I made this up completely but my boyfriend loves it. He requests it every time I cook! Serve with a light salad and vinaigrette.

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt and basil leaves. Mix in the butter, olive oil and water until it becomes a smooth dough. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter an 8 inch pie plate. Press the dough into the bottom and up the sides of the dish until it is about 1/4 inch or 1/2 centimeter thick. Bake for about 8 minutes in the preheated oven, until just starting to brown.

  • Make a layer of mushrooms and onion in the bottom of the pie crust. Top with a layer of tomatoes, olives and anchovies. Dot with goat cheese.

  • Return to the preheated oven, and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Variation

Use caramelized onion: Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the onion using medium heat. Do not brown the onion. Cook for 5 minutes or until onion is softened. Add 2 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar and 1 teaspoon of sugar and cook for another 3 minutes.

great recipe!! i changed it a bit by substituting lamb stew meat for the anchovies. i floured and panfried the meat before adding it to the pie shell. i also sauteed the onions and mushrooms first to soften them. my fiancee loves it! Read More

I used a ready-made pie shell as I'm too lazy to make my own. This turned out better than I expected but still not mind-blowing. I really liked the anchovy/goat cheese combination but if I were to make it again I would definitely omit the olives. Read More
