MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 19, 2009

"My family of 5 really liked this recipe. I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that I used a homemade pizza crust recipe that is really good along with the pizza ingredients rather than using a ready made crust, but can't say for sure. I used about 1/3 t. of dry mustard and 1/8 t. of cayenne in the sauce. It made a nice, neutral, mild sauce; could detect no heat at all, so if you like a little spice, I would recommend adding more cayenne. The pizza overall, had a good mild flavor; no one flavor stood out and maybe that was a good thing. I added about 2 t. minced garlic with the onion; next time I'll make it 1 T. I really think it needs the garlic. I would probably do garlic salt next time also instead of the regular salt. I'm happy to be the first to recommend this recipe."
