Expert Tips

You can't please all the people all the time, but you certainly have a good shot at pleasing more people with this pizza that can be tailored to fit finicky tastes. Still not convinced? Go half and half--prepare one flavor on one half of a 15x10-inch rectangle of dough and choose a different version for the other half. It's twice the flavors and half the work!

--Substitute shredded spinach for the romaine lettuce, chopped unpeeled red apple for the broccoli and chopped walnuts for the carrot.

--Substitute ranch dressing for the Caesar dressing, chopped yellow or orange bell pepper for the broccoli and chopped plum (Roma) tomatoes for the carrots.
