The key to a successful galette is a filling that doesn't become runny while baking. Salting the squash helps remove excess water so you don't end up with a soggy crust.

  • Meanwhile, on a large piece of lightly floured parchment paper, roll pie dough to a 12-inch circle. Transfer parchment and dough to a large baking sheet; set aside.

  • For ricotta filling, in a medium bowl whisk together ricotta, Parmesan, mozzarella, garlic, 1 tsp. of the olive oil, lemon peel, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Using a spatula, spread over dough, leaving a 1 1/2 inch border. Top with squash rounds. Drizzle with remaining olive oil. Gently fold over pastry edge, pleating as necessary.

  • In a small bowl whisk egg yolk and 1 tsp. water. Lightly brush pastry edges with egg mixture. Transfer galette to oven. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Sprinkle with dill weed, if desired. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Received multiple requests for this recipe, everyone loved it. Made my own pie crust and used a mandolin for the zucchini. Forgot the dill, even though I bought it just for this recipe!

Dairy alternatives friendly! My husband has a dairy allergy but we had substitutes for the ricotta, Parmesan and mozzarella on hand so we gave it a whirl. This galette turned out fabulously! Just the right amount of savory and lemony freshness. We will definitely be adding this recipe to our rotation

Great vegetarian option. Very pretty to bring to a party. I like using the variegated green/yellow squash when I can find them.

I meant this to be a 4. Got rave reviews when I made it. You MUST use the lemon. That is what gives it the great taste.
