This gorgeous tomato tart is so juicy and fresh. The crème fraîche and wholegrain mustard base are a perfect complement to the tomatoes.

The flaky puff pastry crust is golden and delicious - providing a perfect tart shell for the whole dish.

This tart can be served warm or at room temperature.

For this tomato tart, you’ll need the following ingredients.

  • Puff pastry
  • Crème Fraîche
  • Wholegrain Mustard (or Dijon Mustard)
  • Chives
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Fresh Tomatoes (I used 1 green tomato, 2 red heirloom tomatoes, 2 Kumato tomatoes, and a mix of colorful cherry tomatoes)

Optional - top the tart with fresh herbs after baking (fresh basil is especially good!) You can also drizzle the baked tart with some olive oil after it comes out of the oven.


This tomato tart recipe is relatively simple to make, but there are a few specific steps to follow.

Thaw the puff pastry. Make sure to thaw your puff pastry in advance (if it’s frozen - put it in the fridge for 24 hours before you use it)

Preheat. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Prep the puff pastry. On a lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll out the puff pastry to a 10x12-inch rectangle. Place a piece of parchment paper and pastry on a baking sheet. With a knife, run a ½-inch border around the edge then prick it all over with a fork. (see the photo above for reference)

Prep the base. In a small bowl, combine the crème fraîche, mustard, salt, and pepper. Spread the crème fraîche mixture across the pastry, leaving a ½-inch border all the way around. Sprinkle with chopped chives. (you can blend this in a food processor if you want a super creamy mixture!)

Add the tomatoes. Top with the tomato slices and then sprinkle a little salt across the tomatoes.

Bake. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown.

Serve. Let cool slightly before cutting it with a sharp knife and serving. Top with extra chives or a sprinkle of kosher salt if desired.

Tips for Making this Recipe

Cooking Tips - The tomatoes are going to release a lot of water, here's how to keep your puff pastry crispy.

  • Prick the uncooked puff pastry several times with a fork (this allows more steam to vent, creating very crispy layers)
  • Cook this till the crust is golden brown
  • Allow the tomato slices to rest on a few paper towels for a few minutes before placing them on the tart. This will soak up excess water.

The worst thing is undercooked puff pastry, so make sure to let your puff pastry get nice and toasty before you remove it!

Ingredient Tips - You don't have to use a variety of colorful tomatoes - it's lots of fun if you do, but sometimes they can be hard to source. I like to get unusual tomatoes from the farmer's market and I love this mix of Wild Wonder tomatoes.

I always use a store-bought puff pastry. Dufour Puff Pastry is the only puff pastry I use - I cannot recommend it enough!
