"The crust on this is excellent and simple! We weren't really blown away by the sauce and will just use pizza sauce next time, but otherwise this is a major keeper! The kids ate every bite and told me to make it again (ages 5 and 3). The only thing I did different is I used a whole brick of mozzarella cheese on top and after it was done baking, I buttered the edges of the crust with 2Tbs melted Butter, 1/4 tsp Garlic Salt, 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder, and 1/4 tsp Parsley. Just for a tasty seasoned crust."
