    Okay, but no wow factor. Followed the recipe -- not sure what was missing, but thought it rather bland. Don't think I would make it again -- there's so many better CL pizzas recipes.

    This made a quick and yummy weeknight meal. I used mozzarella cheese instead of parmesan by mistake and it made the pizza gooey and decadent. I think a mix of mozz and parm would probably be best. I served it with the CL roma salad with capers, olives and mozzarella.

    Made this with a mix of parmigiana and mozzarella as suggested by the previous reviewer and it was outstanding. It is really rich and filling so I suggest serving it with a salad with an acidic dressing to cut the richness a bit. I`m making it again this week for friends.

    I am surprised that anyone would give this under 5 stars. My 8 year old and I enjoyed this so much that this is the special meal we make together anytime there is an occasion worth celebrating. This may be one of my favorite CL recipes of all time.

    Great recipe. Have probably made this 20 times since it came out in 1999. The supermarket was out of chopped & minced clams so I substituted a can of clam sauce & it came out wonderful so I've been doing that since--plus the can of chopped clams. Probably throws the calorie/fat content off the charts but it sure makes it taste spectacular!

    We love this at our house! It is almost addicting! We add a little crushed red pepper, or a few bacon bits, or chopped tomato... It's always good! I've made it about 20 times since the recipe came out, as did the previous reviewer, and it will always be our go-to when wanting something casually decadent!
