Carasau Bread Pie

INTRODUCTION

Carasau bread is a versatile ingredient used in Sardinian cuisine. Thanks to its crunchy texture and its thin sheets, it has become the main ingredient in a gourmet recipe: Carasau bread pie.

The combination of a tasty tomato sauce and goat cheese slices create this delicious first course, which is perfect for a special occasion.

It’s easy to cook, and with a hint of Sardinian flavours it can be served as an original reinterpretation of the more traditional pie.

Grease a baking pan with oil, pour in a ladle of sauce and then place the carasau bread sheets to form a homogeneous layer.
