This is a great summer recipe; the roasted tomatoes work well with the caramelised shallots and flaky puff pastry. Spray some water during the bake to help the puff pastry rise in your wood-fired oven. Pair with a green salad coated in thick French dressing and pair with a crisp glass of white wine.


  • 500g all butter puff pastry
  • 1Kg heritage tomatoes
  • 6 shallots, finely chopped
  • 6 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • Olive oil
  • 1 egg yolk to glaze the pastry
  • Caster sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


    1. Pre-heat your wood-fired oven to 180°C.
    2. In a medium frying pan, slowly fry the chopped shallots and thyme in olive oil for around 20 minutes until soft and golden brown. Season with salt and pepper then set aside.
    3. Roll the puff pastry into a rectangle of around 3mm thick, trim the edges to get the perfect edge. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and lay the pastry rectangle. Roll the trimmed edges of pastry to 3mm thick and cut 4 x ½ inch wide strips to make a border and stick them with some egg wash. Prick the base of the rectangle all over with a fork and then store the pastry case in the fridge for 10 minutes whilst you prepare the tomatoes.
    4. Slice the tomatoes approximately 5mm thick and set aside. Spoon the caramelised shallots all over the base of the tart and egg wash the borders. Top with the sliced tomatoes. Season with salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar and drizzle with some olive oil.
    5. Bake in the centre of your wood-fired oven for 40 minutes, spraying some water during the start of the bake to create some steam and help the puff pastry rise. Allow the tart to cool down for 5 minutes before serving it.

      My Fuego wood fired pizza oven...

      “Our Fuego wood oven has transformed our restaurant! As a piece of kit, it is extremely versatile and controllable, allowing us to roast all of our meats and vegetables in the wood burning oven as well as using it as a charcoal grill during service. The flavour of everything coming out of the Fuego clay pizza oven is incredible due to the amazing smoky, charred tones added to the smell and taste of everything that’s cooked in it. It is not expensive to run as all the kiln-dried wood we use heats the wood fired pizza oven pretty quickly and it retains its temperature really well, only needing to add logs to the fire a few times over the course of service.”

      My Fuego wood fired pizza oven...

      “We wanted a traditional wood oven that ticked lots of boxes, for us it had to be made of brick for the authentic feel, have amazing functionality and great quality. Our Fuego clay pizza oven ticks them all. Our pizza nights are such a fantastic feature for the guests that stay in our holiday cottages and it’s a great way of bringing friends and family together for making those special memories. Highly recommended”
