Ingredients For Olive Oil Pastry:
  • 2 cups or 250 g all purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil, or a light tasting one of your choice
  • ⅓ cup cold water, plus extra if needed
  • pinch salt
  • ½ tsp sugar
Filling and Topping Ingredients:
  • whole milk or egg wash for brushing
  • Nectarines cut into thin wedges, I used 5 medium
  • 100 gm goat cheese, don't use low-fat
  • arugula leaves
  • Amelia's Spicy Spicing Pecans
Olive Oil Pastry Instructions:
  1. Mix the flour,salt and sugar until well combined. Make a well in center and add olive oil and water. Mix and knead into a smooth dough.
  2. Use your hands to gather the dough into a ball. Wrap with plastic wrap or place inside a plastic bag. Leave to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Putting It All Together:
  1. After the 30 minutes of resting, preheat the oven to 375F or 190C, roll out dough to a large circle and to your desired thickness. Crumble and spread goat cheese around center, but leave about 1 inch or 2.5 cm of outer dough to be folded over later. Next arrange the nectarines on top of goat cheese, use as many as you like. Fold the extra outer dough over the toppings, like you see in the finished images. Brush the dough with a little whole milk or egg wash. Bake in center of oven for 20-25 minutes or until the dough feels crispy and is golden brown.
  2. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, and right before serving top with fresh arugula leaves and the spicy pecans.
