Puff Pastry Individual Tomato Tarts

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a great week.

I wanted to pop in today and share an easy and incredibly tasty recipe with you. Sometimes we are in need of a quick bite that packs a punch in flavor and presentation.  These individual puff pastry tomato tarts perfect for serving during summer, or fall.  They are easy to put together, loaded with fresh flavors and a crunch in every bite.

This recipe calls for fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, thyme, and caramelized red onions.  The puff pastry makes it flaky, light and mouthwatering.


Tomato Tart


  • 1 puff pastry sheet
  • 2 heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan, goat, or feta
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 red onion
  • fresh thyme
  • fresh basil


  1. Slice tomatoes thinly and place on paper towel. Sprinkle with salt. 
  2. Cut onions and cook in saucepan until caramelized. 
  3. Place puff pastry sheet on top of a wood cutting board and cut into small rounds.  I used a saucer as my template.  Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Brush puff pastry with beaten egg.
  5. Poke with a fork all over.
  6. Cover puff pastry with cheese or your choice.  I used a combination of goat cheese and parmesan cheese)  Be sure to add salt and pepper.
  7. Place puff pastry in 425 degree oven and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool a bit.
  8. Add caramelized onions, garlic and top with tomatoes and thyme.
  9. Sprinkle olive oil on tart.
  10. Bake the tart for 10-15 more minutes.
  11. After removing from oven sprinkle with fresh basil.

You can serve the tarts with a fresh salad.  They will also make for a tasty and quick appetizer in a pinch...  ENJOY!!!
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend.
