Tomato Tart

Looking for a recipe that’s fresh, simple and perfect for a light lunch or a party snack?  Try this Tomato Tart!
Simple Tomato Tart RecipeWalmart asked me to share a tomato recipe with you again this year.  In the past for Walmart I’ve shared my favorite salsa recipe:  Wonderful Salsa.  This time I wanted to try something new–and this Tomato Tart is what I wound up creating  It’s a perfect way to use fresh tasty tomatoes, either from your own garden or from the Walmart produce section.  I also love that it’s made from simple, whole ingredients.  Using Great Value premade pie crust is so convenient and makes this recipe super fast–but if you wanted to you could always use your favorite homemade pie crust recipe.

Tomato Tart Recipe

The recipe is really simple–just place your pie crust on a baking sheet (I like my baking stone (similar to this one) and my Mainstays insulated cookie sheet) and layer with mozzarella and lovely ripe tomatoes.  I chose to use the fresh mozzarella from the deli section of my Walmart, but the shredded kind would work as well–it just wouldn’t be as pretty!

Layering the Tomato Tart

After you’ve layered your tomatoes and mozzarella, just fold up the edges of your pie crust to make a “rustic tart”.  Shred on some good Parmesan cheese, drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil, add a few strips of fresh basil and a couple of shakes of salt and pepper.

Bake in a 350 oven for about 20 minutes, then turn up to 425 for another 5 or so to get a bit of brown on the crust and the cheese.  It’s best to let the tart cool quiet well before trying to cut and serve–or else everything will just melt and goop off.  Ask me how I know. . .

This tart would be a hit at your next party (I served mine at an outdoor bash I held for some of the gals) or you could serve it with one of the organic Marketside mixed greens salads for a perfect light lunch.
