Reviews for Strawberry Pizza
"Great recipe, love the homemade crust. When short on time I use a roll of sugar cookie dough instead, also use parchment paper to get off pan easier!"
"Strawberry pizza is so good, my family makes it any time we have all the ingredients. It's a keeper and definitely going in my recipe box, as it's one we make any time we're doing a special event."
"When I take this to potlucks, I make two and they disappear fast. Delicious!!"
