Fresh Tomato Tart Recipe

Fresh Tomato Tart

Serves 8

The perfect celebration of summer, ripe tomatoes float on a goat cheese filling in a pre-baked tart or pie shell. Add fresh herbs and a drizzle of Metropolitan Market olive oil and balsamic. Serve as an appetizer on small plates or as a special side with grilled fish or chicken.


  • 1 disk (1/2 box) frozen French Picnic Pie Pastry or one batch of all-butter pie dough
  • 2 (4-ounce) packages Metropolitan Market Mediterranean or Herb & Garlic Goat Cheese, at room temperature
  • 3 to 4 medium fresh tomatoes (red, yellow or green)
  • 5 to 6 small cherry or grape tomatoes (red, yellow or green)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Fresh soft herbs (sliced basil, rosemary, chopped thyme)
  • Metropolitan Market Aged Balsamic Vinegar
  • Metropolitan Market Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  1. Let pastry rest at room temperature for 10 minutes. Press dough into a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom.
  2. Follow package directions to line pastry, weight and fully bake. Crust. Cool as directed.
  3. Make filling; place cheese in a medium bowl. Mash cheese with cream (or mix on low speed with an electric mixer) until smooth and spreadable. Chill
  4. Spread cheese evenly in bottom of crust. (Can be covered and chilled for a couple of hours before serving.)
  5. To serve, remove bottom of tart pan and place tart on serving plate. Lay the tomato slices in/over cheese. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and fresh herbs. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar. Cut into 8 wedges.
  6. Note:
  7. We used an 8-9” removable bottom tart pan, you can also use a pie plate.
