Instructions

  1. Heat a non stick skillet over high heat. Cook HALF the pepperoni/salami and onion into the skillet and cook for 2 minutes. Add red bell peppers and cook for a further 1 minute. Remove onto a plate.
  2. Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
  3. Mix together Cream Cheese Filling ingredients.
  4. Use a knife to cut a deep V into the baguette and pick out the bread to create a deep crevice.
  5. Spread the pizza sauce into the crevice.
  6. Top with COOKED pepperoni, onion and bell peppers.
  7. Then top with Cream Cheese Filling, mozzarella cheese then UNCOOKED pepperoni.
  8. Wrap with foil and bake for 15 minutes, then unwrap and bake for a further 5 minutes.
  9. Cut into thick slices and serve immediately!

Recipe Notes

1. I like making this with the long thin French baguettes which are 65cm/2 feet long with a diameter of around 5 - 6cm/2 1/2 inches. This can also be made with the fatter baguettes but the dip quantity will need to be increased by about 50%.
2. To make ahead, you can either assemble then cook when ready, OR you can bake in foil for 15 minutes per recipe, then slice it and then wrap in foil again. When ready to cook, reheat the pre-sliced baguette at 350F/180C for 5 minutes wrapped then 5 minutes unwrapped.
