Reviews for Pizza in a Bowl
"This is a wonderful pasta dish full of flavor. It tastes even better the next day."
"Yuck! and it does not look, smell, or taste like pizza."
"This was not too bad, though didn't taste enough like pizza to me. Could be because I used Chef Boyardee brand pizza sauce, and it ended up tasting too much like Chef Boyardee pasta from a can. I also had to substitute cream of chicken soup for the cream of mushroom because my family doesn't care for it. Don't know if that affected the taste too much or not. Overall though, it was very quick and easy to make, and I did like it. I just might try a different brand of pizza sauce next time."
"I fixed this for dinner this evening. It has been awhile since I fixed something that was this easy and fast. And it tasted great. It was a heavy meal, but , oh well!"
"This was sooo good! My kids loved it. Super easy!"
"My family loved this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly, and this was very good. This is definitely a keeper!!"
"What a quick, easy and delicious recipe! Although I made this recipe for a friend, I sampled enough to know that I'll be making it for my husband and myself in the very near future! (By the way, my friend thought it was fantastic and asked for the recipe!)"
"had a good flavor but felt it was too 'heavy', maybe less cheese or cut the mushroom soup down a bit. I'm sure kids would love it but I probably won't make again."
"This was a fantastic meal and so quick to put together! My son, who is a picky eater right now, didn't just have seconds but went back for thirds!"
