Pizza Salad

I got this out of a Kraft "Salads" booklet a few years ago and have been making it ever since. We usually have it with Trader Joe's Italian Herbed Cheese Bread, but no time for that today, so I just made my own. Spread a tiny bit of butter on a few slices of sourdough, then sprinkle with Italian herb seasoning, a Tablespoon or two of shredded mozzarella, and a Tablespoon of shredded parmesan. Toast in a 400 oven for 12 minutes, or til toasted and lightly browned.

Pizza Salad
(for four)

1 bag romaine lettuce
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 can olives, halved
1/2 a small package of sliced pepperoni
1 cup shredded mozzarella (or little balls of mozzarella, called 'ciliegine')
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 cup (or however much you like) Italian dressing

Brown the pepperoni, on a baking sheet, in a 400 degree oven for about 12 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Toss lettuce with desired amount of dressing, then top with tomatoes, bell pepper, olives, pepperoni, and cheeses. Serve with Italian cheese bread.
