Pastry Dough

  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, shredded on large holes of box grater and frozen
  • 4-5 tablespoons ice water

Tomato Goat Cheese Filling

  • 1 lb heirloom tomatoes, sliced 1/4-in thick (about 3 medium tomatoes)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh herbs (oregano, basil, or chives)


Pastry Dough

  • Place flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl and use your fingers or a pastry cutter to work butter into flour until butter is in pea-sized clumps. Drizzle 4 tablespoons ice water over flour and gently toss until dough comes together into a shaggy mass. (if dough seems too dry, drizzle in extra tablespoon) 
  • Turn dough onto a surface and very gently knead several times until smooth. Form dough into a smooth disc and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill dough 30 minutes while you prepare the filling.

Tomato Goat Cheese Filling

  • In a medium bowl, toss tomatoes and garlic with salt. Let stand 30 minutes for tomatoes to release their juices. Drain tomatoes and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Preheat oven to 425F. Line a large baking sheet or a pizza stone with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Remove dough from fridge and turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 12-in circle (about 1/8-inch thickness) and place on parchment paper lined baking sheet OR a pizza stone.
  • Crumble goat cheese to within 2 inches of circle edges. Arrange tomatoes and garlic over top. Gather up edges of dough and fold over, just barely covering filling to create a border.
  • Brush galette crust with egg/water wash and sprinkle salt and pepper over top. Refrigerate galette 15 minutes.
  • Bake galette at 425F 45-50 minutes until pastry is a deep golden brown and tomatoes are bubbly. Remove from oven and sprinkle herbs over top. Allow galette to cool at least 30 minutes before slicing into wedges and serving. Enjoy!
