Rustic Tomato Tart

Wonderful recipe using tomatoes. I made this last night and everyone wanted to know when I was going to make it again. It is crossed between a tart and pizza. My younger son really liked it because he is a vegetarian. But you don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy this. The red pepper flakes and seasonings really made this recipe pop.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This recipe is a very tasty way to enjoy the bounty of your garden. I haven’t met a tomato that I didn’t love... and this recipe really seals the deal!


3 Tbsp
mustard or mayonnaise (i used mustard)
4 large
tomatoes, sliced
1/2 tsp
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1/4 tsp
each of: basil, parsley, oragno. (combine together)
1/2 tsp
red pepper flakes or more if like it with a hot flavor.
2 c
mozzarella cheese, shredded
pillsbury pie crust for bottom

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using a tart pan insert your pillsbury dough in the bottom and around sides. (do not overlap). I usually brush egg white on the crust. Par bake the crust and let cool completely. Spread 3 tablespoons mustard or mayonnaise only on the bottom of crust. Slice tomatoes and cover the entire bottom of crust. (if you want to make extra layer you can). Scatter your garlic and salt on top of tomatoes and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle your dried herbs combined together on top and your pepper flakes evenly distributed. If you want more of a hot taste add more pepper flakes. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese on top and sprinkle parsley on top for color. Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees until bubbly. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving and slice wedges with a pizza cutter. Enjoy....delicious.

I see I never gave you feedback on this dish. It was delish, and I've made it twice once last year and once so far this year.
I'm not cooking a whole lot right now, because I'm packing some more since I'm moving to Arroyo Hondo, NM on the 14th of July.
Thanks so much for posting this one!

Betty, how easy is this and what a great picture. I wouldn't have thought of pie crust, thanks for that, I usually use one frozen bread dough and let it raise all day and use that on the bottom but with this I don't have to wait and I always have them on hand for a quick pie. Love the picture, makes you want to take a bite. There's never enough uses for so many tomatoes in our garden and I don't always want to make sauce and freeze it. Thanks
