I read a lot of the reviews and learned from those having a hard time rolling out the french bread loaf. I LIGHTLY floured my work surface and my hands and just went slowly and it worked fine. I find the french bread dough is different and works really well with this dish. Using pizza dough would be a second alternative, but the crusty/light french bread dough was really good. I made half of the pie plate (I ended up using a 9 inch DEEP dish pie plate) with the recipe called for here, substituting hot Italian sausage browned/crumbled since we like a "kick" instead of the ground beef. The other half I made a little less fattening with mushrooms, onions and peppers and it turned out excellent. The guys in my family had seconds with the meat side and I loved the veggie side. You could mix/match your own fillings to adapt to your taste...just follow the basic premise of the recipe.

This was really good and much easier to make then I thought it would be. It was very filling! Usually we are pretty good eaters in this house and we couldn't even finish it with 4 people!

I thought this was more like a calzone. It is very good and easy to make. I like how they use the french bread instead of the pizza crust in this recipe.

I've made this a few times and love it! It even tastes great when you warm up the leftovers! The bread is hard to unroll but worth the effort. Have extra sauce on hand for dipping, especially when you eat the leftovers.

This was a very yummie meal! The whole family loved it and my husband even said I need to make it more often!! I did have a horrible time with the crust though. I agree with several of the other ladies, I'm going to try pizza dough next time.

I had high hopes for this recipe. Alas, it didn't taste much like pizza. More like some kind of hamburger helper type meal.

Made this last night. The dough was a bear to unroll and made for a lumpy upper crust. Tasted yummy. I will make this again but think i will try the pizza crust dough next time.

I had a heck of a time unrolling the dough, ended up using Grands, rolling them out and fitting them together on the bottom, added all the ingredients than another layer on the top pinching it to bottom layer. Family loved it,
A winner! said:

WONDERFUL! I have to admit I was a bit skeptical, glad I went ahead and tried it anyways! My Four children had seconds(Which they never do) My hubby thought it was the best! This a versatile recipe and I jazzed it up to everyones liking(ingredient wise). We have already planned out the next time, and what every one is going to have! From a calzone for all to share, or individual(smaller dishes)! Possibilities are endless!%0d%0aLOVE IT! I worked 60+ hours and the house is busy, this was easy enough, quick enough, and definitely one for the keeper section of the book!%0d%0aRock on!
