"This would now be my family's favorite pizza recipe! I didn't use the cream cheese just doubled the sour cream and served with salsa. I love how quick and easy this was and I will be using crescent roll dough for other pizza recipes too."

"We really liked this for a quick, tasty, weeknight meal! I added onions and chopped green chilis to the meat (well, I used EVES ground vegan meat, can't tell the difference from real hambureger and it's the only one I will use). I also added about 1 cut of black beans on top of the meat. Great!"

"I prepared this as a quick and "lighter" dinner. We had a super busy weekend and I wanted something quick and not so heavy on the tummy. Everyone loved it...just perfect for a quick dinner. I'm taking it to my next ladies gathering. Yum"
