Pillsbury Pie Crust

Ingredients

  • 1 crust from 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Pie Crusts (2 Count), softened as directed on package
  • 1/4 lb. hard salami, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (8-oz.) container light roasted garlic cream cheese spread
  • 4 oz. (1 cup) shredded Asiago cheese
  • 2 oz. (1/2 cup) shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 2 oz. (1/2 cup) crumbled feta cheese with sun-dried tomatoes and basil
  • 2 medium Italian plum tomatoes, very thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • Coarse ground black pepper, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Place pie crust in 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom as directed on package for one-crust filled pie. Bake for 7 minutes. Remove partially baked crust from oven; sprinkle salami evenly over bottom of crust.
  • 2
    Beat eggs and cream cheese in medium bowl. Add remaining cheeses; mix well. Pour over salami. Arrange tomato slices around edge, overlapping slightly.
  • 3
    Bake for 28 to 38 minutes or until center is golden brown. Do not underbake. Let stand 5 minutes. Sprinkle with oregano and pepper. Cut into wedges.

  • Fitting a pastry crust into a dish and baking it without a filling is called blind-baking. Crust for pies and tarts with fillings that don’t require baking are blind-baked. Crusts are also blind-baked to set them so they don’t shrink when baked with their filling. In this recipe, blind-baking ensures the wedges have a nice crisp crust, despite their soft filling.
  • Pepperoni can be used in place of the hard salami.
  • Serve this rich appetizer tart with cold beer or white wine.
