Cheese and Tomato ‘Pizza’ Tart

Cheese and Tomato ‘Pizza’ Tart

Yep! A savoury tart that tastes just like pizza, I’m sure you’ll love this one!

Here’s what you need to get started;

For the pastry;

  • 255g GF plain flour
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 100g cold butter, diced
  • 1 egg, beaten

For the tart;

  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 2tsp mixed herbs (thyme, basil, rosemary etc)
  • 2tsp oil
  • 1tsp garlic granules
  • Around 10 plum tomatoes
  • 1 tin plum tomatoes
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 20ml milk
  • 1 pack of mozzarella, chopped

Pre-heat the oven to 180.

For the pastry mix together the flour, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt. Once combined add in the butter and rub in with your fingers until the mixture forms breadcrumbs. Mix in the egg and then stir in a couple of tablespoons of water until a dough forms. Cover in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Roll out the pastry on a floured surface until around 4mm thick and large enough to fit inside your tin. Line the tart tin and use any excess to cover any gaps or tears.

Prick the base several times with a fork, cover with greaseproof paper and fill with baking beans. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove the beans and greaseproof and bake for another 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, add the oil to a frying pan and fry the onion for around 5 minutes, until soft. Add in the garlic and the tomatoes and cook for a further 5 minutes. Add in the herbs with the tin of plum tomatoes and leave to simmer for around 10 minutes. Stir in the egg and milk and place in the pastry case. Topped with the mozzarella and place in the oven.

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, until golden on the top and set.
