MY REVIEW

Yum! This was really good. I used all pork sausage and left off the tomato and it was perfect for my family. The sour cream was a nice addition at the end.

I love this recipe! U can put any meats/vegetables u like. I love it b/c of the cream cheese/sour cream mixture. Other breakfast pizza recipes seemed to be missing something, and for me that was it. Yummy!
