  1. So so so good! I made my own crust and prebaked it for 10 minutes. Didn't put any crushed red pepper on it. Really great!
  2. Hubby & I loved this. I used a pizza crust I made myself, and used vine ripened tomato instead of plum. I also didn't have any garlic powder or garlic, so I skipped that ingredient. Still it was a great meal, and really easy. We will keep this recipe on hand to make again. Thanks for posting it.
  3. I made many changes to this recipe based on what I had available but I'd like to think I stayed somewhat true to the recipe :-) I used fat free cottage cheese for the ricotta, a slice of whole wheat bread for the "crust" & omitted the pepper flakes & tomato. I "played" with some Italian seasonings I had in my spice rack & baked it in my toaster oven for 10 min at 400. It was so good--cheesy, flavorful & healthy. Thanks so much for sharing this; another great pizza!
  4. Great quick dinner!! I did make a few changes: left out the ricotta and tomato, spread the crust with pesto before topping with cheese, and added kalamata olives. Tasted like restaurant pizza to us. Great recipe!!
  5. Really good, even better than I thought it would be. Wouldn't change a thing. Leftovers were yummy, too. In less time than it takes for a pizza to be delivered, we had a healthy and delicious meal. I love those Cooking Light recipes. Thanks for sharing!
