Tomato Basil Tart

This is not a great pic, I just snapped a quick one on my phone on the way out the door. This tomato tart is a great dish to take to a brunch pot lock, teacher luncheon, or just anywhere you need a delicious side. It's pretty and simple!

  • Pie Crust, store bought
  • 1 1/2 C shredded Mozzarella
  • 4 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/4 C pesto
  • 1/2 C mayo
  • 1/4 C shredded Parmesan cheese
  • fresh basil for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • salt/pepper
  • Bake pie crust according to directions on crust.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle 1/2 cup Mozzarella on bottom. Let cool.
  • While crust is cooling, cut tomatoes into slices (about 1/4" thick or thicker if preferred) and drain on paper towel.
  • Spread layer of pesto over cheese.
  • Place tomatoes over pesto layer.
  • Combine mayo, Parmesan, pepper/salt, garlic powder and remaining Mozzarella and spread on top.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes or until browned.
