place cut side up on broiler pan. Lightly toast rolls under broiler for about 2 minutes watching closely so as not to burn them. Top toasted roll halves with sauce and toppings desired. Place under broiler again until cheese is melted and toppings are heated- about 3 minutes. Serve hot. Refrigerate any leftovers.

If you are tired of Classic French Toast or if you'd just like to try something different, add a twist to it with one of the following tips!
~Add a splash of vanilla or almond extract or flavoring to the egg wash before you mix it up. It adds a ton of flavor to the finished product!
~Add 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to your egg wash!
~Make cinnamon stuffed french toast by softening 4 ounces of cream cheese and adding a teaspoon of cinnamon and a teaspoon of sugar. Spread one or two tablespoons cream cheese mixture between two slices of bread to make a "sandwich"; dip sandwich in egg wash and cook as usual.
~Make fruity stuffed french toast by adding 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar to 4 ounces softened cream cheese. Spread a tablespoon or two of this mixture between two slices of bread to make a "sandwich", dip sandwich in egg wash and cook as usual. Top with sliced fruit (strawberries or blueberries would be yummy!) mixed with sugar.
