Tips & Tricks for Puff Pastry Tomato Tart

Puff Pastry Tomato Tart

Thaw Puff Pastry

If you are working with frozen puff pastry, let it thaw before you lay out on the pan. This will keep it from breaking and cracking.

Fresh and Ripe Tomatoes

When you pick tomatoes aim for ripe ones. Ripe tomatoes will give your tart a nice sweet flavor along that pairs nicely with the herbs and seasonings. Additionally, make sure to place the tomatoes cut side down on the puff pastry to preserve more of their flavor!



  • 1 puff pastry thawed from frozen
  • 2 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1 pint baby tomatoes halved
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh basil leaves optional


  • Preheat oven to to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add the puff pastry to the lined baking sheet. (I buy mine pre-rolled, but if you need to roll it, then roll into a small rectangle.)
  • Brush the puff pastry with olive oil, then add the tomatoes cut side down to the pastry.
  • Brush the tops of the tomatoes with olive oil, then sprinkle with oregano, salt, and pepper.
  • Fold the edges of the pastry up to meet the tomatoes. Then bake in preheated oven 20 minutes or until tomatoes are cooked and pastry is golden brown.
  • Sprinkle with chopped basil and serve warm.
