  1. Great flavor and very easy to make. I made them into a calzone instead of leaving them open. My 2 yr old loves them as well. Thanks for a great recipe.
  2. I saw ncmysteryshopper's picture of these and HAD to make them. I picked a day when I really had no time at all for baking, but the picture of those pides in my head was taunting me!! I got them done just before I had to run out the door and took them with me for a warm snack on the go. Fabulous. I used recipe #23137 for the dough and also altered the types of cheese a bit for what I had in the house. This strikes me as a very flexible recipe.
  3. Fabulous!!! These were devoured so fast by everyone, including a very picky three year old. These remind me of white pizza, which I love! So quick and easy! My favorite pizza dough comes from the refrigerated section of the grocery store! LOL! Made this very quick and easy!
