Preparation

  1. Heat a grill or campfire to medium heat.
  2. Make the garlic butter: Add the butter, oregano, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes to a small bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Slice the French loaf almost all the way in half lengthwise, leaving a long side still attached like a hot dog bun.
  4. Open the bread and spread the pizza sauce liberally over both sides. Lay the sliced mozzarella on both sides of the bread. Lay half of the pepperoni slices over the mozzarella on the bottom half. Sprinkle with the shredded mozzarella, then top with the remaining pepperoni. Sprinkle the Parmesan and basil over the pepperoni, then gently bring both sides of the bread up together to close.
  5. Brush to top and bottom of the loaf with the garlic butter, then double wrap the sandwich in aluminum foil.
  6. Set the sandwich on the grill or campfire over medium heat. Place a cast-iron or other heavy skillet on top to press down. Cook the sandwich for 5 minutes, then flip and cook for 5 minutes more, until the outside of the bread is crisp and the cheese is melted.
  7. Let sandwich cool for a few minutes before carefully unwrapping. Slice and serve.
  8. Enjoy!
