Looking for a healthy dish the whole family will love? Nancy Zimmerman turns to this fast flavorful pizza entree that fills her Cape May Court House home in New Jersey with a simply wonderful aroma. “Refrigerated bread sticks make the crust fuss-free and any leftovers freeze well for another busy day,” she points out. TIP: You can also substitute green peppers instead of yellow and red.

"I am a college student and I made this for my roommates and I. We all absolutely LOVED it. I added Jalapenos and mushrooms to the recipe. My only adjustments would be to add an extra layer of cheese."
