This was AWESOME.... A few reviewerssaid that they couldn't keep the toppings on the bread... I bought the wider italian bread, and scooped out some of the bread to make room for the fillings.. It was SOOOOooooo good... Pleased even the toughest palates.. And the Hot Sausage.. Not a big deal.. I bought the premio links, and decased them.. and just fried it up like chop meat.. YUM!!

Oh my goodness, this is amazingly good!!! i'm giving this five stars despite the fact that i made a couple of changes, but it's just because i'm sure it would be delicious as it is stated. I first broiled the bread for 2-3 minutes. Ok, i know this totally modifies the recipe, but i had to use hot dogs instead of hot italian sausage 'cause that's what i had on hand, but next time i'm using the hot sausage. Forgot about the black olives and increased the amount of dried oregano to 1/2 teaspoon. Also omitted the olive oil 'cause i wanted to reduce the fats, and i'll tell you i didn't miss it. We had this for dinner yesterday night and we're still raving..... Thank you thank you thank you Diane, your papa is a genius!

We used sweet italian sausage with the casing removed instead of the hot bulk pork and it was wonderful!
