Easy, Elegant Tomato Tart avec Brie


    Unbleached all-purpose flour (for dusting)
    8 oz. puff pastry (or 1 sheet of a 17.3-ounce package), preferably all-butter
    12 oz. mixed tomatoes cut into 1/4"-thick rounds
    Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
    4 oz. Brie, sliced 1/4 inch thick
    1 Tbsp. capers, drained
    1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
    1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
    Dressed salad greens, for serving


Preheat oven to 400°F, with a rack in center. On a lightly floured sheet of parchment, roll pastry out to a 9 ½"-by-11 ½" rectangle (1/8" thick). Trim edges straight. Refrigerate 10 minutes on a baking sheet.

Sprinkle tomatoes with salt, and arrange tomatoes on paper towels. Top with more paper towels to absorb excess liquid.

Score edges of pastry, creating a ½" border. Spread Dijon mustard inside border, then top with cheese, tomatoes, capers, and thyme, overlapping tomatoes slightly. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then bake 15 minutes.

Lower temperature to 375°; continue baking for 25-35 minutes more, until golden brown and cooked through. Serve warm or at room temperature with greens.
