Directions

A new family favorite!! Quick, easy & full of flavor. We added croutons to our salad which was a nice extra crunch!

I made this with ready made chicken and garlic flat bread to save time on a busy day. They turned out fabulous. Picky kids made their own with pepperoni and tomatoes and snacked on lettuce on the side. Will make these again for sure.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 24, 2013

Really good! I used additional tomatoes and put some on the pizza before baking--then added rest on top w/ lettuce after baking. I also used a Monterey PEPPER Jack cheese which gave it some bite. I added some sliced black olives for color & a little 'extra'. Excellent results. Leftovers good, too!
