Tomato and Zucchini Tart with Garlic

I originally planned for this tart to be a quick, plain tomato-style to use up some of my garden tomatoes. Instead, I just kept adding things and it turned into an awesome tart with zucchini and garlic. Those combinations are so amazing together!

I brought this over to my parents house after I made it and we polished it off before dinner as a little appetizer while we cooked. There was seriously nothing left! It definitely hit the spot with it's rustic flavor and the slight buttery notes from the pastry.

It's so easy to make, looks so elegant, and it's so tasty that it's sure to be a hit as an appetizer, a veggie-filled breakfast, or any other reason you could serve it! It would be great paired with a salad or soup for a light lunch, too.

If you still have some tomatoes and zucchini sitting around, this is a great way to use them up!

Tomato and Zucchini Tart with Garlic
12 Servings


1/2 pkg puff pastry sheets (1 sheet)
flour for dusting
6-8 roma tomatoes, sliced into 1/4" slices
1 med/lg zucchini, sliced into 1/8" halves
3 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, smashed
kosher salt and pepper
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Unfold pastry on lightly floured surface and use a rolling pin to roll into a rectangle about 10"x13". Place pastry onto parchment-lined baking sheet.
3. Lightly score a line around all the edges about 1/2" from the pastry edge. Prick the entire pastry with a fork.
4. Mix together oil and garlic. Brush the pastry, inside the score marks, with about 1/3 of the oil mixture. Layer on tomatoes and zucchini, alternating rows.
5. Brush tomatoes and zucchini with remaining oil then sprinkle with salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese.
6. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
