You may use a store bought pizza crust if you don't want to make the dough yourself.

Top Review by Dr. Jenny

We used a home-made crust that we had left over from another recipe. I used ground beef and the rest of the ingredients as specified. As another reviewer suggested, the ground beef didn't do it for us, and I agree this would be better with just the veggies and feta. If you are going to use the ground beef, you might want to add a little more salt. I liked the combination of feta, tomatoes, artichokes and mushrooms (I used portabellas). Thanks!
