    Used canned clams and had no clam flavor. It was suggested to use frozen clams which I will try next time. I also don't like the taste of oregano so I will omit that. The bacon flavor was good. I used a pizza crust mix and it was cooked and very brown after the first 6 minute cook. After putting back in the oven with the ingredients on it I only baked 10 minutes and it was done.
