      First I would like to say that I agree with a previous review that the addition of so many eggs and also the cooking method was not a necessity. I doubled the recipe and only used 2 eggs. I made it using leftover egg noodles, sausage meatballs that I crumbled up, and some ricotta, cheddar, and cream cheese for the cheeses. I stirred in your spice recommendations and placed it into a dutch oven casserole dish and baked it for 30 minutes. It came out beautifully albeit not in a 'pizza' formation. I think the ricotta cheese added a 'calzone flair' to this dish. That said, I think this dish is a wonderful way to use up leftovers. A very simple throw-together of endless possibilities. For these reasons we gave it 3 stars. 'We liked it' :)

      This was very good, my entire family enjoyed it. We used vegetables (carrots, green and ref pepper, pepper and broccoli). For the cheese we used Monteray Jack. And I used dried basil and chopped garlic.

      I thought this sounded like a really interesting idea, and it tasted fine, but I don't really see the advantage of adding the egg and frying it up as a pizza. Instead, I would probably just mix it all together, minus the eggs, and serve it as a pasta. I'll admit that mine didn't hold together so well when I flipped it (I forgot to spray the pan before putting everything into it), but I'm not factoring that mistake into my rating. I used penne pasta, pesto sauce, 2 eggs, cooked chicken, guyerre cheese and all the spices. It was fine, but I didn't feel the eggs and cooking style added anything to the taste.
