My friend adapted this from a Pampered Chef recipe and served it for dinner last night with a salad. I begged for the recipe and am pleased to share it will all of you. Cook time includes standing time.

This was quick and delicious. My husband and I are spinch lovers so devoured your spinach version! We made a variation without the spinach - just pepperoni, green pepper and cheese filling for our children. That turned out quite nicley too! This was a very nice "twist" on a family favorite. ;) Thanks MsKittyKat
Yum! I don't even like olives, and I have to admit, this was DELICIOUS! Couldn't even taste 'em in there! I didn't have any spinach, so I left that out; otherwise, I stuck to the recipe. Thanks for a posting!
I love this recipe!!! I also adopted it about 5 years about, when I first heard about pampered chef at a pc party that a friend was having. That recipe had just came out, so the lady was making it for the group to try, after that I always make it at parties & everyone says "I have to have that recipe!!"
