This pie crust have is interesting because 1/ it’s Mediterranean favors are incredible. It taste just like being in Southern France 2/ it’s very easy to roll out.
The pie crust may retract a little bit at the beginning of the rolling out process. But soon it becomes very easy to roll it out, even very thinly. And another great thing is that you can set it in your tin using your hands, without being afraid that the crust rips.
This recipe is perfect for your savory tarts, pies or quiches. I like to prepare Mediterranean vegetables tart (eggplants, peppers, and zucchinis), the French classical tomato tart, and even savory upside down Tatin tart with this olive oil and rosemary pie crust.
