"Instead of frozen bread dough I used fresh wheat dough. Absolutely delicious, the flavor in this is incredible!!"

"This is so good we have to double the recipe so we can have left overs. We cook it on pizza stones until the crust is crisp. The gargonzola is a great accent, but don't overdue it, a little goes a long way."
