"I thought this recipe was just okay, but not great. It really seemed more like a breakfast bake than a pizza. Now that I think about it; it would be an interesting addition to a brunch buffet."

"We had to make our own gluten free crust, but the rest of it I followed the directions exactly. It was a delicious pizza! I'm glad it didn't have a sauce. I don't like heavy sauces on pizzas."

"So good! I substituted turkey sausage and it still tasted great! I also used less mozzarella."

"Love this recipe! It is a regular go-to for a super easy, fast, and delicious meal. I usually serve it with our favorite bagged salad with italian dressing and it pairs really well! Never any left with this one!"
