    I made this recipe using only 1 lb of ground beef and a total of 1 cup of the two cheeses and it was still fabulous! It dropped the calories to serving to 475 /serving. Thanks for the great recipe.

    I used italian ground turkey plus upped the veggies to half an onion and an entire green bell pepper, plus used fresh mushrooms. Turned out yummy, though could have used a little more pizza sauce(this could be from me increasing the veggies though). Overall a good recipe to experiment with.

    Great recipe. I did sub Canadian bacon for the pepperoni. Will definitely make again.

    Prepared this on the stovetop, and left out the green pepper and pepperoni. Also substituted American cheese. Very good!

    Great recipe! The only thing I changed is to add Italian sausage instead of burger. Yum!!

    Amazing! Also, is a great make ahead and freezer friendly meal. The only changes I made were leaving out the mushrooms (Just because I’m not a fan), and using Bow ties instead of egg noodles because I had them on hand. I love pepperoni anything and this dish lived up to the high expectations that I had.

    Pretty good. I halved this, and made it in a 8x8 dish. I baked it for about 16 mins, and I think it still needed to bake longer. Good recipe to play around with the ingredients.
