Sometimes my family likes their pizza crust extra crispy, so I prebake the crust for 5 minutes before adding the toppings. There are never leftovers. —Laura McDowell, Lake Villa, Illinois

"This pizza is delicious. If one is going to cook, one has to expect some prep work. People today are so LAZY. No wonder they are so fat. They have no idea what they put in their mouths. My husband loved the pizza he is the meat eater."

"Very hearty pizza. Didn't have any leftover beef, so I grilled a ribeye to use. Will also cook the crust for 5 minutes before topping next time."

"Not sure why people say this has alot of prepwork...it doesn't. You can't expect to just throw a few things together and call it "cooking". This pizza is amazing! Had it the other day and I'm making it again tonight. I followed the recipe exactly except ommited the onions."

"Great weekenight dinner. I followed the recipes except omitted the pickled pepper rings. I used leftover flank steak. The crust definitely needs to be prebaked."

"Edible but not delicious. It's OK. Lots of prep. work. Prefer traditional pizza, I guess. Flavor combination was strange. Philly cheese steak should be left alone, as a sandwich, not made into other recipes (my opinion). Good try but does not pop with the expected flavor."

"I made the recipe today. It has kept my interest for a long time. I think I needed more onions. I only did half of a small onion. That was on me. A little in way of prep work but all in all a good pizza. Thanks for the recipe!"
