Tomato Mozzarella Basil Tart

Basil Garlic Dough
8 ounces sliced mozzarella cheese
heirloom cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place chilled dough on a lightly floured surface and roll out into a 12-inch circle. Place in a tart pan. Loosely place a sheet of aluminum foil over the dough and place baking beads in the middle. Bake in the oven 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully remove the baking beads and foil. Place in oven for 5 more minutes. Remove and lower oven to 375°F.

Evenly place the sliced mozzarella in the baked pie crust. Evenly place the tomatoes on top of the cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Evenly drizzle the olive oil on top. Finish by placing Parmesan cheese and basil on top.
Bake about 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese starts to bubble. Once the tart has been in the oven for 15 minutes, rotate 180° and soak any excess moisture with a paper towel if necessary. Allow to set 5 minutes before serving.

    This looks great! I don't have a sweet tooth but if anything contains cheese and pastry I'm sold immediately!
