Debeard portabella mushroom
Using a mandolin or a vegetable peeler slice the zucchini, squash, eggplant, and carrots into long, thin slices. You could also use a very sharp knife, just make sure your slices are a consistent thickness.
Thinly slice portabella mushrooms using a very sharp knife.
Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
Grease a 9" tart pan or pie dish.
Roll-out very cold refrigerated dough on a lightly floured surface until it is about 10 inches.
Place the dough into the greased tin or pie pan and lightly press to mold. trim any excess crust.
Place the tart pan with the dough into the refrigerator and chill for at least 15 minutes - do not remove until ready cook.
When ready to cook the pie crust, line dough with parchment paper and weight the pie crust with pie weight or dried beans.
Bake uncovered 15 minutes until the edges are just barely golden. ***Oven temperatures vary and using convection bake will cook the crust more quickly, so keep an eye on the crust so it doesn't get overdone.
Let crust rest in the tart pan or pie dish for about 15 minutes.
Spread pesto on the bottom of the crust, top with sundried tomatoes, and sprinkle with Asiago cheese and parmesan cheese.
Using a pastry brush, brush vegetables with olive oil and sprinkle each slice with a little cheese. Reserve a little bit of cheese to top the tart.
To begin assembly, take one slice of veggie and roll into a tight circle and place in the middle of the tart crust.
Continue by wrapping the vegetable slices around the middle, making sure to alternate veggies, until the tart pan is filled.
Tuck goat cheese in randomly between slices.
Brush top of the tart with a little olive oil.
Top with fresh ground pepper and sea salt to taste and the reserved cheese.
Bake at 350 °F for 45 to 50 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked but tender-crisp.
Sprinkle with fresh chopped herbs.
Let tart cool, covered for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Top with shaved Italian cheese, if you like.
