Heirloom tomato tart is a savory summertime pie made with three cheeses, colorful heirloom tomatoes, and fresh basil. Delicious and so easy!
Now that heirloom tomatoes are plentiful, this heirloom tomato tart is the perfect recipe to make for family or guests. It is a fresh, savory, delicious side dish or main dish served with soup or salad.
Refrigerated pie crust makes this pie super easy, but if you are savvy at making your own crust, it would be perfect! I love the Pillsbury refrigerated crusts and keep them on hand always. They are so easy to unroll, press into a pie plate, and bake to perfection. I think they taste great too:-)
Fresh basil is a must for this pie. Fresh basil, tomatoes, and mozzarella are a flavor-filled trio that is amazing. Dried basil just won’t fit the bill for this recipe.
Savvy suggestions: I like to pre-bake my pie crust for 8-10 minutes before assembling the tart. I also salt the tomato slices and place them on a paper towel an hour or so before adding to the recipe to remove as much liquid as possible. I put them on a paper towel lined plate in the fridge; this helps them lose lots of the moisture that would make a soggy pie.
I know there are many recipes for tomato tarts. If you have a favorite, please share. If you try this one, I’d love feedback. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
