After reading all the reviews I was a bit conflicted about how to proceed. So, I reverted to the half and half approach. On one half of the pizza, I followed the basic intent of the recipe. I used shrimp instead of chicken, a substitution I often make. And, I used a mix of colby and pepper jack for the cheese. I also added a bit of freshly chopped garlic to the crust before adding the sauce. The combination of flavors is excellent and for us the amounts are off. I used only 1/2 cup sauce on the entire pizza and it was plenty - one cup would have been way too much for our tastes. I also cut down on the amounts of all the other ingredients. I guess I tend to take a 'less is more' approach to pizza toppings. Adjusted for the half of the pizza, I used only 1/2 the amount of sauce and probably 1/3 the amount of the other ingredients listed in the recipe. On the second half I subbed a mix of mozzarella and colby, and I left off the pepperocini and subbed carmelized onions for regular. That half was also excellent - a far more mellow approach. Of the two, we preferred the original combination of flavors designated in the recipe - just at much smaller amounts. Flavor = 5 star, amounts = 3 star for an average of a 4.
