This is absolutely delicious! I made my own pie crust using half Crisco and half butter, and I fit the crust into a pie plate rather than placing it on a baking sheet. Instead of two plum tomatoes, I used one large tomato on the vine. My husband and I enjoyed this for dinner with leftover turkey soup from Thanksgiving. Has anyone tried using light mayonnaise in this recipe? I don’t like the taste of the “fake” mayonnaise but I have some in my fridge and don’t want to waste it. I wonder if the flavors of the pesto, tomatoes, and cheese would drown out the inferior taste of the light mayo. At any rate, I will definitely make this tomato tart again and again!

This was very tasty. We used thin pizza crust rather than the pie pastry, and it came out beautifully.
