I am a member of the MFP group here and have been inspired to cut back on the calories while still eating good food. 186 calories p/serving

I have no clue where I got this recipe. It was hand-written and stuffed into my 3-ring binder.

This crust is made ahead of time and baked. After the crust is done, add your favorite toppings and then re-bake.

The crust has a slight crunch, but does not hold up well to next-day leftovers so consider using smaller personal pan sizes and refrigerate any unwanted "dough" to use later.

P.S. This is not my photo. I will post a pic when I make it next.
