I prefer Italian food, but my brother is a big fan of Mexican cooking. I combined my preferences with his and came up with this recipe. He loved it. If you prefer a spicier flavor, just use hotter salsa. —Carly Curtin, Ellicott City, Maryland

"Really like this recipe! Made with no alterations for our appetizer night. It paired really well with the toasted Mexican ravioli"

"Made filling as per recipe but did use the Pillsbury pizza crust instead of making it from scratch to save some time. I'll definitely make again and hopefully be able to make the entire recipe as written and will then probably give it a full 5 stars!! Made it for a football party and went over very well with all."

"These were very good! I thought it was a lot of work for a "simple" meal, but the end result was still very good!"

"Made this recipe as written except that I used green pepper instead of yellow since that is what I had. My family loved it. We decided if time was a factor the filling could easily be used for tacos or burritos. Will definitely make this again."

"Great recipe, healthy & yummy! Since didn't have much time, I used Pillsbury pizza dough, still turned out great. This is a keeper, for the time that I run out of ideas of what to make.

Thank you so much for sharing your recipe."

"Used a left over roasted chicken, left out the cumin-not a fan. Otherwise would not change a thing! Also delicious reheated in the oven @250 for about 18 min."

"I made several changes, the first of which was not using a bread machine, since I don't have one. I dissolved the yeast in the water (but at 90-110 degrees), then added the rest of the dough ingredients (except the milk powder, which I left out), and kneaded it with my mixer until smooth (around 7ish minutes). Then I sprayed with Pam and covered to let double (around 30 minutes). I also used mozzarella and cheddar instead of the Mexican blend because I wanted to use my mozzarella that I had left over. It was really tasty, and it looked really nice."
