I make no personal claim to this. I found it on a German recipe site. You will need a pan that makes the raised edge, I think they call them a flan pan. Amazon.com for about $11, postage paid, or thereabouts.

I have mopdified it slightly and added a couple topping variations of my own. Also if you are in a hurry a nice thick canned pizza crust works well.,
