Tourte Milanese… Italian Pizza Style

Okay, as far as I know there is not an “Italian” style to a Tourte Milanese… it’s French. But, I thought (and this is where I usually get into trouble),why not make this into a yummy pizza dish. That’s what happens when I have too much to drink.

I usually make my own puff pastry; however, for this go around, I’m using store-bought… Forgive me, I’m only human.

I switched out some of the “traditional” ingredients for Italian, and came up with this yummy puff pastry, deep-dish pizza…

So, you ready… let’s get into the kitchen.
