I found this recipe at www.pillsbury.com. It's the 2004 Bake-off Contest 41 $5000 America's Greatest Cheese Recipe Award winner. It's a quick way to make a pizza when you're craving pizza but don't want to make your own dough. I altered it by leaving out the butter completely and putting the pizza sauce together with the spices (I used a marinara sauce) inside instead of just for dipping. I used prosciuttio in place of the pepperoni because it's what I had. Very yummy and quick to make. Thanks for posting this!
