"This was quick, easy, and not expensive to make at all. Instead of a jar of purchased pizza sauce, I used an 8 oz can of tomato sauce and added to it: basil, oregano, a pinch of thyme, and garlic powder (not garlic salt). I also tossed some sauteed mushrooms on the pizza. Good stuff!"

"This pizza was very easy and quick. However, I did use a different crust and a I doubled the sausage as two links wouldn't be enough for my teenage boys. That's one of the things I love about these recipes, they are easily adapted without changing the taste. Delicious."

"I would say 5* rating for this recipe! My changes were making my own crust and using 3 cooked Italian turkey sausage links. I DID use more pizza sauce and cheese blend. "Volunteer Field Editor""

"I prepared this pizza today and it was perfect tailgate food for our football game even at home. This is a definite five-star recipe. I used a refrigerated pizza crust in a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan. Just remember to spray the sides with nonstick spray as well as the bottom. I added pepperoni as we are pepperoni fans. Hubby couldn't stop eating this delicious pizza and neither could I. easy and delicious. I highly recommend this pizza.
