This is my new latest obsession! I thought I would need some sort of sauce, but the blend of flavors in this hold their own! Great with a glass of red wine.. wow!!
We thought this pizza had great flavor. I was originally going to give this recipe a 3 because of the problems I had with prep but the flavor made us give it a four. I did not think it was "quick" - even considering that I was making this for the first time. I had problems with the crust. It was so crumbly that I couldn't get it to form a ball. So I had to add more oil and yogurt. And then I had a difficult time rolling out the crust. I was super frustrated at this point. Everything else was easy. I baked my pizza on a stone and the cheese melted over (onto my oven floor) a lot. But the taste was wonderful. It is a great vegetarian meal but I wouldn't call it quick.
I would make a different crust next time, like others I had some problems with it holding together, even after adding extra oil & yogurt. But the flavor! YUM! I'm always looking for vegetarian recipes that will fly under my meat-happy family's radar, and with another crust, this is going in my rotation.
