Instructions
 

For the Pie Crust (makes 2 pie crusts)
  • In the bowl of a food processor, pulse together flour and salt.
  • Add butter and mix until it resembles a coarse meal.
  • With the machine running, slowly add water and process until a dough comes together.
  • Add more water if dough seems too dry.
  • Divide the dough into two equal size balls and flatten into disks.
  • Wrap each disk in plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour before rolling out.
  • Roll one of the pie crusts out on a floured surface and then place in a greased pie pan covered with parchment paper.
  • Refrigerate the other disk of dough, or freeze it.
For the Filling
  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • Layer the bottom of the tart with tomatoes and green peppers.
  • Drizzle with olive oil.
  • Season with salt and pepper; don't use too much salt because feta cheese is salty.
  • Sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese across the top.
  • Put it in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 375 and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes before cutting.
