What is a tart?

A tart is a baked dish consisting of a filling over a pastry base with an open top not covered with pastry.

This Tomato Tart is a classic summertime dish using fresh tomatoes. It’s reminiscent of Tomato Pie. if you’re familiar with that Southern favorite.

The recipe is incredibly flavorful and much easier to make than it looks. Doesn’t it look impressive? That’s why I like to make it when I’m entertaining.

I prefer Gouda cheese for this recipe. Gouda is a mild, yellow cheese with a caramelly, nutty and buttery flavor. It’s a good cheese for melting and pairs wonderfully with tomatoes.

Finally, I highly recommend you serve this with fresh basil. Fresh basil is I N C R E D I B L E and pairs with tomatoes perfectly!

Tomato Cheese Tart Tips

  1. I recommend using a plum, Roma, or heirloom tomato. As well, you don’t want to use beefsteak tomatoes.
  2. You can use either cream cheese or ricotta cheese. Typically, I use cream cheese.
  3. Additionally, you can make the tart crust. I have the recipe listed below. However, you can also use a purchased pie crust. If you’re making this in a tart pan, get a refrigerated roll-out pie crust.
  4. Also, you can use filo dough (Also known as phyllo dough) or puff pastry as the crust.

    Absolutely delicious and decadent! I didn’t change anything this time because I like to try recipes as as, first. Next time I might add a bit of garlic and definitely some basil. So good as is, though!
