phyllo pizza? mamma mia

so i bought a box of phyllo or filo dough the other day for the first time. now, what do i make? i did a quick internet search and had a gazillion recipe hits for baklava and spanakopita or at least so it seemed. i was hoping for something different. i wanted something quick, easy, and tasty. I had read a few places of folks using the phyllo for pizza crust. why not? i'll give it a try, the family will love it, right? wrong. i made one the other night for the brood, half and half, one end was plain cheese and the other was onions, black olives and grape tomatoes for the grown-ups and i use that term loosely. no one liked it, but me, oh, and the dog. the kids bolted and begged for mc donald's. big j ate it, but confessed later he didn't think it was that great, the culinary kiss of death. the dog had it for breakfast the next day, no complaints from her.

i adapted the recipe from here. when i make again, i will add a few more sheets of dough for a thicker crust. the dog needs something to nosh on. ciao.
