Awesome recipe! I had more than enough dough for the crust. Some may prefer a thinner crust, but I am a fan of thick crusts, so it was perfect.

I'd make it again, but I would add some more spices as I thought it was a little bit bland. I also agree that it was quite dry. Next time I will try Sylvie's suggestion and leave out the bread crumbs, and maybe have some gravy as well, just in case.
