  • 2 red peppers
  • 450g fresh plum tomatoes
  • 1 quantity shortcrust pastry (see 'Goes well with' below)
  • 225g vegetarian mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 12 pitted black olives, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh oregano
  • handful chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp milk, to glaze



    One of the most widely used ingredients, milk is often referred to as a 'complete' food…


  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Brush the slices of aubergine with the olive oil and place on a baking tray with the whole red peppers. Bake for 15-20 mins until the aubergine slices are golden brown and tender and the peppers are charred and blistered. Place the peppers in a plastic bag, seal and leave aside to cool.

  2. When the peppers are cool, cut in half and remove the blackened skin and seeds. Cut into thick strips. Halve the tomatoes, remove any seeds and juice, then pat dry on kitchen paper. Thinly slice.

  3. Roll out half the pastry on a lightly floured surface, then use to line a 20cm pie plate. Arrange half the aubergine slices in the pastry case and top with half the peppers. Season between each layer. Arrange half the mozzarella cheese on top, then cover with half the tomato slices.

  4. Sprinkle over half the black olives, oregano and basil. Repeat these layers, using the remaining ingredients.

  5. Brush the pastry border with water. Roll out remaining pastry and use to cover the pie, trimming the edges and pinching together to seal. Brush with the milk, place on a baking sheet and bake for 25 mins until crisp and golden.

What a splendid pie!

The filling was great, however 1 quantity of shortcrust pastry for this was not enough for me, it was enough only to line the pie plate.. I would say 2 quantities of shortcrust pastry.
