This was quite tasty, especially with fresh basil and tomatos from the garden. I added some thin sliced red onion which was a plus and used frozen pizza dough, which was not great for this recipe. I probably used to much of the cooking creme, 1 tub of it will cover two pizzas I believe.

I followed the recipe exactly, except that I used dried basil instead of fresh because that's what I had on hand. No one in the house other than my husband would finish it after more than a couple bites. The flavor of the cooking cream overpowered every other taste and just wasn't appetizing. I won't make this again.

This was very good! I added more veggies, like mushrooms and red bell pepper. Such a great flavor! I couldn't find the ready-to-use crust, so I got dough from the refrigerated section. I'll totally make it again.

Quick, easy, and delicious - perfect for lunch or a snack! I used a Boboli bread shell and I loved the combination of fresh tomatoes and basil. I added a little fresh garlic and a pinch of kosher salt to the tomatoes and overall this was very tasty!

Really easy to make and tastes great. I used frozen pizza dough and it turned out great.

Delicious! I used pita bread instead of pizza crust and added some prosciutto!

the cooking creme was really salty the first time i made this exactly by the recipe, so the next time i mixed half the cooking creme with no salt added tomato sauce, turned out much better! it was a creamy tomato sauce
