Had a full day of sledding, shopping or decorating? Settle in for a family-pleasing meal of homemade pizza. With a prebaked crust and simple Alfredo sauce, it’s easy and delicious. —Tammy Hanks, Gainsville, Florida
“I served this to company during the holidays and their response was great," writes Joan Airey of Rivers, Manitoba. "For extra color, I sometimes sprinkle the mushrooms with fresh parsley after they’re baked.”
"I got the recipe for this hearty crowd-pleaser from a friend," reports field editor Patty Kile of Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. "We find it especially delicious since our state is well known for its wonderful fresh mushrooms."
After studying this delightful recipe Joanne Shew Chuck sent from St. Benedict, Saskatchewan, our kitchen staff unrolled a crafty way to display her appetizers—by tying the tidbits with green onion tops to resemble diplomas. Her response? "What a neat idea!" Adds Joanne, "We use these appetizers for all sorts of occasions. In fact, I regularly freeze them so I'm always prepared...even if unexpected guest drop in."—Pasty Dean, Sealy, Texas
Save yourself a trip to Greece and serve this appetizer pizza at your next holiday party. To ensure a crisp and flaky crust, before assembling the pizza, drain the tomato slices on a paper towel to soak up any extra moisture. —Claire Torrice, Oswego, New York
