MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2010

This was so very good. I think I'm going to take the advice of another poster and make a homemade crust next time. I'm also going to make two that way I can add the tomatoes and olives on the one for the adults.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 19, 2010

I liked the cheese in the crust but using the refrigerated pizza crust took away from how I think a pizza should taste and I think a chicken pizza should have more of an alfredo sauce. Yes I would make it again but I would use a homemade dough and I would probably use different toppings.

The four starts above was accidental. Definitely 5 starts, but I can't change it!!

This was very good. I used barbecue sauce instead of pizza sauce, and my own not-stuffed crust. But even so, it was extremely tasty. Definitely a keeper.
