As I college student, I love to make this recipe right before exam week as it is even better reheated. I plucked the recipe from the Jimmy Dean website.

Great. Everybody loved it. We added pizza ingredients: mushrooms, olives, red peppers. Used fresh basil and substituted a can of diced tomatoes for one can of tomato sauce. In my haste, I also had to put the mozzarella on at the end (with about 5 minutes left) of cooking.
