An elegant tart for a small brunch or light dinner.
Preheat oven to 450 F. Make your favorite pie crust recipe. Roll it out and fit it into a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom (a 9-inch shallow pie dish would work as well). With a fork, prick holes in the bottom of the crust, place some foil down on top of the crust and weigh it down with some dried beans or pie weights. Partially bake the crust for 8-10 minutes in a 450 F oven. Remove it from the oven and let it cool completely before assembling the tart (about 1-2 hours). At this point, lower the heat in the oven to 375 F.
Meanwhile, remove the stem part of the tomatoes and thinly slice them. Lay slices on a couple pieces of paper towel to drain. Remove any gooey/seedy parts and discard. Let them drain while the crust cools.
When crust is cool, spread two tablespoons of mustard in the bottom of the crust. Top with chopped olives, 1/4 cup of mozzarella, all of the tomatoes, pepper, salt, garlic, chives and basil. Then add a little more mozzarella.
In a small bowl combine the 1/2 cup Greek yogurt with the remaining cup of mozzarella and 1/2 cup of Parmesan. Spread the yogurt/cheese mixture over top of the other ingredients. Place the tart carefully onto a rimmed sheet pan and place it back into the oven (375 F) for 40-50 minutes or until the top is a deep golden brown. Let the tart cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
The texture is absolutely perfect, creamy and rich. You should start with 1/2 cup of cheese and go from there. If you want it cheesier and richer like me, then you can and should add 1/4 cup more. This is one of those recipes I have pinned to my fridge so that I have it close in those lazy single moments haha.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
