    We usually make this on a large flatbread instead of a pizza crust. It makes a great neopolitan like pizza that way. Nice and crispy! We sometimes add pesto too! We do everything by sight. Meaning we add as much cheese or tomatoes as we want so that it is never too cheesy or has too many tomatoes. The bacon is great with all the flavors.  -  16 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I definitely liked the ingredients (though I couldn't find chevre and made the poor choice of substituting feta). However, because the recipe doesn't say what size pizza crust to use, I ended up with too much topping on too small a crust, making my finished product WAY too thick with cheese and just a little overwhelming. I still can't say what size crust is meant to be used, but my advice is to get a really BIG one.  -  14 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a terrific pizza. The combination of ingredients is both savory and spicy, and the chevre cheese on top is to die for! Thanks for the recipe.  -  31 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
