MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 8, 2011

Very good pizza. I used rotisserie chicken and a combination of taco sauce and mild picante sauce. It could use more green pepper.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 10, 2009

Made this tonight and it was pretty good. I added some black beans and corn to it, next time I'll add some chiles.
