Tomato And Ricotta Puff Pastry Tart

Puff pastry, ricotta cheese and cherry tomato tart – that simple. With just a few ingredients this dish comes up together in under half an hour. If you are super ambitious, you can make your own puff pastry, but I did not do that. Adding things on top, like prosciutto or arugula is also an option. But keeping this tart as it is perfectly enough.

Servings 8 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 250 g ricotta
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • 7-8 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

For the coating

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp milk

Optional toppings

  • arugula
  • parmesan shavings
  • prosciutto
  • basil leaves

Instructions
 

  • Mix ricotta and seasoning in a food processor with some olive oil until creamy.
  • Spread the puff pastry and mark the edges with a knife (don’t cut through completely). Take a fork and poke the dough on several places to stop the middle part rising.
  • Spread the ricotta and leave the edges clean. Cut the tomatoes thinly and spread on top, drizzle with some olive oil.
  • Brush the edges with egg and milk.
  • Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes on 200 degrees Celsius or until the edges become golden.
  • Add some basil, arugula, pamesan or prosciutto on top if desired. But it’s perfectly good without it as well.
