Tomato Basil and Bacon Tart
Great way to use up extra tomatoes!"I made this tart today for a family brunch. Everyone loved it! The only problem was that the recipe doesn't mention the basil and how much to add. I just processed about 3 basil leaves and added them to the crust. YUMMY!" - suejt

Tomato Basil and Bacon Tart Preparation
In a food processor, add the flour and butter, pulsing 5-6 times until the mixture is crumbly.
Gradually add water, pulsing until the dough forms a ball.
Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until it can be rolled easily.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to fit a 9-in. tart pan with a removable bottom.
Place the pastry in the pan and trim the edge.
Bake at 350° for 13-15 minutes until lightly browned.
While the pastry is baking, thinly slice the tomatoes and place on paper towels, salt them and cover with another layer of paper towel. This will prevent the dough from getting soggy.
Sprinkle 2 cups cheese into the crust; top with basil and garlic slices.
Arrange the tomato slices in a circular pattern around the edge of the tart leaving three for the middle.
Drizzle with the oil, salt and pepper.
Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the tomatoes in the center.
Sprinkle the bacon bits around the tart.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until the cheese melts.
