I first found this recipe in a Taste of Home Quick Cooking cookbook my mom gave me. We gave it a try the other night just for a change of pace, quick and simple meal. Very easy and tastes really good! We used sliced provolone cheese and 9 pepperoni on each (more complete coverage of the bread). My husband had his as-is, while I tried dipping mine in a little bit of extra sauce. Both ways were enjoyed. The sauce I used was #232188 (KIttencal's No-Cook Pizza Sauce). Turned out great. I look forward to trying other reviewers' suggestions on additional pizza toppings to be used in this. Thanks for posting!
