I’ve seen this concept a lot on Pinterest, and have had it pinned on my own board to try for quite some time.
Consensus on Pinterest and from a lot of my friends is the difficulty in finding one that actually holds together. I may have just gotten lucky, but mine seemed to work just fine on the first attempt. You can’t hold it like a normal pizza crust and eat it with your hands (well, you can but that would be pretty messy, but to each their own), but I don’t have an issue with eating with a fork.
Hawaiian pizza is my favorite, so I topped it with cheese, ham, and pineapple. I was being a bit lazy and didn’t make my own pizza sauce, and just used Prego tomato sauce instead. I got a large two pack from Costco the other day for use in things like this so I went for it.
