TWD: Pizza Rustica

This was a simple recipe. I had a lot of fun making it, but it wasn't as tasty as I thought it would be. 

You know those days when you wake up and head to the kitchen to find someone lovely making you breakfast? There's this awesome aroma that hits your nostrils and you say to yourself, "ahhh yes...the goodness is here." 
That is what the pie tastes like to me. The smell of breakfast. It has the sweetness and savory flavors you love in a big morning breakfast or a warm ham and cheese croissant. Everyone loves those flavors, but this pie literally has such a subtle taste of those flavors it makes sad. It also makes me want to eat more, just because I think I can get more out of it. But alas, I do not. 

If I every do make this again, I would definitely add bolder flavors, such as gorgonzola, sun dried tomatoes, or maybe just add more prosciutto to it. 
If I don't make it again, I know for sure I would make something else with the pie crust. It has a really good consistency for a fruit pie or maybe even mini custard tarts. Yuuuuum yum!

Check out Emily and Raelynn's blogs for the recipe. And if you would like to see how the rest of the group's pies turned out, head over to TWD blogroll. You can find other bakers there who might have altered the recipe a bit by adding creative fillings. 


  1. It looks beautiful, I agree the taste was not extraordinary.

  2. Beautiful presentation!

  3. It is beautiful! Your lattice browned so nicely. Mine was a bit pale.

  4. Very lovely!
    At least one this was easy to throw together.

  5. I made the recipe exactly as specified and when I was eating it, I was wishing for a bolder flavor. I like your idea of gorgonzola cheese. Now thinking about it, I once had a roasted pear, walnut and gorgonzola salad that was wonderful. I wonder how those flavors would taste with the ricotta and sweet crust. I bet it would be pretty good.
