Lisa take_me_to_the_kitchen

This dish is perfect for brunch! It comes together in just a few minutes with only 6 ingredients!


1 sheet puff pastry

3 eggs for filling + 1 egg for finishing crust

15 oz. ricotta

1 cup cubed or shredded mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

dash of nutmeg

1 heirloom tomato sliced (totally optional)


  • Lay tomato slices on paper towels to drain excess juices.

  • Roll puff pastry to about 11x14.

  • Lay pastry in a buttered baking dish (doesn’t need to fit the dish perfectly).

  • Place dish in the fridge for 10-15 mins.

  • Beat 3 eggs (save the 4th egg), add ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, some salt and pepper, a dash of nutmeg, mix well.

  • Remove baking dish from the fridge and pour filling into the center, leaving plenty of dough on the edges to fold up and onto the filling.

  • Fold pastry up and onto filling to create sides and to keep the filling from coming out.

  • If using tomato, lay slices on top of filling.

  • Poke holes in the folded dough and brush with 1 beaten egg.

  • Bake 375F for 40 minutes or until crust is browned and crispy.

  • Let cool 10-15 mins.

Super easy and super delicious!
