We love the breadsticks we get at our local pizza parlor when they're hot and gooey right from the oven. Now I can get that same wonderful goody, but I never have to leave the house. —Heather Bates, Athens, Maine
A purchased loaf of French bread get a real boost with a few simple ingredients. Garlic and chives make the savory slices irresistible. Along with lasagna or other Italian meal, we munch them until the last crumbs have vanished!—Kim Orr, West Grove, Pennsylvania
This wonderful accompaniment could not be tastier or simpler to make. Minced fresh garlic is key to these flavor-packed crusty slices, which our big family would snap up before they even had a chance to cool.

Even if you've never made pizza from scratch, I hope you'll try this recipe. it's the highlight of my favorite casual meal. You have to plan ahead to allow rising time for the dough, but it is easy to work with and the crust is so good.
Pepperoni, tomatoes and olives dress up this cheesy baked dip. I serve it with breadsticks and wedges of baked Boboli. You can even prepare individual servings in ramekins if you like. —Kitti Boesel, Woodbridge, Virginia
This is one of the appetizers my friends request most. There is rarely any left over when I serve it. The red pepper flakes and basil add a nice little kick to the taste.

Stuffed with a pizza-style filling, these special sandwiches surprise you with a burst of flavor in every bite. They were popular with the preschool set at our son's dinosaur-theme birthday party...but you can be sure adults will love them, too! — Robin Werner, Brush Prairie, Washington
