MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 9, 2015

"Very delicious! Great flavor! Love the Italian chicken sausages on there! Better than some of the gourmet pizza that we have had out. The only modification I did was to make my own pizza crust. One of the reviewers mentioned a bitter taste. I used Prego Homestyle Alfredo sauce and did not have any problems, but I agree with her in that some of the store bought alfredo sauces do have strange after tastes."

"Tough to rate something I couldn't get the kids to even try. This recipe is definitely not kid friendly if you have picky eaters, or even regular eaters. My husband and I thought it was okay, but we would have preferred shredded or cooked chicken instead of the chicken sausage."

"I'm a little conflicted on how to rate this. I could barely eat this because of the bitter aftertaste, however, it could have been due to the Alfredo sauce that I chose. I used Emeril'S 4 Cheese Alfredo."
