Tarte à la moutarde (mustard & tomato tart) is a French classic that makes for a delicious vegetarian lunch and a good alternative to the conventional Italian pizza. I usually make Tarte à la moutarde with puff pastry but today I’m trying something a little different as I made pizza dough with the Tefal Cuisine Companion instead of puff pastry.
Tarte à la moutarde
- 400 g plain flour
- 250 ml warm water
- 10 g dry yeast
- A pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup Maille Dijon mustard
- 3 large ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
- 1 cup of grated Swiss cheese (or cheddar)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons herbes de Provence (or half a cup of fresh basil leaves)
- Place the water and yeast in the Cuisine Companion bowl fitted with the kneading blade. Launch P1 pastry program. After 30 seconds, add the flour, salt and olive oil. At the end of the program, roll out the dough and place in a large bowl. Leave to rest for a few hours or until the dough has fully raised.
- Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
- Roll-out your dough on a lightly floured cold surface.
- Place dough in a pizza pan and with a fork, poke holes into the bottom of the crust.
- Spread the Dijon mustard in an even layer.
- Arrange slices of tomatoes, overlapping in a spiral from the edge to the centre.
- Drizzle olive oil over the tomatoes, and sprinkle the tart with the herbes de Provence.
- Top with Swiss cheese.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the crust has browned, the cheese has melted, and the tomatoes are curled at the edges, about 20 minutes.
- Serve warm or cold.
