Coat a baking tray with a little bit of olive oil and line the bottom and sides with the pastry. 

Use a fork to prick the pastry all over. Add all the cheese and mushrooms, and then sprinkle with smoked paprika.    

Place on the braai grid over hot coals, cover with foil and a few hot coals and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Check regularly until the cheese is bubbling and the pastry is golden brown.

Once the pie is cooked, remove it from the baking tray and add sea salt and pepper to taste. 

Garnish with fresh thyme and serve immediately.
