    I wasn't sure this would be very good, but it was amazing! My husband loved it!! The bean paste is not bland at all. I think it just depends on how big your garlic are. I had two really big ones and it almost gave it too much of a kick. Next time I am going to try to use smaller garlics. - 11/8/08

    Very good! If you want something a little lower carb, I would recommend using La Tortilla Factory tortillas as the base instead. They only have 80 calories and tons of fiber! - 4/3/08

    Absolutely delicious and what a wonderful recipe to have for a guilt free pizza, loved the fresh basil and bean paste. I use fresh herbs in lots of my food, makes it tasty. Will make this again definitely! - 3/15/08

    I thought it was a little bland, like the bean mixture needed something else. I ended up putting a tablespoon of spaghetti sauce, which was ok, but I'm thinking of trying to mix in some pesto with the bean mixture next time. Otherwise, pretty good. - 3/21/07

    I love the sun-dried tomato and fresh basil, and I always love cheese, but the bean spread was a little weird for me. My husband enjoyed its texture, though. And it is definitely very filling. - 3/18/08

    I agree that the bean paste could use a little something extra. I also might try it with fat free/reduced fat feta rather than mozzarella. But definitely nourishing and interesting. - 9/19/07

    It had a good flavor, but it was a little too unusual for me. I wasn't used to the tastes and textures of the sun-dried tomatoes or fresh basil. The beans were OK though. - 3/17/07

    It's interesting... very filling. I went out of my comfort zone a little on this one. I don't think I like sun-dried tomatoes.
    You can use any extra bean mixture as a dip for pita or bagel chips! - 3/14/07

    Cheated a little--added 2 TB of a prepared Pesto Rosso (sundried tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, parmesan). A little extra garlic, too. Sauteed portobello mushrooms and a bit of onion in olive oil, then topped with cheese. Rave reviews from my family. Would try it with green pesto for the puree too - 4/26/12

    I really liked thisl, even though I'm normally a pizza purist (tomato sauce and cheese only). I did modify it a little the second time I made it: I doubled the cheese and only used half a can of beans. I thought the "sauce" was a little overwhelming the first time, and the cheese a little skimpy. - 3/22/09

  • This sounds great. Thanks. FYI: I learned to make my own pizza shells during my many assignments in far off places to meet demands of pizza hungry kids. I'd make about 35-40 shells at a time. As a result, our home was a popular gathering spot among the US dip community abroad. - 8/30/11
