The olive oil gives a nice color and softness to the pie crust, and a nice sunny taste !


  • For the olive oil pie crust:
  • 200g of flour
  • 4 tbsp (60ml) of Aix-en-Provence PDO olive oil – traditional taste
  • 1 small egg
  • 1 big pinch of salt
  • 1 big pinch of Provence herbs
  • 2 or 3 tbsp of cold water (if necesseray)
  • For the pesto :
  • 1 tsp of caper
  • 10 black olives (of Nyons, Nice or Vallée des Baux-de-Provence PDO for example)
  • 2 anchovy fillets (in oil)
  • 1 pinch of Espelette chili
  • 5 dried tomatoes
  • 10 leaves of basil
  • 1,5 tbsp of Aix-en-Provence PDO – traditional taste
  • 400g of cherry tomatoes
  • Begin by preparing the olive oil pie crust:
    Mix together the flour, salt and Provence herbs. Create a well and pour the olive oil.
    Mix and add the egg, mix quickly by adding some water if need be (to get a ball of dough).
  • Put in cling film and keep it in the fridge for 30min.
  • During this time, prepare the pesto by mixing all the ingredients until you get a homogeneous paste. Mix the half of the pesto to the cherry tomatoes, and stir well to coat it.
  • Spread the olive oil pie crust over a floured space on a 2-3mm thickness and top the pie dish.
  • Spread the pesto over the bottom of the pie and place the cherry tomatoes on it.
