Rustic Pesto Tart

Talk about easy! Almost everything in this pesto-cranberry tart is store-bought. Although the tart can be enjoyed shortly after it comes out of the oven, it’s just as good served at room temperature.

Serves 12

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 45 min.


  • 1 pound prepared whole-wheat pizza dough, (see Tip)
  • 1/4 cup prepared pesto
  • 6 tablespoon dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup shredded fontina or Swiss cheese

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Step 2

Sprinkle work surface and dough with flour. Press dough out and roll, stretch or toss it into a 14-inch circle. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Spread pesto on the dough to within 1/8 inch of the edge. Sprinkle cranberries and cheese evenly over the pesto. Fold 1 to 1 1/2 inches of the border over the filling all the way around, leaving the center exposed.

Step 3

Bake the tart until browned and bubbling, 20 to 22 minutes. Cool on the pan for 5 minutes before cutting into 12 pieces.
