  • Button mushrooms, sliced 1 cup
  • Short crust pastry dough (made with 2 cups refined flour and 1 cup butter)
  • Oil 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper powder to taste
  • Dried mixed herbs 1 tsp
  • Pizza sauce ½ cup
  • Dry flour a little to dust
  • Mozzarella cheese, grated as required


  • Preheat the oven to 180º C. Grease a baking pan and dust with a little dry flour.
  • Heat oil in a non-stick pan, add mushrooms, mix and saute for 2 minutes.
  • Add salt, black pepper powder, mixed herbs and pizza sauce, mix and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Get the short crust pastry dough from the refrigerator. Sprinkle a little dry flour on the worktop and gently roll out the dough as thinly as possible. Cut out 6-8 rectangles measuring 5 cm x 7 cm.
  • Keep different shaped cookie cutters in the center of 3-4 rectangles and cut out.
  • In the center of the remaining 3-4 rectangles keep a little of the mushroom mixture. Gently lift the 4 rectangles with their centers cut out over and place them over the rectangles with mushroom and gently press the edges to seal. Keep these in the prepared baking pan.
  • Sprinkle a little mozzarella cheese over the mushrooms. Keep the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • Bring the pan out, let the pastries cool down then pack them in tiffin boxes or place them on a serving platter and serve.
