  1. i used frozen pizza dough and a can of chopped tomatoes. My whole family loved this pizza and cleared their plates (children 8 and 5) and that doesn't always happen. I highly recommend.
  2. I was looking for a turkey sausage pizza but needed to do it quickly. This worked beautifully for me. I did not make the dough or the sauce. I used the canned dough but elected not to precook it and an excellent canned pizza sauce we've used for years. I also added some green pepper. Excellent!
  3. I made the dough and the pizza, but elected to use a pizza sauce I had on hand in the freezer. I loved the dough in this recipe. Great flavor and I even used the dough cycle on my bread machine to mix everything. Thank you for sharing your recipe Cynna!
