  • In a large bowl combine dry ingredients. Cut in the butter until the whole mixture has a rough, crumbly texture leaving a few larger pieces of butter

  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Line your counter with parchment paper dust with gluten free flour and put your dough on top, sprinkle with some more flour. Roll out into a circle to fit your tart pan. Press the pastry onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom
  • Place the dough in the tart pan including up the sides
  • Spread ½ cup of cheese over the bottom. Scatter with half the basil. Top with tomato slices
  • Mix olive oil and garlic and brush the tops of the tomatoes with the oil. Sprinkle with hot chili pepper flakes
  • Top with another layer of basil leaves and remaining cheese. Bake for 20 minutes until the crust starts to brown
