Reviews for Contest-Winning German Pizza
"How can this have 16 ratings and only 2 reviews? Only adding one star because I had to , to add the comment."
"Hmmm......the idea behind this recipe is great and it tasted ok. I was actually a little excited as I was making it. However, I (and others) just felt like it was a little bland tasting. If I make it again I will add some type of seasoning to the ground beef."
"Awesome! Absolutely delicious! Thank you for sharing."
"Very good as is. Thanks"
"I also decreased the salt in this recipe. Otherwise, everything was perfect. Next time, I would like to try a breakfast version as well as a dinner version using sausage as many have suggested within earlier reviews. Three cheers for german pizza!Does anyone have suggestions for making a larger batch (I.e. casserole dish/baking rather than skillet/cooking)? Thanks!"
"This is an easy recipe to make & tastes good but with all the salt, I do not use that much that is called for. We love it & doesn't take that long to prepare."
"Did I miss reading the oven temperature in this recipe?"
"i used frozen hash browns too."
"i didn't use the green peppers or onion and used sausage instead of the hamburger and i used mozzarella and cheddar. and it was good. will make it again. it would be good for a breakfast or brunch."
"This is a "comfort food" kind of recipe that can easily be adapted for breakfast by changing the beef to sausage. yes, the potatoes forma a hashbrown-type "pizza crust". Hence the "German" in the name.PLEASE: if you haven't made the recipe - DON'T REVIEW IT!!! One and three star comments make it difficult for actual cooks to judge a recipe. And use some common sense, larry."
"Very easy and fast to make. Kids loved it. Will definitely be making again!"
"Larry, I am guessing the potato mixture becomes the "crust". Spaghetti pie is the same way....spaghetti noodles meld togther to form a "crust". Not sure, haven't made this yet."
"Where is the reference to the pizza (dough,pre baked, store bought?)"
