This was easy to put together. And tasted pretty good. I felt that it needs a little more spices but that could be the sauce I used. I used tomatoe and basil.I would love to try this with a combo of cheddar and mozzarella then it would be perfect. Thanks for a good recipe. I will make this again
This was a very good Pepperoni Casserole. Simple and easy to fix. Thanks for posting.
I thought this was very good. I added onions and green peppers and used pizza sauce. Turned out great! Thanks
