How to Cook Cheesy Leek Puff Pastry Pie

  1. Line an 8 x 4 x 1.5 inches cake pan with puff pastry sheet and trim the edges. Cover with a sheet of parchment paper and fill with dried beans. Bake for 25 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.

  6. Pour the batter over them and top with the remaining mozzarella. Bake for 30 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.
