"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 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?"

"This recipe is excellent!!! I brought it to a party and it received rave reviews plus I was asked by several people for the recipes. One guest labeled it the "best of the appetizers" The reviews I read mentioned the greasiness of the spread. I solved that concern/problem

by using turkey pepperoni. The spread had a good pepperoni taste WITHOUT the grease and fat. Besides being great tasting ... this spread is so easy to prepare."

"This is a neighborhood favorite! I omit or add pizz ingredients based on who I am making it for! It is cooked too long or the temp was too high if there are pools of grease. To solve that problem, place 2 folded paper towels on top for grease to absorb and remove carefully. YUMMY!!!"
