Our answer

NIgella's Pizza Rustica (from HOW TO BE A DOMESTIC GODDESS) is not the flat type of pizza, but a pie filled with meats and cheese. The Italian word "pizza" actually means "pie".

The pastry can be made vegan by replacing the butter with a plant-based alternative and binding the pastry with just water. But it is difficult to fully adjust the filling. Instead we would suggest trying Nigella's Courgette And Chick Pea Filo Pie. This recipe was inspired by the Pizza Rustica but uses filo pastry, which is usually vegan. You can replace the butter used for brushing on the filo with a plant-based alternative and the filling for this pie is completely vegan.
