Make the perfect pastry at home with this simple and delicious recipe.
Place the flour, salt and butter in a medium bowl and rub together, using your fingertips, until just combined.
Add the water and mix until just combined. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until just combined.
Roll the dough into a rough 20cm x 30cm rectangle. Fold in the short edges to meet at the centre of the rectangle.
Fold the pastry in half. Place on a tray, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Repeat the rolling, folding and chilling 4 more times. Roll the pastry out to the desired thickness before using. Makes 1 sheet

Bake rectangles of the pastry, brushed with lightly beaten egg, in a hot oven (200°C/400°F) until golden and crisp. Allow to cool and top with goat’s curd, cherry tomatoes, fresh herbs, finely grated parmesan, cracked pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.
Rub the flour mixture until it’s only just combined – you’ll still be able to see pieces of butter throughout.
