Rating: 6.5/10

I would have liked this recipe better if it didn’t have so much marinara sauce. I’m not big on a lot of marinara unless it’s mixed in with something like pasta. There are only three ingredients in this snack and while it’s pretty easy to make, it’s just okay. I used croutons from the dining hall and crackers to dip in, and it just didn’t feel like I was eating a pretend pizza. If you like a lot of sauce on your pizza, this recipe is for you. It’s not a terrible snack to have on a late night while watching Netflix, you just need some kind of bread for the dipping (I suggest French bread or even breadsticks).
