Great pizza. I used one crust left over from thin pizza crust and a partial roasted chicken breast. I baked the crust for eight min., then put on toppings for another 10 min. DH ate alll but the one slice I had. Very good with the garlic and parmesan flavors in the sauce. The directions said to preheat to 350 but then cook at 450 so I used 450 throughout, preheated my pizza stone and baking.
I used a preprepared base (thin wholegrain) but basically proceded with recipe and just added a sprinkle of mozzarella on the top before putting in the oven, though I cooked the pizza on a rack and in 15 minutes we had a lovely crispy based cheesy chicken pizza.
