  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 1 egg beaten
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 ½ cups grape or cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 large tomato thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley leaves chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme chopped
  • ⅓ cup shredded cheddar
  • 1/3 cup shredded smoked gruyere
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Gently rolling out the pastry puff sheet on a lightly floured surface to about a 10×13 inch rectangle. Place on a large baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Using a sharp knife score the edge of the dough leaving about 1 inch all the way around.
  3. Brush the puff pastry edge with the beaten egg.  Using a fork poke holes all along the puff pastry inside the edge.  Bake for 10 minutes or until slightly puffed and lightly browned.  Remove from the oven and using a spoon gently push down any puffiness inside the edge.
  4. Sprinkle the tart crust with mozzarella.  Top with the halved and sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle with the salt, pepper, basil, parsley, and thyme. Top with the shredded cheddar and gruyere cheese.  Drizzle with half the olive oil and bake for about 25 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the edges are golden brown. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil, slice, and serve.


  • Puff pastry comes in packs of two.  This recipe uses one sheet.  You can easily double the recipe using both sheets or save one of the sheets for another recipe.
  • For best results use fresh herbs and extra virgin olive oil.
  • Puff pastry takes about 40 minutes to thaw on the counter. Plan to start the recipe right after the pastry thaws enough to unfold it without tearing it.  Puff pastry can not be left at room temperature for too long.  See below for more about working with puff pastry.
  • Fresh garden tomatoes are a must with this recipe so look for farmer’s markets.
  • This recipe is best served shortly after it is prepared.  However to reheat place on a baking sheet and put in a preheated 250 degree oven until warmed.
