Panera Bread's French Bread Margherita Pizza

1 Loaf of French Bread, cut in half lengthwise
1 1/2 cups canned tomato sauce (or 1/2 cup of your own favorite tomato sauce)
1/2 cup fresh basil chiffonade, lightly packed (chiffonade = cut into thin strips)
2 large roma tomatoes, sliced
16 oz. mozzarella cheese, sliced
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preheat, the oven to 475 degrees F.

Lightly toast the bread for about 5 minutes. Spoon the tomato sauce over the bread. Top with the basil, then tomato slices, then the cheese.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes to brown the tops.
