How to Make Torta Rustica

For Filling

  1. Take a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add ricotta cheese, romano cheese, gruyere cheese, provolone cheese, mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese in the bowl. Mix these well into a fine paste.
  3. Now add ham and salami into the bowl and mix them with the cheese completely.
  4. Once properly mixed, add 4 eggs into the bowl and again mix everything.
  5. Next sprinkle the mixture with black pepper powder and salt and again mix well.
  6. When you are done, set it aside until it is needed for assembling.

For Crust

  1. Take a large mixing bowl.
  2. Pour flour into it.
  3. Add sugar, clarified butter, 2 eggs and white wine into the bowl.
  4. Knead the mixture until it turns into dough.
  5. Divide the dough into two pieces. One should be larger to cover the bottom while another should be smaller for covering the top.
  6. Cover both the pieces of the dough in a parchment paper and refrigerate it for a few minutes.
  7. After a few minutes, flatten out the bottom dough on a flat surface using dry flour so it doesn’t get too sticky.
  8. Do the same with the upper dough.

For Assembling

  1. Grease the baking pan with butter and stick parchment paper to the walls of the pan.
  2. Now spread the bottom dough inside the baking pan. Make sure it sticks to the bottom and the walls of the pan.
  3. Pour all the filling inside the pan.
  4. Cover it up with the upper dough.
  5. Brush the upper dough with egg yolk.
  6. Bake the torta rustica in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 50 minutes.
  7. Serve when it cools down!
