    1 (12–14") soft loaf French or Italian bread, split in half lengthwise
    1 garlic clove, smashed
    1/2 cup store-bought tomato sauce
    1 cup coarsely grated mozzarella (about 4 ounces)
    3 ounces sliced pepperoni
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes (optional)
    2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh basil

    Position rack in top third of oven and preheat to 425°F. Place bread, cut side up, on a rimmed baking sheet and bake 5 minutes. Remove from oven and rub cut sides with garlic.
    Spread tomato sauce on cut sides of bread. Top with mozzarella, pepperoni, and red-pepper flakes, if using.
    Bake until cheese is melted and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Top with basil.
