Tomato Puff Pastry Tart

May 6, 2020

Super easy, quick, delicious, and good looking recipe. I don’t eat fresh tomatoes, but once they’re cooked, YUM. To make it this tart look extra good, you need to find different types and colors of tomatoes.

If you don’t have ceramic baking beans, just use any dry beans like chickpeas to control the baking of the tart shell. MAKE SURE you put baking paper between the dough and the beans to avoid them sticking. You can later place beans in a bag and use them whenever for blind baking.
