Tomato Tart with Pesto and Mozzarella


On these last days of summer, I made this fresh and healthy summer tomato tart with pesto and mozzarella. I love it al fresco with wine. It’s much nicer when you use variety of tomatoes like heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, mini marzano, pear tomatoes. If you grow your own tomatoes in your garden or got some from someone you know, this is perfect. Put them in! Of course you can make this tart without making the crust as well as the pesto for the filling, you can use store-bought shortbread crust pastry and pesto. But making it all from scratch is so rewarding, you can taste the freshness of the homemade pesto and crunchy crust. It will come out quite delicious.

What you will need

1 2/3 cups sifted flour

7 tablespoons cold butter, diced

1 egg, beaten

2 teaspoons water

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups variation of small tomatoes

1 mozzarella ball

1 cup pesto

coarse salt to taste
