SERVES 4 Preparation 20 min Cooking 20 min
1 sheet readymade puff
15-20 ml (3-4 t) green pesto (store bought or see recipe below)
8-10 thin mozzarella cheese
slices 4 Roma tomatoes, sliced salt and pepper
1-2 chorizo sausages, thinly
sliced a few black olives fresh basil leaves
Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
1 Roll out the pastry slightly thinner. Score a line 1 cm from the edge all the way around, being careful not to cut all the way through. Prick the pastry inside the lines.
2 Spread the pesto over the pastry and top with the cheese and tomato slices. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle the sausage slices and olives on top.
3 Bake in the oven until the pastry is cooked and the cheese has melted, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle the basil on top.
Over the coals Put the pie in a folding braai grid and cook over fairly hot coals until the crust is cooked, about 15-20 minutes, checking every few minutes. Pack a few coals on a sheet of aluminium foil and place on the grid to char the top.
