Bacon and Leek Tart with Ricotta Custard

Bacon and Leek Tart with Ricotta Custard

This tart has a ton of flavor and makes good use of all the leeks growing in my garden. :) Be careful when adding water to the crust that you don't add too much. The dough should be a bit crumbly. Also, next time I will put this in a sheet pan and probably 1.5 the crust and 1.5-2 x the filling and bacon topping.
