  5. Spoon the barbecue sauce into each cut, then spread to evenly coat the inside of the bread.

  7. Sprinkle with the Italian seasoning.

  8. Cover with foil, then bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.

  12. Serve with the pineapple rings and cherry tomatoes, topped with shredded basil leaves, and enjoy!
