MY REVIEW

"We tried this recipe last night and it was quite tasty. However, I think next time we will try to make a different version using: Diced cooked chicken, fresh spinach leaves, crumbled bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms and either Italian cheese blend or a little feta cheese (or both). You can totally make this your own with whatever ingredients you enjoy. Another idea, would be to add strips of mozzarella cheese sticks to the crust before sealing the edges together. So many possibilities!!! :-)"

"It was really quite yummy - but the top layer of dough was very undercooked, and the cheese was starting to burn. When I make it again, I will bake for about 12-15 min before adding the cheeses on top, and that should solve the problem."

"So good....and yummy. .....I did use 2 cans of pizza doughfor my pizza pie crust & the top layer however. It turned out great too! This is a keeper pizza pie recipe that really changes your regular ol slice of pizza into something with much more depth of textures and flavors....oh yea, I also added a sprinkle of bacon bits to the inside toppings. Thanks for Sharing!"

"Excellent! Pizza Night is Friday Night in our house and this was a winner. I will admit that frozen bread dough can be a pain to spread in the pan but in the end it was worth it!"
