    Knead dough into a ball and then flatten into a disk. Wrap very well in cling film and refrigerater for at least an hour.
     
    For the mushroom filling:
    Heat olive oil in a large frying pan.
    Fry the onion until golden brown and beginning to caramelize.  Add the garlic, thyme and rosemary. Cook until fragrant. Add the mushrooms and cook until golden brown. Season well.
    Remove mushrooms from the heat and turn outonto a chopping board to cool.
