Place pastry over roaster and gently push down into the edges of the roaster.

Cut off any excess pastry which drapes over the top.

Using a fork, score the sides of the pastry and prick the base.

Place in the fridge for 30 mins.

Line the pastry with baking parchment and fill with baking beans.

Bake for 20mins at 170C.

Remove the baking beans and paper and return the roaster to the oven for 5-10mins 180C.
