Fresh Strawberry Crostata Recipe @

This  Fresh Strawberry Crostata is a free form tart recipe featuring fresh strawberries wrapped in buttery pie crust.

It has been  2 years since I  baked  Pumpkin Galette.  I have recently managed to purchase fresh strawberries and now it is a time to bake a crostata again. These strawberries are vibrant and absolutely gorgeous,  they stay firm when ripe.  If you need tips of making a perfect crust,  kindly check my Apple Crostata  post.

This Fresh Strawberry Crostata requires a buttery crust and a filling.   Prepare the crust first before proceeding to make the filling.

Wash the strawberries and drain well. the strawberry is like a sponge that absorbs water  so do not let it soak in water.  If the strawberries are big, slice into 3 or 4 lengthwise.

Made mine into 2 x 6.5 in circles instead of one  big one,   The size and shape are  entirely up to you, whether you choose a square, round or rectangle.

Fresh Strawberry Crostata Recipe @

Yield  :    2 x 6.5  in crostata


1.5 cup  all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2  cup  butter cut into cubes
1/4 tsp salt
4-5  tablespoons ice water

250 g strawberry hulled and halved
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoon all purpose flour


Place  flour, sugar  and salt in a mixing bowl.

Using your fingertips,  quickly rub in the butter until  the mixture  resembles bread crumbs.

Gradually add a tablespoon of ice water at a time, use your fingers to press the crumbs firmly together to form a ball of dough.

Wrap the dough in plastic,  chill for 30 minutes-1 hour.

For filling, combine sliced strawberries, flour and sugar.

Roll out the pastry on floured  board into 12 in circle or divide into half to make 2 x 6.5 in circle.  Set them on baking sheet. Heat the oven @ 190 C.

Mound the filling in center of the dough leaving 2 in border around the edges.

Fold edges of  dough over apple filling, crimp edge slightly. .

Bake until crust  turns golden brown for 30-35 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
