"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."

"Great recipe. Everyone loved it. I substituted mushrooms for the olives only because of personal taste."
