Tomato Tart

This is one of my mothers favourites to make for a quick and fuss free lunch with a salad.  It’s a recipe inspired by Marita van der Vyver’s book “summer in Provence”. I love easy fuss free recipes like these and the best is that you can play around with the ingredients.  It’s like a pizza, just easier.

Pizza Tart

What you need:
A roll of puff pastry
Basil pesto – a good half a cup at least
Half a cup of parmesan/gruyere {and a few shavings for serving}
Sliced ripe tomatoes or cherry tomatoes
Thinly sliced mozzarella – about 12 slices {you can use more or less depending on how much you like cheese}
Fresh basil leaves

Roll out the puff pastry, and just fold up to make an edge around the outside of the pizza.  You can also make it in a tart dish, it does look a little more rounded off.

Spread with the pesto.

Sprinkle with the parmesan.

Place the tomatoes on the tart in an ordered way to make it look pretty.

Then pack the mozzarella on the top, this is optional.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for 20min

Serve with a few parmesan shavings and basil leaves, and a big fresh garden salad on the side.
