Nothing beats the fresh tomatoes of summer.

Nothing, perhaps, except a luscious, juicy phyllo tart featuring them!

What is Phyllo Crust?

Filo or phyllo (Greek: φύλλο “leaf”) is a very thin unleavened dough used for making pastries such as baklava and börek in Middle Eastern and Balkan cuisines.

Filo-based pastries are made by layering many sheets of filo brushed with olive oil or butter; the pastry is then baked.

I love flaky, buttery phyllo dough because the more layers you add, the more fabulous your crust. In this recipe, you’ll brush each layer of phyllo dough with a melted butter + garlic sauce which is just.everything.

Top the crust with mozzarella cheese and you basically have an amazing phyllo Crack Bread. You could literally just eat it as-is.

But today, we’re taking advantage of the glorious ripe summer tomatoes, sliced and arranged carefully on the bed of mozzarella. And just to put this thing RIGHT over the top, add a sprinkle of feta cheese.

Are Tomato Skins Bad for You?

Tomatoes are a big part of the famously healthy Mediterranean diet.

Eating tomato skin is good for health .

They have plenty of fiber and will help clean out a digestive system.

Bake your Mozzarella Tomato Tart to flaky, golden perfection and garnish with fresh basil leaves.

It’s an easy, elegant appetizer perfect for summer entertaining, or make it the focal point of your next lunch or brunch. It’s gorgeous on the table and tastes so good.

It’s a Caprese-style cheesy garlic bread elevated to full-blown Tart status.
