I have been eating this same kind of pizza, but with English muffins (toasted first), since I was about 5 (30+ years ago). I still make them and I even got my husband loving the Velvetta on the little pizzas I make. I'm so glad you published this so that more people can see how delicious this realy is !

I made this for my 16yo son, the pizza fanatic. He really liked it. I used the Velvetta, mozzarella, colby/jack and some mild cheddar. It was a BIG HIT! Thanks for sharing.

Very delicious!! It was good the next day cold as well. I put canadian bacon and mushrooms extra, just cause i dont like plain cheese :)
