Reviews for Colorful Crab Appetizer Pizza
"I've been making this delicious appetizer ever since it first appeared in Taste of Home in 1999 and it's always a hit!"
"This pizza has been a favorite on our Christmas buffet table for over 10 years. I add more lemon juice, zest & dill than what the recipe calls for just to give it an extra punch of flavor."
"I made this on a ready-made pizza crust and took it to a party. It was gone in a hurry!"
"it was okay. I don't think I'll ever make it again"
"I think this recipe would be great using shrimp or a combination. Cant wait to try it.Barb Krueger"
