My students are gonna hate me for using them as guinea pigs. This was another recipe I had my students do first, and it was fabulous!
There are so many combinations you can make, I did make them do a "Supreme" pizza version because I was wanting them to try more vegetables.
Also, this was originally from Allrecipes.com and the reviews were mixed on whether it was better at room temp or cold. I personally liked it at room temp AFTER the dressing soaked in a bit.
