"This was great. I made my own thin whole wheat pizza and ended up making 2, two days apart. I used spinach, uncooked and chopped, on the second one. That was good too, maybe better than the broccoli. It is a great way to get your veggies."

"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."
