Tips & Tricks for Puff Pastry Tomato Tart
Thaw Puff Pastry
If you are working with frozen puff pastry, let it thaw before you lay out on the pan. This will keep it from breaking and cracking.
Fresh and Ripe Tomatoes
When you pick tomatoes aim for ripe ones. Ripe tomatoes will give your tart a nice sweet flavor along that pairs nicely with the herbs and seasonings. Additionally, make sure to place the tomatoes cut side down on the puff pastry to preserve more of their flavor!
Variations to Puff Pastry Tart Recipe
You can add some fresh mozzarella cheese to the the top of your tart before baking for added flavor. If you are vegan, you can use a dairy-free cheese substitute.
You could try spreading a thin layer of tomato sauce onto your tart base. Try using a straight tomato sauce or even pizza sauce. Then stack on the tomatoes for added flavor.
Flavoring Puff Pastry
Feel free to use different spices and herbs to create different flavor components for your tart. Even everything-but-the-bagel seasoning could be delicious on this tart!
Feel free to add other vegetables to your tomato tart. Sliced zucchini, onions, etc. are all delicious options! Just cut your vegetables small enough that they will cook down in the oven.
Puff Pastry Tomato Tart FAQs
How should I store leftover tomato tarts?
If you don't eat all of your tart right away, you can store it in the fridge for up to 2 days. You will find that your tart can become soggy as the tomatoes release their juices. Because of this, your tart will be best eaten fresh—but will store for a few days in the fridge if needed.
Can I use different types of tomatoes?
If you don't have small tomatoes, you can easily swap them out for slices of full-size tomatoes. Simply lay the slices down on the puff pastry and bake the same. Just make sure to thinly slice the tomatoes.
How can you reheat a tomato tart?
To reheat, you can simply warm up your tart in the microwave, or you can reheat it in the oven. For the oven method, place the tart on a baking sheet, set the oven to 350°F, and heat the tart for 5–7 minutes or until warmed through.
Puff Pastry Tomato Tart
- Preheat oven to to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Add the puff pastry to the lined baking sheet. (I buy mine pre-rolled, but if you need to roll it, then roll into a small rectangle.)
- Brush the puff pastry with olive oil, then add the tomatoes cut side down to the pastry.
- Brush the tops of the tomatoes with olive oil, then sprinkle with oregano, salt, and pepper.
- Fold the edges of the pastry up to meet the tomatoes. Then bake in preheated oven 20 minutes or until tomatoes are cooked and pastry is golden brown.
- Sprinkle with chopped basil and serve warm.
