Tomato Pesto TartFrom krumkake 4 years ago
- 1 sheet puff pastry dough, rolled or pressed to about 10 x 14 (or use phyllo dough, brushing each of 12 sheets with a bit of olive oil or melted butter, or use a pre-baked pizza crust, etc) shopping list
- 4 tablespoons prepared pesto shopping list
- 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs (we used finely crushed garlic croutons instead - very flavorful!) shopping list
- 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan Reggiano (you can play around with the cheese flavors) shopping list
- 1 medium red tomato, cut into 1/4" slices (we used 3 different colored small heirloom tomatoes – very pretty, and they were very sweet) shopping list
- 1 medium yellow tomato, cut into 1/4" slices shopping list
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper shopping list
- couple shakes of garlic salt or powder shopping list
- 5 to 6 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced (we forgot to add this when it came out of the oven – was excellent as is, but we'll try this next time) shopping list
How to make it
- Press puff pastry into bottom of small cookie sheet (10x14) that has been sprayed with oil.
- Spread pesto over top of crust.
- Sprinkle the bread crumbs or crushed croutons over the pesto.
- Sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese over the bread crumbs.
- Fold each side of the dough up about ½" to form a rim.
- Arrange tomato slices over cheese.
- Sprinkle tomatoes with pepper and garlic salt or powder.
- Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheese over tomatoes.
- Bake at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown and crispy.
- Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes then garnish with fresh basil before cutting and serving.
