A Must Have - Again!! So happy I found this recipe!! While my husband did not care for the onion on it (he's not an onion lover!) he even said it was good & a welcome change to the standard flavor pizza. I may add pineapple chunks the next time I make it for another variation - for the sweet/sour effect. Or instead of chicken, maybe use shrimp! March 22, 2013
