Layers of puff pastry sheet topped with slices of thin tomatoes, zucchini and cheese. The dish bakes and the cheese melts between the tomatoes and zucchini and you get a bite of all the ingredients in one bite. A truly delicious and gorgeous side dish to serve at parties or potlucks.

I love baking with pastry sheets. Using the store-bought dough makes for a quick appetizer or side. They can be used as a savory side like our Seafood Phyllo Cups or even the Cherry Pastry Cake, if you’d like to make a dessert.

how to make zucchini tart-

  • Remove a pastry sheet from the freezer and completely thaw. Preheat oven to 355°F.
  • Spray 9″x13″ baking pan with baking spray. Place pastry sheet on the pan, spread some of the sheet to go up again sides of pan to create sides for the tart.
  • Slice the zucchini into thin slices, we got about 21 slices. Slice the tomatoes into about 4 slices each. (Tips: The larger slices in the middle of tomato cut in half. If tomatoes are very juicy, dab lightly with a paper towel. Too much tomato juice with make the pastry sheet soggy and hard to bake.)
  • Cut cheese slices in four equal parts.
