This budget friendly, great tasting favorite is a snap to prepare and easily tweaked to your own personal tastes by the addition of other fresh ingredients, add sliced mushrooms, peppers etc. Try using baby spinach leaves, thin sliced red onions, mushrooms and Feta cheese instead of the mozzzarella.. the possibilites are as endless as your imagination.. the servings depend on if it's used as a snack or a meal

What is nice about this recipe is everyone can have what they want. I chose to make this as a nice midnight snack. At first the boys were not sure if they would like this compared to ordering out but they were quite surprised with the out come. I realy enjoyed making this for the boys and of course us.
