- Oil a deep, small 14×20 cm baking dish with some olive oil. Round quiche tin might work too.
- Depending on the size of your dish cut the puff pastry sheet in about a third. The larger piece will serve as the “bottom pie crust” and the smaller piece as a lid. Line the baking dish with the larger piece. Make sure there are no holes or cracks otherwise the filling will leak through them.1 gluten free puff pastry sheet
- Evenly distribute the filling. Cover with the small pastry piece (lid).
- Carefully cut any pastry pieces that are weirdly sticking out, then gently fold the overhanging edges of the bottom crust over the lid and press together.
- Cut the lid of the pie, like if you were cutting the pie into quarters, to create an opening. Don’t cut all the way through.
- Oil the top and bake on 160C (fan) for 50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
