This was simple to make and very tasty. I used dried basil and swiss cheese because I had them on hand. Added crumbled, cooked mild Italian sausage. DH loved it, too. Thanks for a great recipe SilverOpera!

Yummy! This was so simple and good. I used my microwave omelet maker and sauteed a little red bell pepper, onions, and mushrooms to add along with some pepperoni. Very quick and tasty. Thanks SilverOpera. Made for Cookbook Tag.
