Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a cold surface, sprayed with non-stick spray, and roll out thinly. Line a tart pan, sprayed with non-stick spray, with the dough and trim and crimp the edges. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes, then bake in an oven preheated to 160 ºC for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
