I made this hearty meaty & cheesy pizza for our dinner tonight.

It had to be loaded in order to serve it as a dinner item, since my husband is a big meat eater.

I used 4 types of cheeses on this pizza as well as Ground Round & Pepperoni, With the italian Seasoning, mushrooms, olives, Mild cheddar, Shredded Kerry Gold Irish Swiss, Mozzarella & Parmesan/Romano, combined, they all blended well together,& made a very Hearty Pizza Dinner.

My husband loved the combination of all the flavors, & the fact that I made it especially for him. He stated that it was very good & a great dinner idea
