    Milk, Eggs, Other Dairy

Steps

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 10" tart pan with a removable bottom.
  • Combine the cornmeal, almond flour, and salt in a food processor or mixing bowl. Pulse or stir to combine.
  • Add the cubed butter and pulse until the butter is in small, pea-sized chunks, or use a pastry cutter (or your hands) to cut the butter into the flour.
  • Add the ice water, a tablespoon at a time, and pulse a few times until just combined, or toss to combine until the dough comes together in a shaggy ball. Press the dough evenly into the prepared pan along the bottom and up the sides.
  • Place in the freezer for 15 minutes (or up to a few weeks).
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Combine the ricotta and the chopped basil.
  • Spread on the bottom of the cooled crust. Arrange the sliced heirloom tomatoes on top and garnish with flaky sea salt, pepper, and basil leaves.
  • Serve immediately or store in the fridge until serving. I recommend serving it the same day its made.
