Phase 1

To prepare the summer savory pie, roll out the first disc of puff pastry in a round pan, about 20 cm in diameter. Cut the scamorza cheese into slices and arrange them on the dough, placing the slices slightly overlapping, until they completely cover the bottom.

Phase 2

Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, season with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and spread them over the smoked cheese. Also add the anchovy fillets, well drained from the oil and chopped, and the basil leaves.

Phase 3

Place the second disc of pastry on the filling and seal the edges so that they do not open during cooking. Make cuts on the surface to facilitate the escape of moisture from the filling during cooking, sprinkle with a drizzle of oil, sprinkle the surface with oregano and transfer to a preheated oven at 200 ° C. Bake the cake for 25-30 minutes, until it has browned.

Phase 4

Remove the summer savory pie and serve it warm or cold.
