You can freeze in advance and then pop them out frozen and reheat in a 350 degree over for 20-25 minutes. Great to have on hand for last minute appetizers.

I found this recipe too salty and I think the recipe would be much improved by fretting rid of the processed cheese and substituting other ingredients such as pizza sauce and another type of cheese. As is, I would never make again.

Very good & easy to make ahead. I added a can of pizza sauce and used processed cheese with pepperoni in it. Made topping the day before and just put it on the bread and heated before the party. Put shredded mozzarella on top before baking. Used cocktail rye and mini pitas. Would make again.

A hit with kids and adults at a small get together my husband and I had. We weren't able to find the rye squares at the store that day, so we cut slices of rye bread up in fourths, added some pizza sauce to the bread before adding the topping, and topped with a bit of parm and mozz. They were great!

These are addictive! My mom has my family hooked on these. Use Jimmy Dean sage sausage ('lite' if you're feel'in guilty LOL), add some chopped cilantro and chopped garlic to cooking mixture) This recipe accounts for about 3 added lbs this holiday!

Yummy Yummy! These were very good. I used American cheese slices instead of Velveeta type cheese, because that's what I had on hand. I also mixed in a little pizza sauce with everything else, but it probably didn't make much difference. 12 min. is plenty unless you like them more crisp.

These were really good and a easy appetizer. I don't think pizza is a good name for them though. i couldn't find cocktail rye bread so I used pumpernickle and they were delicious.
