YUMMY!  I generally make mine with just cheese on top and I do a layer of mixed veggies or any leftover veggies in between my meat layer.  My meat layer i just have it spiced and have onions and diced tomatoes.

 garlic, cumin, worcestshire (sp?), paprika, moringa (has iron, vitamin C, calcium, and much more), maybe some chili powder, turmeric, salt and pepper.  Some spices I just add more for their health qualities than their taste such as turmeric.  I like food as medicine.

Never heard of moringa.  I do not like cumin though for some reason.   I prefer to get health benefits as well from food.  Make eating count for something .

Moringa's health benefits

Antioxidant activity - According to analysis, the powdered leaves of the moringa tree (which is the way most people consume moringa) contains 46 types of antioxidants. One serving, in fact, contains 22 percent of our recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin C, one of the most important antioxidants on Earth, and a whopping 272 percent of our RDI of vitamin A. Antioxidants help to neutralize the devastating impact of free radicals, thereby guarding us from cancer and degenerative diseases such as macular degeneration and cystic fibrosis.

Rich in amino acids - The leaves of the moringa tree contain 18 amino acids, eight of which are essential amino acids, making them a "complete" protein - a rarity in the plant world. Indeed, moringa's protein content rivals that of meat, making it an excellent source of protein for vegetarians and vegans. Protein is, of course, needed to build muscle, cartilage, bones, skin and blood and is also needed to produce enzymes and hormones.

Calcium and magnesium - One serving of moringa leaves provides us with approximately 125 percent of our RDI of calcium and 61 percent of our RDI of magnesium. These two trace minerals work in synergy; while calcium is needed to build strong bones and teeth, we also need magnesium to help us absorb it. Since moringa contains generous quantities of both, it is especially good at guarding us from osteoporosis and other bone conditions.

Extensive nutrient concentrations - Moringa leaves contain 90 different types of nutrients, including four times more calcium than milk, four times more potassium than bananas, four times more vitamin A than carrots, 50 times more vitamin B3 than peanuts, 36 times more magnesium than eggs, and 25 times more iron than spinach. It also includes high amounts of additional nutrients such as dietary fiber, iodine, lutein, zinc, selenium, zeatin and beta-carotene.

Produces a healthy oil - Although moringa is mostly celebrated for its leaves, its seeds also have a worthwhile purpose: the pods contain almost 40 percent of an edible, non-drying oil called "ben oil," which is comparable to olive oil in nutritional and antioxidant value. Ben oil is odorless, sweet-tasting, clear and - most importantly - lasts indefinitely. In fact, moringa leaf powder is also immune from spoiling, making both the tree's oil and leaves excellent survival foods.

Nourishes the skin - Due to their trace mineral content, dried and powdered moringa leaves are great for nourishing the skin. Indeed, more and more cosmetic companies are starting to include moringa extracts in their products for this reason. Moringa creams and lotions can be applied topically on the desired areas, thus allowing the nutrients to soak into, and rejuvenate, the skin.

Regularly consuming moringa leaves has also been linked to lower blood pressure, improved digestion and mood, immune-boosting effects and, thanks to their high fiber levels and low fat and calorie levels, weight loss.

 Check it out ^  I have a tree in my front yard, so I harvest it and then dry it out and crush it.  Drying it out concentrates its potency.  You can also use the flowers, tree bark and even root!
