Dough ingredients

  • 3 and 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 2 spoons of sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups butter, cut into pieces

Ingredients for the filling

  • 300 g of chard without stems
  • 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 100 g parmesan, coarsely grated
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • 2 teaspoons of finely grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar


  • Mix flour, sugar and salt. Add the butter and process the dough until the butter is incorporated.
  • Add 1/2 cup cold water and blend.
  • Put the dough on the work surface and knead it so that it comes together perfectly. Divide it in half.
  • Place one half on cling film.
  • Roll out the dough to a sheet 20 millimeters thick, then wrap it.
  • Do the same with the other half of the dough.
  • Place both sheets in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • Now get to the stuffing.
  • Put the water in a large pot and bring it to a boil. Add Swiss chard to it and cook this vegetable until it turns light green. If you can’t find Swiss chard, you can use spinach. Even the spinach pie is delicious.
  • Cook the Swiss chard for about 2 minutes, then use tongs to plunge it into cold water to stop the cooking. Allow the vegetables to cool, then finely chop them.
  • Heat the oil in a large pot. Fry the onion and mix it with the Swiss chard.
  • Beat 4 eggs in a large bowl. Add the ricotta, parmesan and Swiss chard to them. Mix everything. Add garlic, lemon zest, nutmeg, 2 teaspoons salt and pepper.
  • Take the dough out of the fridge, leave it at room temperature for about 5 minutes. Roll out one more sheet so that you can put it in the cake pan and that the dough still extends a little over the edges. Press the dough into the sides and bottom of the mold.
  • Beat one egg and brush the edges of the dough with it.
  • Then spread the filling evenly over the cake.
  • Take the second sheet of dough, place it over the filling, then curl the edges.
  • Brush the top of the Italian cake with egg, sprinkle it with sugar, wrap it in cling film and put it in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°C. Remove the cake from the freezer, remove the cling film, then bake it for about 65 to 75 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
