Reviews for Contest-Winning Greek Pizza
"I have to admit, I modified it alot. I added a mixture of mint, basil, garlic and onion powder, marjoram and thyme to the ricotta mixture. Then I added chicken and minced garlic and a little olive oil."
"I'm surprised this is a contest winning recipe. I made it exactly as directed. Both my husband and I found it rather bland... and since when is Greek food bland? It definitely seemed to be missing something. A kick. A zing. Something worthy of the Greek name. Artichoke hearts? Fresh basil? Olives? I do, however, like the foundation of this recipe and I only say I'll make this again because I'll use the recipe as a base. However, I will be experimenting with ingredients to add to make it more flavorful. Who says healthy can't have flavor!!!"
