Tomato tart


  • Cut the tomatoes into 2 cm thick slices and transfer them into a bowl
  • Sprinkle with the salt and set them aside for 30 minutes to release their juices.
  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan. 
  • Butter and flour a 22 cm tart pan and cover the bottom and the sides with the ready-made shortcrust pastry.
  • Prick the surface of the dough with a fork.
  • Cover the bottom of the tart with some plastic wrap or a sheet of parchment paper, placed in a crisscross manner.
  • Add legumes as pie weights, so that the tart crust doesn’t rise, and fold the edges of the plastic wrap inwards. Attention, if you do not fold the plastic wrap, the edges will melt due to the oven’s temperature, and it will stick on the dough.
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes along with the pie weights. 
  • Remove the tart pan from the oven, remove the plastic wrap with the pie weights, and bake for 10 more minutes. You cannot cook the legumes you used here. You can only use them again as pie weights.
  • Remove the tart crust from the oven, brush its whole surface with the egg wash, and bake it for 5 more minutes, until golden.
  • Remove the tart pan from the oven and let it cool for about 20 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven again to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan. 
  • Drain the tomatoes and pat them dry with kitchen paper. 
  • Spread the olive tapenade over the surface of the tart crust. 
  • Arrange the tomato slices into the tart pan, brush with the olive oil, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. 
  • Remove the tart from the oven and serve with basil leaves.
