Very good appetizer and I thought a nice change from the usual artichoke dip everyone always makes. I struggled getting the amount of dough to reach 1 1/2" up all the sides of a 9X13 pan so it wasn't equal all around. The sides where the dough wasn't up high enough it still cooked great so I think next time I won't worry about the edge crust and just line the bottom with the dough. My husband and our guests actually preferred the center pieces without the side crust. Not sure why exactly but that's what my "raters" said. Thanks for sharing this will be a keeper at our house.
