Chorizo, Red Pepper, and Potato Galette with Arugula

The beauty of galettes is their no-fuss, free-form shape. Any Spanish-style sheep's-milk cheese works well here.

Sunset APRIL 2011

  • Yield: Serves 4 to 6
  • Total: 45 Minutes


  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie dough for a 9-in. pie shell*
  • 3 ounces Basque-style sheep's-milk cheese*, thinly sliced
  • 3 ounces Spanish-style chorizo, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, cooked and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers, thinly sliced and patted dry
  • 2 cups loosely packed baby arugula
  • 1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 425°. Lay out a sheet of parchment paper, unroll pie dough on top, and roll into a 13-in. round. Set on a rimless baking sheet.

2. Leaving a 2-in. border, scatter cheese, chorizo, potatoes, and peppers over dough.

3. Fold dough edges over filling, then bake until crust is golden and cheese is melted, 20 to 25 minutes.

4. Toss arugula with vinegar and oil in a small bowl until coated. Scatter over galette. Cut into wedges and serve immediately.

*We especially like Pillsbury pie dough. Look for Barinaga Ranch Baserri, a California farmstead cheese sold at specialty shops, or use manchego.
