Thanks Keresa - no I missed that 😕 I wouldn't want a soggy bottom 😳

That's great. Did you read my tip about bread crumbs?
If you didn't, then sprinkle breadcrumbs between the bottom of the pastry and the roasting tray or grease proof paper - whatever you are using - that will absorb any juices from the tomatoes and prevent a soggy bottom on the tart.

@Al Thawer I forgot to mention that you should put breadcrumbs under the puff pastry and on top of the baking sheet. This will absorb any juice from the tomatoes and prevent a soggy bottom on the tart.

Scatter fresh basil leaves when done.

Yes. Incredibly simple.
Puff pastry base, different types of tomatoes, black olive tapenade - if you like olives- cumin seeds, mixed herbs, kashmiri chilli, mozzarella ball or cheese of your choice. Not cheddar. 1 egg.

Roll out the pastry, curl the sides up a little to make a tart shape. Dry roast the cumin seeds and sprinkle on the base. Spread tapenade if using. Slice tomatoes, lay them overlapping on the pastry. Season with salt and Kashmiri chilli. Break up cheese and scatter on top. Drizzle a little olive oil- I used a garlic flavoured one. Egg wash the exposed pastry. If you don't like completely melted cheese, add the cheese halfway through cooking.

Bake at 170°C for about 45 mins to 1 hour, depending on your oven. Once pastry is well risen and tomatoes gooey, it's done.
Good Luck. Post a picture.

That would be perfect. I'll make it again as soon as we have a warm summer's day. With a glass of crisp cold white wine.

Woulx be perfect for lunch, with a crisp green salad, whilst sitting outside on a warm summer's day. 🙆‍♂️

It was part of brunch, so had some crepes and sausages as well. I served the tart with poached eggs. If I were serving it for a light lunch, then I'd have a salad with it and a slice of ham.
