Equipment

  • Oven proof dish
  • knife
  • chopping board

Ingredients

  • 300 g Puff pastry (You can use a ready rolled pack from the supermarket which is about 320g)
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Clove of garlic
  • 1 Chilli optional
  • 600-800 g Tomatoes in different sizes You could go up to a 1 kg of tomatoes if your base is large.
  • 1 Mozzarella ball
  • Basil leaves
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Remove the pastry from the oven 20 minutes before you want to use it. This will allow it to become easier to roll out.
  • Preheat the oven to 220ºC/200º fan
  • Roll out the puff pastry, cut it into a circle and place it in an oven proof dish or tart tin.
  • With a knife mark a 1.5/2cm boarder. Using a pastry brush, brush melted butter on around the boarder.
  • Chop up an onion and soften in a saucepan with a little knob of butter.
  • Once the onion has started going see through add a chopped clove of garlic, a few slices of red chilli and basil leaves.
  • Once all soft remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before adding to the puff pastry base.
  • Spoon the onion mix on the pastry, leaving the boarder free.
  • Chop the tomatoes in to slices and place over the onions and garlic. Try not to layer the tomatoes too much. A bit of an overlap about 2 thick seem to work well.
  • Pop in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Until golden brown and crisp.
  • Serve straight away and enjoy.

Notes

The tart saves really well for lunch boxes and served cold.
