“My husband and I love this pizza, which makes a quick, hearty meal for us on busy work nights,” writes Connie Clegg of Frederick, Maryland. “We are eating more vegetarian meals now, and this certainly fits the bill! I buy the packaged baby spinach and use the remaining spinach in a warm spinach salad later in the week.”
This is the perfect appetizer for most any occasion. The tasty bites are easy to assemble and brush with prepared barbecue sauce. When we have a big cookout, they're always a hit...but they make a nice little "extra" for a family dinner, too.

"If you like mushrooms," assures Patricia Kile from Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, "you'll love this appetizer! As soon as I tasted it for the first time at a friend's house, I had to get the recipe." Not on the rich side—but full cheese and seasonings—the puffs are satisfying by themselves or as accompaniments to other dishes.
Heidi Mellon of Waukesha, Wisconsin gets oodles of recipe requests when she serves this outstanding loaf stuffed with Swiss cheese and mushrooms. "It's excellent as an appetizer or served with pasta, chili or spaghetti," she informs.
The popularity of this dish starts with its appearance, according to Carol Severson of Shelton, Washington. "You can sprinkle the pizza with plenty of colorful toppings," she assures. "Guests will be attracted right away. Then, when they have a taste, one slice just won't be enough!"
