Cruchy Tomato & Mustard Tart anyone? The perfect summer tart for lunch or for picnics!

I am a Tomato lover and you know what? You can do anything with tomatoes: both sweet and savory recipes. One of my favorites is a Tomato Tatin (Tarte Tatin) with vanilla, it’s so good!! I will make the recipe soon for you maybe 😀

Tomato and Mustard Tart is a staple in French homes so I’m sharing with you my recipe. The mustard gives a nice bite to the tomatoes and the crunch of the crust matches so well with the juicy tomatoes.

Usually, we use a short pastry but I always find it becomes very soft because of the juice of the tomatoes. This is why I used a pizza crust: because of the leavening agents in the dough, the bottom of the crust will stay crunchy. Exactly the thing we’re looking for in that case, right?

Which tomatoes do I choose?

I think the best is to use the meatiest tomatoes you can find (less juice). I love old varieties as I find they are tastier. But if you cannot find them, any meaty tomato (Betterboy, Bushsteak or Roma…) will do the trick!
