    This is just wrong on so many levels. But maybe its just me. Hopefully my 3 year old son will like it when comes home from school. Wish me luck!

    I just made this with Cheese, Bacon, Onion and Green Peppers, and it was lovely! I used a Spicy Nandos sauce for a kick. I spread the sauce evenly over the dough base and then spread cheese around the sides, and rolled the dough over to create a cheesy filled crust! The only thing I did encounter was when the pizza was cooked, it tasted lovely but the dough was too thick, and tasted bland. Next time I'd spread the dough out thinner, and add about half a tsp of baking powder, instead of one whole tsp. (I used self raising flour, If you're using plain flour, I'd say 1-1/2 tsp.) Nevertheless, next time it shall taste even better!

    This made a nice quick dinner for my children and was tasty. We just used tomato paste rather than mixing with tomato ketchup. Great quick dinner. Would make again

    This was a very nice pizza. I made it with no tomatoes because my sister don't like em. But i would definitely make it again for a special accession.

    This is ideal for my daughter as she has a wheat intolerance. Made it vegetarian with loads of different vegs. Very tasty and we could all enjoy it. Will definitely make it again.

    Really great, quick and easy recipe. I made this when I had absolutely nothing to make in the house. All I had was some sliced chicken breast! I spied this and thought Id give it a go. I thought the scone base would not have been pizza-like but it was like a deep pan style pizza. The only ammendment I would make would be to add dried herbs or oregano to the scone mix the next time as I felt it would need a hint of flavour
