    I'd prepared this recipe back when it came out for Taste of Home in 2003! I'd taken it to a chapel function and it was a big hit! I did not use the olives: I'd used a red or green pepper and left the mushroom stems and pieces UNCHOPPED, but DRAINED! I didn't have the pepperoni at the time, so I'd used beef snack sticks and 1 medium onion!

    My husband and I LOVED this (I cut it in half for just the two of us). I do think it was a little heavy on the green olives, and that's coming from someone who loves green olives. Next time I'll back off a little on that. This is a great recipe because you can tweak it to suit your tastes. We used pieces of flat bread and spooned the pizza spread on top. I'm definitely making this again.

    I have made this more times than I can count. It is a fantastic appetizer and simple to prepare. There is never any left, and people always want the recipe. We serve it with multi-grain Scoops.

    I plan to make this this weekend - sounds sinfully delicious, would have given it 5 stars if not for my question: just counting the # of cups in the ingredients, the amount will come to waaaay more than the 6 cups printed. I will plan to use a 13 x 9 dish, if not larger. Any other similar observations about the amount?

    I have this recipe in a cookbook I wrote, and it's rated number 1 appetizer requested for parties! I brown my pepperoni to get some of the grease out and then drain it on papper towels. I also use Canola Mayonnaise for less fat. This is the best recipe ever!! Just ask the Coke girls in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin!!

    I have made this recipe a couple of times and it was a hit. I am wondering though, if I have all the ingredients mixed up, can I freeze it and bake it later?

    Make this all the time when we have guests over, or even when we don't. I have never changed a thing when making. Always a hit!
