This was really really good. The pizza as a whole was a tad greasy, but no more than a regular delivery pizza. I only made 3 small changes: used mini pepperoni, and only about half of a normal size pouch (so I think that's about 2-3oz). I didn't have fresh basil and felt too lazy to go to the grocery store for just that item, so I used dry; about 1 tsp seemed like a good amount. Next time I'll splurge on the fresh basil because I bet it makes this pizza taste even more amazing. Lastly I used an Italian cheese mix, not just mozzarella. Loved this, it was easy and great way to use leftover sausage & pepperoni.

Why do people give bad ratings for something they haven't even tried? IT WAS GREAT!

This pizza was very good. It kinda fooled people with the sausage and pepperoni on the bottom where you couldn't see them. Will make again .

We have made this since it was first published in TOH 2010!! LOVE IT!! We use grilled chicken breast tossed with Buffalo wing sauce instead of sausage sometimes! Great for football parties!

This might be one of THE BEST pizza recipes my husband and I have ever tasted. For convenience, I use a can of drained "Italian Style" diced tomatoes...the topping is sooo good.
