It was a hit at church, but I thought it needed some salt. I would probably add salt to the cream cheese mixture. The olives just didn't add enough.

I've been making this delicious appetizer ever since it first appeared in Taste of Home in 1999 and it's always a hit!

This pizza has been a favorite on our Christmas buffet table for over 10 years. I add more lemon juice, zest & dill than what the recipe calls for just to give it an extra punch of flavor.

I made this on a ready-made pizza crust and took it to a party. It was gone in a hurry!
