Savory pie with artichokes
Easy recipe, ideal for artichoke lovers
Here is a recipe with puff pastry suitable only for those who love artichokes viscerally: there are only a few ingredients so that the predominant flavour will be that of artichoke.
Ingredients: 2 rolls of puff pastry; 450 grams of mozzarella; 450 grams of artichokes; garlic; olive oil; chilli pepper; salt.
You can vary the quantities of artichokes and mozzarella: the important thing is that they are in proportion 1: 1
I bought some frozen artichoke hearts, but of course, you can buy them fresh and cook them as you usually do.
When they are ready, (without burning yourself!) cut the artichokes into small pieces.
Meanwhile, stir-fry slightly garlic, oil and chilli pepper. If you want to use black pepper instead of chilli, it's okay, you won't fry it, but you will add it directly in the pan, over the artichokes. I don't recommend the use of both together.
Stir-fry the artichokes and add a bit of salt.
Roll out one of the disks of dough in the pan. Cut the mozzarella into cubes, then add it together with the artichokes.
Cover the cake with the second disc of dough. Close the edges as you can see in the photo and brush a little olive oil over them. Some use the egg instead of oil, but in my opinion, it is too heavy.
For baking, follow the instructions for the puff pastry. I cooked 30 minutes at 200 ° centigrade.
The pie is also good cold... but warm, with the mozzarella still stringy, it is much better.
