    Good pizza. The frozen bread dough as the crust makes for easy assembly, just have to plan the thawing ahead of time.

    I made this recipe for my 13 y/o daughter and friends when she had a sleepover and everyone LOVED it One of the girls mothers called the next week for the recipe because she couldn't stop talking about it. Easy and delicious what more could you ask for!!

    This pizza is extra special with goat cheese crumbles, too. I added roasted peppers instead of the yellow - yummy!
