The Farmer's Markets will be starting soon and the abundance that spring and summer have to offer will be in my grasp.  Believe me I will be one of the firsts to welcome it in.  In celebration of the good times to come, I bring you the Tomato Tart.  These would be so wonderful at a bridal shower, a ladies luncheon, or as an appetizer for a cocktail party.  Served with a small salad these are a perfect size for lunch. 

Wishing you all beautiful, warm spring days!

 Tomato Tart



I used one half of the recipe of Cheri's Favorite Pizza Dough


Preheat oven to 500°.  While the oven is heating shape your dough into desired shape, I made 4" rounds.  Poke several small holes in the crust with a fork to prevent bubbling.  Brush pizza dough with extra-virgin olive oil.  Transfer pizza dough to whatever, pan, stone, etc you will be using for cooking.  Cook pizza dough for 7 minutes or until crust is golden. 

In a small mixing bowl combine first (3) ingredients.  Spread cream cheese mixture over pizza dough after they have slightly cooled, and layer tomatoes over the top.
