Fresh Tomato Tart via lifeingrace

NOTHING says summer like fresh tomatoes.  Can I get an amen?  And if it’s not summer where you are, please consider moving to my good state.  We’d love to have you!   Fresh tomatoes may be my favorite thing in all the world.  I’ve got about 7 different varieties in my garden as we speak and if that weren’t enough, I live in the tomato capitol of the South.  We drove to a tomato farm on the other side of the lake last week after church and have been in hog heaven all week.  I’ve had tomatoes in every possible combination.  I made this fresh tomato tart while our company was here last week and it was everything I ever dreamed of.

I make it several times every summer when the tomatoes are fresh and I usually serve it with grilled kabobs.  It’s THE perfect summer supper!  Ruth is a vegetarian so this was an easy meal to adjust since we could make her kabobs with shrimp and vegetables and the tart is just layered tomatoes over cheese and basil.  This is my 2nd favorite way to have tomatoes in the summer.  My favorite?  Fresh tomato sandwich.  PLEASE tell me you’ve tried the summer tomato sandwich! No? Well, start here with the tomato tart and I’ll ease you into the sandwich by late summer!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 store-bought or homemade dough for tart shell
  • 6-8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (I often use fresh and slice it into disks)
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus extra for sprinkling on top
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, plus extra for garnish
  • 4 to 6 fresh tomatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 red onion sliced thin for layering
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Basil, chopped for garnish

What you’ll do:

  •  Bake the crust in a preheated oven (400 degrees) for 10-15 minutes before adding any ingredients
  • Add the cheese to the bottom of the baked crust
  • Add chopped basil
  • Layer tomatoes and onions (usually 3 layers deep) adding salt and pepper to each layer
  • Drizzle tomatoes with olive oil and salt and pepper the top
  • Bake at 400 for another 25 minutes or so
  • Garnish with chopped basil

  2. I’ve been looking for a good tomatoe tart recipe for years!! Yes, years. We had a great tart at our wedding in 2001 and I’ve been trying to replicate it ever since. It’s true, I can’t make this stuff up. Can’t wait to try yours!

  4. I LOVE tomatoes! I must grow at least some of my own every summer. Can’t live without them! However, we live in MN now so the growing season is shorter, and I can’t grow as many varieties as I would like. My favorite variety, out of the ones I have tried growing, is Mr. Stripey. They are large tomatoes and so flavorful – they make a fabulous tomato sandwich (one of my favorites too). MMMMMM! I am going to have to try this tart. It looks and sounds delicious.

  5. You are SO lucky. My tomato plants just went into the ground on Tuesday. Unfortunately in these here parts, we can’t put anything in the ground before May 24th due to the possibility of frost. Nonetheless, I will be tucking this recipe away for August 15th….. which is about the earliest we reap anything. Is there anything better in the world to eat than a warm, vine-picked tomato? I think not!

  6. My heavens – that sounds delicious! I am a tomato farmer & my current fave is Black Krim. The tomato tart – tomorrow for supper. But tonato sandwich… no can do because I have a life long hatred of mayo!

  8. 10 tips to coaching youth sportsOn Friday, October 6, 2006, baseball lost a great ambassador, personality, and storyteller when John “Buck” O’Neil passed away a few weeks short of his 95th birthday. O’Neil had been admitted to the hospital on September 16th with extreme fatigue. O’Neil’s was a life in baseball, and his love for the game is something that those that knew him and baseball fans everywhere will always remember. Lastly, poor washing practices can lead to odours from these machines. D

  9. May I simply just say what a comfort to find someone that genuinely knows what they’re discussing
    online. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make
    it important. More people really need to look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I can’t believe you aren’t more popular because you most
    certainly have the gift.

  10. We don’t have any yet, but only because I was late in the garden this year. Can hardly wait to try this tart…sounds like perfection on a plate.

    Nobody can make me click over to a pie or tart recipe like you can, even though I can’t handle carbs! Can’t wait to try this.

  13. The company also claims to have awarded job opportunities to various people and made it possible for them

    to hear your voice on the phone. In comparison to video marketing, marketing through audios can be a supple and efficient form of marketing by most of internet experts.
