French Summer Tomato Tart

Here in Sonoma County, we are blessed to share many commonalities with France, including our food and wine culture and our Mediterranean climate. Why not add a little French culture to your life and celebrate Bastille Day this year? This simple yet scrumptious Tomato Tart is the perfect addition to your Bastille Day Picnic!

  • Serves: 6 servings
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • roll of frozen puff pastry dough
  • 2 tablespoons tapenade(opt.)
  • 3-4 ripe tomatoes (enough to cover the surface of the pastry), thinly sliced
  • leaves from a few sprigs of fresh thyme
  • Fleur de Sel
  • freshly-ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons capers(opt.)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Roll out the pastry onto the paper, prick with the tongs of a fork, and spread with the tapenade, if using. Top with the tomatoes leaving some space around the edges free (these can be rolled in a bit and crimped with the tongs of a fork if desired). Scatter the capers, if using, and thyme over the tart and bake it for approximately 20 minutes. Serve warm with a simply dressed salad and a chilled rosé wine. Bon Appétit!
