Reviews for Makeover Veggie Pizza Squares
"I made this for dinner for my husband and I and it was very good. The only changes I made were regular cream cheese & regular mayo. We are not into fat free/reduced fat products and the added flavor made this recipe wonderful. Thanks for sharing!!"
"Terrific makeover! I would suggest using minced garlic rather than garlic salt and grated carrot as an alternate to black olives. These two changes would lessen the salt and add some more colour and crunchy texture."
