If you are one of those who doesn’t like to experiment with tastes and want the simplest taste possible, I recommend to exclude all ingredients you find too salty, or too spicy. You can use some other kind of cheese as well, and you must certainly be aware of nutritional value for each ingredient. Also, you can exclude ketchup and put a tomato puree instead. Have a nice meal!
