Melted Cheese Pie
with Mortadella

45 mins


  • 3 sheets pane carasau, also known as carta musica (a thin, crisp Sardinian flatbread)
  • 70 g Mortadella
  • 500 g mozzarella cheese
  • 200 g crescenza cheese
  • 2 tbsp grated pecorino cheese
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • fleur de sel


Preheat the oven to 200°C. Heat 250 ml of water and add two tablespoons of olive oil, mixing them together well. Finely slice the mozzarella, dice the crescenza, and cut the Mortadella into strips. Use a round, preferably non-stick oven dish. Grease the base with a tablespoon of olive oil and cover it with two sheets of pane carasau. Pour over half of the water/oil mixture, then add the cheeses and the Mortadella prepared earlier. Cover with the last sheet of pane carasau and pour over the rest of the water/oil mixture. Top with a drizzle of oil, the grated pecorino and a pinch of fleur de sel. Bake in the centre of the oven for around 30 minutes, or until the pie is well cooked all the way through. Brown under the grill for 2-3 minutes if required.
