      This was a good recipe. A good snack food to make to eat while watching a game on TV. Thank you for sharing.

      I have made this recipe twice (Octoberfest at home & office luncheon) with excellent results & multiple requests for the recipe. The pizza dough was made in the food processor in only a few minutes. My type of recipe...not a lot of work & great dish. Thanks so much for the posting!
