To make the Pizzas, Cut Baguette in half longwise and then again down the middle making for four even pieces to make the pizzas. Season with Olive Oil, Salt & Pepper on both sides. Preheat a large sauté pan over medium high heat and drizzle aggressively with Olive Oil, about 4 Tablespoons. Place bread cut side down and toast until golden brown.
