    3. For the filling heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the bacon and leek until soft. Let cool.
    4. Roll out the dough to fit a 28cm tart tin (if your tart tin is smaller, it's OK too, the pastry base will be a bit thicker and bake longer).
    5. Scatter the beetroot on top and the leek bacon mixture on top. In a bowl whisk milk, eggs and Parmesan till well combined and slowly pour it on top. :
    6. Bake in the preheated oven till set and golden, 25 to 35 minutes.

    Roll out the pastry between two layers of cling wrap prevents it from sticking.
