Super easy and delicious! Lunch, dinner or snack, we can’t think of a time when these pizzas wouldn’t come in handy. Serve quartered with toothpicks as appetizers. —Laurie Barmore, Waterford, Wisconsin

"I liked these but my husband did not, probably because it was meatless. I am keeping this recipe as this will make a nice quick lunch for myself."
