Lombardy Tart

There are actually several different things referred to as “lombardy tart”, including a fruit and custard pie and a meat pie. This particular recipe is based on a tart from Libre per Cuoco. We experimented with some different “fresh cheese” options, including ricotta, but concluded that the mozzarella was the tastiest.
