Rustic Pie with Zucchini

Avatar of Anna Mariasolo-dolce
The rustic zucchini pie is a savory vegetable tart with a melted mozzarella filling. You can bring it to the table as a delicious appetizer, as a vegetarian main course, or as a single dish for lunch or picnic breaks.

Servings 4


  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 150 g 4 flat slices of Swiss cheese 5.3 oz
  • 2-3 medium zucchini
  • 200 g mozzarella cheese 7.05 oz

  • fry oil


  • Cut the zucchini into a lozenge shape or lengthwise and fry them.
  • Pepper and salt them.
  • Roll out the puff pastry on a baking sheet lined with baking paper  (8 inches = 20 cm))  so that there is enough pastry in order to fold them onto the pie like a border.
  • Arrange a layer of fried zucchini on the bottom of the puff pastry, on top of this layer lay some mozzarella slices and on top of the mozzarella lay down the 4 slices of Swiss cheese.
  • Cover with the remaining layer of zucchini and sprinkle with the shredded cheese blend.
  • Fold the edges and bake at 180°C (356°Ffor at least 40 minutes.
  • You can enjoy it hot or cold, for preference sake.
