MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 1, 2013

I left out the mushrooms because my husband doesn't care for them and the olives because I didn't have any on hand. It was still loaded with vegetables. I used my own pizza dough made in my bread maker. I loved it. My family said they didn't mind it, but didn't care for it as much as I did. But then, I'm the vegetarian in our household.
