These were great! We subbed a lot: pepperoni for the sausage, red pepper for the green, and wonton wrappers for the egg roll wrappers. We also added black olives, and used sour cream for dipping. YUM!
My family LOVED this recipe. Even my very picky 4 year old ate these. I added the ingredients that we like on pizza, which was ham, pepperoni and mushrooms, pizza sauce and cheese. Dh was sad when there were no leftover to take to work for his lunch. This is a definate keeper. Thanks for posting
