Method

  1. Carefully wash the prickly lettuce, cut it and put it on to stew over high heat in a pan, so that the vegetable completely looses its liquid content.
  2. In another pan, warm a little oil together with the garlic and the hot pepper.
  3. As soon as the garlic starts to brown, add the olives, the raisins (previously soaked in water), the pine nuts and finally the prickly lettuce. Allow to absorb the flavour for a few minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200 °C, line a baking tray with baking paper, spread out the pastry on it and cover it with the lettuce-olives-raisins-pine nuts mix, taking care to take out the garlic.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool before serving.

Dish history

We called it 'pizza', but actually this dish is more similar to what French people call a 'quiche'.. but well, the recipe is Italian, so we allow ourselves to misuse the word this once! Try out this original and incredibly delicious dish, serve it to your friends and family or take it with you if you are going on an outing somewhere - just put it in a Tupperware container and you're good to go!
