Roasted Tomato And Mozzarella Caprese Tart

Here is an amazing Caprese Tart that is made with flaky puff pastry, then filled with roasted delicious tomatoes and fresh mozzarella, then topped with fresh basil leaves. Perfect for a brunch or lunch with friends, picnic on the beach, to serve as an appetizer at a party. This recipe will be a hit, what is not to like about this amazing tart. Yummy, so glad I found this recipe!!!

Ingredients for the roasted tomatoes:
  • 10 tomatoes, sliced into 1 inch slices
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • sea salt flakes
  • pinch of sugar
  • black pepper
Ingredients for the tart:
  • 1 roll, ready-made puff pastry, defrosted
  • 7-8 ounces fresh mozzarella sliced into ½ inch slices
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • fresh basil leaves


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees
  2. Place the sliced tomatoes on a non-stick baking tray and drizzle with the olive oil. Add the thyme, salt, sugar and salt and place in the oven.
  3. Allow to roast for 20 minutes or until the tomatoes are soft and are caramelizing around the edges.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Turn the oven down to 350 degrees.
  5. To make the tart, roll the pastry out a little thinner and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Score around the edges using a fork to make a border, ensuring you don't cut through the pastry.
  6. Place the tomatoes and mozzarella on the pastry, alternating between the two.
  7. Brush the edges of the pastry with the beaten egg.
  8. Drizzle a little olive oil over the tomatoes and mozzarella and season with salt & pepper.
  9. Place in the oven and allow to bake for 15-20 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden.
  10. Remove from the oven and top with the fresh basil leaves. Serve immediately.
