    I made this and it tasted great, but 6 sheets of phyllo didn't seem like enough. The crust was as flat as can be. Might try with puff pastry next time. I also dotted the dough with cream cheese before adding the veggies for some extra creaminess.

    I was very excited to make this recipe too.. I used a dish that was deep and I cut back on the butter a little, but other than that is wonderful, will be making this again!

    I was excited to make this recipe...sounded delish...and might be...However when I started to prepare the recipe I couldn't figure out the phylo dough...I used 5 sheets, they browned and weren't fluffy at all...also WAY to greasy! It looked beautiful but I tossed it out. I might try again using a puff pastry base and less butter and oil.

    I can figure out the recipe even though there might be miss prints. The recipe sounds delicious and I am collecting tart and pizza dough recipes. This is an excellent addition. What I need to know is what are Kalamata olives and where would be the best place to buy them?

    Not a very well written recipe. Doesn't say what size pan. Says cut into 6 pieces but serves 4.

    OK, am I missing something? The ingredients list 2 sheets of phyllo, but the directions say "Repeat, layering remaining 5 sheets dough...: Do I cut the 2 sheets in thirds or are there 6 12x17 sheets? Thanks. Rometta
