LOVED this pizza. Such an interesting change from traditional pizza.

MY REVIEW

This pizza was okay, but it just didn't do it for me. It was a nice change of pace, but I just felt it was average.

MY REVIEW

I was wondering if my husband would like this and we both really liked it. I used orange peppers instead of green and a Boboli pre-made crust and it turned out great.

Great pizza and so easy to make. It would be simple to double it and make for a party. Try not to load it up too much because the crust cannot take it. Keep it simple but make an extra one!

Yummy! We used a Boboli whole wheat crust instead of the tube. Full of flavor and definitely a unique change of pace.
