"This was good. Next time I will add more cheese and double maybe triple the pepperoni."
"Mine turned out extremely gooey in the center; don't know what happened. I baked for 40 min at 350; will use a different baking dish next time. If I had left it in the oven any longer it would have burned. Turned out very pretty and everyone loved the parts that were cooked."
"I would take out the pepper."
"I've made this I live in a senior citizen building and took a down as a snack for everybody they just loved it , I had Mariner warm the marinara sauce for dipping added Italian cheese to the marinara sauce. Delich."
"By the way this disappeared from the platter, it must have been a huge success... I didn't even get a bite as it was gone before I could grab some. I found it much easier to use a large plastic dish tub to mix the cut up dough pieces with the oil and other ingredients, and I used my hands instead of a spoon... I doubled the amount of pepperoni. cheese, and marinara, and added some tiny bits of diced onion and red bell pepper, and I had several other sauces available on the side. I provided a large serving fork to break away the pieces. I will make this again."
"Originally made this for a playoff game potluck. Was a big hit! We put several different dipping sauces with it, so people could switch it up a bit (ranch, marinara, a few cheese sauces). Everyone was asking for the recipe! Kids and adults alike enjoyed this "alternative" to regular pizza!"
"I made this took it to a church fellowship and everyone was asking who mde it they loved it especially the teens.. great recipe ( I was ask to bring it every month)"
"I was staying with my 15 and 13 year old grandsons and I had save this because I thought they would like this. It was very easy to make. We had it for a lite lunch. Both of them liked it. I would like to try it with yeast dough. The 13 year old loved it, made me write the recipe for his mother.This is what he wants for his birthday dinner."
"Way too much bread. It's like just eating pizza crust."
