Tomatoes have a habit of turning from luscious to lousy super quickly. So, stop those tomatoes in their tracks by turning them into a tart. This quick and easy recipe uses just a few simple ingredients, but the outcome is totally impressive and oozing with flavor from head to-ma-toes!


  • 4 medium-sized tomatoes 
  • 2 tablespoons goats cheese or ricotta
  • 1 tablespoon pesto
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • Salt
  • Pepper 


  1. Slice the tomatoes into rounds that are ¼-inch thick. Place them on a tray and add salt. Leave for 30 minutes and allow the excess water to drain. 
  2. Lay out the puff pastry and lightly score an inch-thick border around the edge. Brush olive oil along the edge. 
  3. Spread a layer of cheese on the pastry and then add dollops of pesto. 
  4. Arrange the tomatoes on the dough and season with pepper and a little bit of salt. 
  5. Bake at 425F for 20-25 minutes, until the puff pastry is golden. Drizzle with olive oil and pesto before serving.
