Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F)
Add all ingredients for the crust into a bowl and stir with a spoon until the mixture resembles wet sand.
Pour the mixture into a standard pie plate and distribute evenly over the base and sides, pressing with your fingers to pack it down. Cover with a sheet of parchment paper and distribute some dried beans or rice on top. Bake for approx. 12 minutes, then remove parchment paper with the dried beans/rice and cook for another 5 minutes.Remove the crust from the oven and allow it to cool completely.

For the ganache:
Break the chocolate into small pieces and set aside.
In a non-stick saucepan bring the cream and sugar to a boil, remove from heat, add the chocolate pieces and mix with a whisk until smooth. Let the ganache cool for about 10 minutes, then whisk in Zucchi Organic extra virgin olive oil.

Assemble the tart:
Pour the ganache into the crust and distribute evenly. Place in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours. Garnish with orange zest before serving.

Useful tips: the crust can be prepared a day in advance; you can replace the hazelnut flour with almond flour.
