Comments:

“I made this yesterday for dinner and everybody just loved it! Very easy to make and great taste! I used two instead of only one onion and for the crust I made a dough out of the following ingredients: 250 g flour, 4 ts baking powder, 125 g low fat curd cheese, 75 ml milk, 75 ml sunflower oil and 25 g sunflower seeds. Because I didn’t have any basil I simply used rosemary instead, which went very well with the peppers. Thanks VickyJ for sharing such an outstanding recipe!”
