  1. Unroll pie crust on baking sheet. Top with 1 cup cheese, leaving a 1-1/2 inch border around edges. Arrange tomatoes in a single layer over cheese. Drizzle balsamic glaze evenly over tomatoes; top with basil and the remaining cheese.
  2. Fold edges of pie crust over filling, tucking and pressing down edges onto tart.
  3. Bake on lowest oven rack in a preheated 375 degrees F oven 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 15 minutes. Cut into wedges. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  • Helpful Tips: Balsamic glaze is found with the balsamic vinegar in the supermarket, but if not available, simmer 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar until reduced to 2 tablespoons, 6 to 7 minutes. Cool completely.
