The savory flavors of olives, Roma tomatoes, and Gruyere cheese combine to make a delectable tart fit for lunch or dinner


  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbs Dijon mustard
  • 1 lb Roma tomatoes, sliced into 1/8-inch thick rounds
  • 1 cup olives, halved
  • 2 tsp chopped thyme
  • 1/4 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 cup grated Gruyere cheese


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together warm water, yeast and sugar. Set aside for 5 minutes until mixture foams on top.
  • Mix in oil and egg. Add flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Knead together for about 5-8 minutes on a lightly floured surface until dough is smooth. Place dough in an oiled bowl and cover loosely with plastic wrap. Set aside in a warm area for 1 hour until doubled in size.
  • Roll out dough into a 13-inch circle. Transfer to an 11-inch tart pan, allowing sides to hang over the edges. Press sides into tart pan, then roll a rolling pin, over the top of the tart pan to cut off overhanging edges of dough and discard.
  • Spread mustard onto the bottom of tart crust. Cover with concentric circles of sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle olives, thyme, pepper and remaining salt on top. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 30 minutes. Cover with cheese and continue baking for 5-10 more minutes until melted and golden brown.
