"Fresh looking and tasting, but a little bland. I put sliced Italian Sausage on it though, and that was excellent."

MY REVIEW

"Absolutely fabulous!! The only change I made was that I used a large can of crushed tomatoes instead of diced. I didn't have them on hand. I also used grated Parmesan instead of shredded. Will most definitely make again."
