"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."

"I made this pizza & the smoked gouda did not melt. It got crunchy & resembled shredded plastic. I followed directions exactly. Got my cheese at grocery specialty cheese shop. Melted chesse in above picture is yellow in color, smoked gouda is white? Did I get wrong cheese or was another cheese used above? Colby, Colby/Jack or perhaps Cheddar/Jack."

"I used my own homemade crust, otherwise followed the recipe. Everyone gave it a thumb's up and there wasn't a crumb left for us either."
