Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart

Many people may think of a tart as a dessert item, perhaps topped with fruits, curds, or meringues. This tomato and goat cheese tart recipe is a spin on the conventional tart concept. Interestingly enough, this tart is assembled like a pizza. The simplicity of it allows the quality of the ingredients to shine through, layer by layer. The chevre, herb goat cheese is distributed evenly all over the puff pastry. Initially, we though it wasn't enough. But after it baked in the oven, it melted and was definitely sufficient and satisfying. The heaviness of the cheeses are balanced with the thick slice of heirloom tomato placed in the middle. All together, the tart was a harmonious mixture of vegetables and cheeses and is a great idea for a light dinner. It can also be offered with a light frisee salad.
