Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart

This tomato and goat cheese tart makes for a delightful appetiser or a light lunch option. The combination of juicy tomatoes, creamy goat cheese, and flaky puff pastry creates a harmonious blend of flavours. Enjoy it on its own or pair it with a fresh green salad for a complete meal.


  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • 4-5 medium-sized tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 ounces (113 grams) goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry sheet to your desired thickness. Transfer the rolled-out pastry onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Prick the surface of the puff pastry with a fork to prevent it from puffing up too much during baking.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
  5. Brush the olive oil mixture evenly over the surface of the puff pastry, leaving a small border around the edges.
  6. Sprinkle the crumbled goat cheese over the pastry, distributing it evenly.
  7. Arrange the sliced tomatoes on top of the goat cheese, overlapping them slightly.
  8. Season the tomatoes with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  9. Place the tart in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and crispy.
  10. Once baked, remove the tart from the oven and allow it to cool slightly. Sprinkle the chopped fresh basil leaves over the top for added freshness and flavour.
  11. Slice the tomato and goat cheese tart into squares or wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.
