Suppose that one day you get bored of pizza!You may think I am completely nuts… but it could happen...Okay, I admit that I love pizza too! But let's assume that it comes the time that you don't want to eat another piece of pizza...you just had fed up of eating pizza with your friends watching the football game and you just want to eat something different while keeping the same style!If you don’t think that my hypothesis is possible, I would remind you that there are more extreme scenarios than mine that you may believe in, such as that aliens will attack earth, parallel universes exist, earth will collide with a giant comet or strange creatures live in the core of earth... Oh, I'm such a chatterbox...Whatever...I simply assume that you don't want to eat pizza, I don't care about the reason....

Let's cook a delicious vegetable tart!!! 



1 ½  cups all-purpose flour plus more
1/2 teaspoon sugar
9 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter
1 egg
2 tablespoons cold water
A pinch of oregano
½ tablespoon salt


3 red peppers
2 tablespoons olive oil
Freshly ground pepper
8 cherry tomatoes
2 eggs
8 mushrooms
2 spring onions
6-8 black olives
2 tablespoons fresh basil
4 sundried tomatoes
3 tablespoons milk
½ cup Greek yogurt 
½ cup cream cheese (I used Katiki, a Greek soft goat cheese)
200 gr. Feta cheese in small pieces
100 gr.  grated cheese (whatever you will use for pizza)


Preheat oven to 180°C. Pour the flour, the salt, the oregano and the sugar in a big bowl.  Beat the egg slightly and then add it at the flour mixture. Add the butter and the water and mix it well. Put the bowl in the fridge for about an hour so as to chill. 
Grease a 26 cm. diameter heat resistant pie dish Use a rolling pin to roll out pastry on a lightly floured surface then transfer it to pie dish; press onto bottom and up sides of dish. Trim dough if any dough protruding, leaving 2 fingers overhang.  Line dough with baking paper; fill with dried beans or rice to avoid tart for inflating. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove paper and beans. Bake for a further 10 minutes. Set aside to cool until you prepare the filling.
Cut the peppers, the mushrooms, the spring onions, the cherry and sun dried tomatoes into small pieces. Remove the stones from the black olives and slice them. Beat slightly the rest ingredients together and then add the vegetables and mix well. Put the filling on the pastry and bake for 15 minutes or until the filling seems baked. Top with basil to add scent. 

Good luck!!!
