No..I did not make this pizza. This is a frozen cheese pizza that is suitable for vegetarian. That is the only pizza that we can eat here, so I just need a little bit of creativitiness by adding garlic chicken salami, onion and red peppers. And it is ready after 25 minutes baking in the oven.It is so easy, fast and most important thing I don't have to do all the cooking things. It makes my life so much easier.
