In the filling ingredients, garlic is listed, but I see no mention of it in the instructions. Where is it actually supposed to go? I did try this recipe earlier, using minced garlic and putting it in with the toppings. It turned out quite nicely! Next time, I'll have my digital camera handy to submit a picture.
