I start with a large wooden spoon, then, when everything is lightly blended, I finish working the dough with my hands. Finally I separate it into two balls.

Using a rolling pin, roll out both dough’s into the shape of your baking dish. My dish is oval shaped, so the dough is going to be the same type of shape.

Place one of the flattened dough balls in the baking dish. Pierce the flattened dough several times with a fork. This helps the dough to rise when baking.

Sprinkle with the grated cheese - we’re almost done; isn’t this great?! :)

Cover everything with the other dough piece and knead pieces together at the edge. Poke some small holes through the top to let the heat escape while baking.

Bake for about 25-30 minutes until the filling becomes firm and consistent.
