Cook's tips: This recipe is as customizable as any pizza. Often I use our pizza cheese blend since it has extra spices but if it don't have a pack on hand it's not a critical part of the recipe... I'll just use more shredded white cheddar and add some Italian seasoning. I also like to add sauteed mushrooms, black olives, extra onions, or cubed ham depending on what ingredients I have on hand and what I'm hungry for at the moment. :)
