Tomato and Burrata Galette
This summery Tomato and Burrata Galette recipe is a wonderful excuse to purchase all those stunning ripe heirloom tomatoes at the farmer’s market. The flaky pastry, sweet roasted tomatoes, creamy burrata and herby pesto are an irresistible combination. Eat this savory galette with a glass of white wine, preferably al fresco.
This galette looks fancy. But made with store-bought pie crust, it’s easy to put together. Start with the tomatoes. Slice them from top to bottom and sprinkle with sea salt. Salting the tomatoes helps draw out the excess moisture. This step not only allows the tomatoes to caramelize but also ensures that the bottom of the galette stays flaky. Let them sit while you preheat the oven and roll out the crust. Brush the crust with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt. Arrange the tomato slices in the center, then fold the edges of the dough over the tomatoes. Bake the galette until golden brown. Allow the galette to cool slightly, then top with burrata, green pesto, fresh herbs, and a few grinds of fresh black pepper. Serve and enjoy!
