    Sprinkle 2 tablespoons flour on work surface; unroll second crust on surface. Sprinkle cheese and thyme evenly over crust, pressing into crust with hands, then with rolling pin so most of the cheese gets pressed into the dough.

Expert Tips

If cheese begins to stick to the rolling pin, dust the pin lightly with flour.

During the last 15 to 20 minutes of baking, the edges of the crust can be covered with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning, if necessary.

If you don’t have fresh thyme, substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons of dried thyme leaves.
