    I would eliminate the 2 T. olive oil. Ground beef doesn't need that to brown. Use Fat-free or 2% shredded cheese. I think the calorie count seems a little high. - 2/3/12

  • Excellent dish. Tasty and easy. The crust is so versatile, because you can easily use it for different fillings, which I alrready tried a couple of days ago with Chicken and sun dried tomatos and fresh basil on top. I will make this dish over and over again. - 10/6/10

    I have my own version of this as well. I use chili powder, garlic powder, and once the meat is cooked I place the meat on a bed of lettuce and then top with sliced green olives, green onion, avocado, salsa etc.
