  2. Put the flour and butter in a dish, then put this dish in the freezer for 10 minutes.

  5. Add the sugar and pulse to combine (should be soft and crumbly).
  6. Bind with the yolk, water and salt mixture - when it looks as if it's on the verge of coming together, tip the pastry our and work together with your hands.

  13. Putting it all together:
  14. Roll out the larger disc of pastry between plastic wrap so it's large enough to cover the bottom and sides of the pan, leaving a few inches overhang.
  15. Sprinkle the bottom of the now pastry lined pan with bread crumbs, and then fill with the filling.
  16. Roll out the smaler disc between plastic wrap to make the lid.
  17. Place the lid on top of the filled pie, turn over the edges of the overhand to form a border and press it down with a fork.
  18. Combine all of the glaze ingredients in a small bowl, and brush over the entire pie.
  19. Poke fork holes in the top to allow the steam to escape.
  20. Place the pizza on the baking sheet in the preheated oven.
  21. After 10 minutes of cooking, turn the oven down to 350F and continue to cook for another 45 minutes.
