Savory Tomato Tart
is a savory-style tart, made with tomatoes and mozzerella. Serve as a lunch, appetizer, or even dinner. Mozzerella cheese was used here but use any semi-soft cheese such as fontina or even Swiss if you like.
Line the tart mold with the pie crust, and press in the sides. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the bottom of the tart pan. Evenly lay the sliced tomatoes over the top. Sprinkle with kosher salt and twist a few turns of fresh ground pepper over the top. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until the crust is browned, and the tomatoes are lightly browned, about 45 minutes (check after 35, depending on the thickness of the tart, it can bake up to an hour). Remove from oven and let stand for about 30 minutes or more. Lightly brush a little olive oil over the top before serving. This tart is fine made the day before.
- Pie crust, enough to line a 8" x 11" square tart mold
- About 6 medium tomatoes, sliced (I used half yellow and half red tomatoes)
- About 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzerella cheese
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling, optional
