While reading through my usual list of food blogs I came across a recipe for Rachael Ray's Nacho Bread Pizza at Sweetnicks that looked and sounded tasty. I could even do some of the prep the night before, which is always a plus.
... was much better than I thought it would be. It was also very messy. I think the baguette I used was too small because even when I hollowed it out there wasn't much room for the toppings. But what matters most - taste - made this a winner. The beans were perfectly seasoned with hints of smokey cumin and hot sauce and the crunchy lettuce/red onion/stuffed olive/scallion topping really paired well with the bread and the beans. I would definitely make this again, although I might incorporate some ground beef for my meat-loving husband.
