Pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Crust: In a bowl, combine flour, cheese, salt, cayenne pepper, and dry mustard together. With your fingertips, rub in the butter.
Lightly grease a 9-inch round pie shell. Press filling onto the bottom.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic with veggies until soft, about 5 to 7 minutes.
