- Mix the mushrooms (and bell pepper) with drained corn, anchovies and spices (salt, black pepper, oregano).
- Preheat oven to 200 °C. Line baking tray/sheet with parchment paper.
- Prepare the sheets of pastry by cutting them to the desired size (make sure you leave some space for the edges) and place them on the baking tray.
- Fold in all the edges of each sheet to form a border of about 1 cm on each side, making sure the corners are secured by pinching them with a fork or pressing with the finger.
- Spread the cheese on each pastry inside the border and then add the mix from step 2.
- Top the pastry with toppings, such as: olives, capers.
- Bake them in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the pastry has a nice golden colour.
