I made this using leftover sauce from Kickin' Baked Rigatoni, topped with yellow bell peppers, oregano, parsley and garlic powder. Making on a cookie sheet pan. Very Good Thanks!!

This has become my standard "I am too lazy to cook" meal. I love how the cornmeal gives the crust a nice nutty crunch. This recipe is so flexible! I have used pepperoni, sausage, hamburger..I even once used SteakUms from the freezer section with onions, mushrooms and peppers for a Philly Cheesteak Pizza!! WOW!

Great idea! And I liked the authenticity that the corn meal gave it. It was very tasty, with a nice thick crust. But since I'm not an Italian sausage person, I minced some pepperoni instead.
