How to make the tomato tart:

  • Place the pastry on a baking dish and poke a few holes all over with a fork.  (Leaving about a 1 cm rim where you don’t poke holes in the pastry.)
  • Sprinkle some olive oil all over.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half and spread it over the pastry.
  • Crumb the Feta chees on top and sprinkle with the rest of the olive oil.  (You can use a little bit more if you like.)
  • Break the basil leaves and decorate to top the tart.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 ˚C for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

More options:  You can make smaller individual tarts as well.

Did you know?

To “dock” a pastry means to prick a pie crust with a fork before baking.

It is just a way to poke holes in the pastry dough and allows the steam to escape so that the pie crust doesn’t puff up in the oven.
