"very good flavor but I had a hard time cutting the dough into even pieces. Also served warm with pizza sauce."

"We dipped them in pizza sauce. Next time I'll vary the filling and try to find something with more flavor."

"Very good. Super easy to make. Husband and kids loved them. I substituted 2 tablespoons of spinach dip mix and mozzarella. Also, I had no pizza crust, so used three tubes of crescent rolls and they were fine. I served with warm pizza sauce for dipping and DH ate the leftovers cold for lunch the next day and claimed they were even better than the night before!"
