Expert Tips

  • *All breads made with at least 8 grams whole grain. At least 48 grams whole grain recommended daily.
  • Using Gorgonzola cheese here will help you cut down on fat, but not on flavor. Gorgonzola has a strong and slightly pungent flavor, so you need only a small amount to make a big flavor impact.
  • Serving a crowd? Cut into small squares, and this pizza can serve 24!
