Recipe by Parkers Mom

This is so delicious and quick. This is also great to take to a pot luck. This is very much kid friendly and taste very similar to a pizza.

Top Review by Peppermint Wind

I was looking for a recipe to bring to a pot luck that I didn't have to worry about mayonnaise in (it goes bad so quickly in the heat. Also, My oldest son no longer likes mayo). We added quartered cherry tomatoes, then chives, and basil from our garden. Very good. Quick, easy, versatile - you could add almost any veggie to it or make it without pepperoni if you didn't have any. We'll definitely make this again.
