Baguette pizza melts recipe

Serve up an easy take on a pizza for a family lunch or TV snack with these baguette melts. Fluffy white baguettes make the perfect base for classic pizza toppings - these are loaded up with a simple tomato and basil sauce, melted mozzarella, pepper, onion and spicy chorizo, but you could add your favourite pizza toppings as you like.
