Reviews for Pizzeria Salad
"This is an excellant recipe. The only thing is my local grocery store does not carry prebaked mini pizza crusts. They do however have Focaccia Bread in the bakery. I cut the circle of bread in half so it isn't so thick and toast it. Then cut it up in place of the mini pizza crusts. Delicious!! After a hard day of physical work, my husband is satisfied when I serve this salad for supper."
