Begin the recipe by preheating the oven to 400 degrees F. and slice a loaf of French bread evenly down the middle to create two halves.
Flatten out the middle of each piece by pressing it down firmly with your hands. Place onto a baking sheet/sheet pan and set aside.
In a small bowl, stir together the 4 tablespoons butter, 2 cloves of minced garlic, ½ tablespoon olive oil, ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning, and 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese.
Next, spread this mixture evenly onto the center of each loaf of French bread. With the bread still on the baking sheet, place it into the oven to bake for 6 to 10 minutes, until lightly toasted.
Carefully remove from the oven and spread the 1 cup marinara sauce on the toasted French bread, top with your favorite toppings (optional), and then place your 9 ounces sliced mozzarella cheese on top and along with the two sliced black olives for the eyes.
Place under the broiler on low until the cheese is melted and heated throughout. Keep an eye on it while it is in the oven. Carefully remove from the pizza oven. Slice and serve while still warm. Enjoy!
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat before serving.
