Reviews for Pizza Carbonara
"This is not "Carbonara", there is no egg in it."
"This is now on my rotate list! EVERYONE in the family just loved it, and that just doesn't happen! We have to make multiple recipes, so I cooked the bacon in the oven. This was absolutely delicious and I recommend it without reservation!"
"I made this tonight for the first time and it is officially on my list of favorite recipes. I made a homemade crust instead of store bought and it is simply AMAZING! I love that the "carbonara" is egg free, too. I can't say enough about how great this is. Thank you, Sherry Keethler, for sharing!!"
"Want to try it with home made pizza dough, found store bought hard to work with. Very tasty, a bit time consuming but well worth it"
"good recipe, will make this again!"
"Very good - but be sure to cook the rout long enough to get rid of the pasty taste"
