    Easy to make; easier if I place the rolls in the freezer for 20 minutes before cutting; they turn out beautifully. I added olives for my family.

    I have not made these but want to comment on the way TOH presents their recipes for printing always requiring 2 sheets of paper because of layout. print "directions" to the left of "ingredients

    These are easy to make and great for a Sunday afternoon of watching football! This is a cross of pizza and lasagne with the addition of the ricotta cheese.

    Family friendly recipe! Very good!

    These were pretty good. The sauce made them taste better. I left out the mushrooms.

    These were very easy to make and very yummy! I omitted the peppers and mushrooms and switched out the pepperoni for some kolbassa I had on hand. I took them to a party and they were a real hit! Will definitely make them again.

    These were just OK. Was disappointed in the lack of flavor.

    It sounds so good also the combo with the sauce will make it a winner.

    Such a fun and delicious appetizer! Party goers always enjoy these bites and they go together in no time!!! You can serve them with marinara sauce instead of pizza sauce.
