"My husband and I love this recipe. I've been making it for years. Sometimes I'll change it up a little and use 1/2 lb of browned pork sausage, a small can of mushrooms, and some chopped green pepper instead. Pepperoni still remains our favorite though. My recipe is slightly different. It calls for 1/2 tsp oregano and 2 cups of cheese. I put the cheese on at the same time as everything else. The cheese makes a little crust on the top but that's the way we like it. I bake it, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. This recipe is supposed to feed 4 but we like it so much that sometimes we almost eat the whole thing ourselves. We'll probably be fighting over the leftovers tomorrow :)"
