caramelized heirloom tomato and corn galette

Did I forget to mention that it’s TOMATO WEEK?!

So, basically the best week of the year. Maybe even better than Christmas?

It’s close.


I actually got an email in my inbox yesterday letting me know that summer is so last year. At least on Pinterest, where pumpkin is apparently already going wild. I know I complained about this yesterday, but seriously people?!



I don’t know how it is where you are, but my favorite summer heirloom tomatoes have actually been pretty few and far between this year, hence the scarcity of tomato recipes around here this summer. Some serious scavenging happened just so I could get my hands on these (as in, I may or may not have manhandled every tomato in the store just to find the five that I wanted). Sure, I could have settled for some red on red on red tomato galette action, but I had already committed to a rainbow tomato galette in my mind…and I just couldn’t let myself down.


You’re glad I’m so stubborn, right?

(Can I get that in writing? Or, specifically, in a personalized letter addressed to my husband? Kthanks.)


Believe it or not, galettes are actually considered the ugly duckling of the pie world! Sure, they don’t have all of their edges crimped and top crusts interwoven just so, but there’s definitely some rustic beauty going on here. Perfection in imperfection? <–Yes, that.

Also, the most flaky thick buttery perfect crust I’ve ever made in my life…that definitely helps.

Then there’s the gooey mozzarella goat cheese layer, the fresh corn and basil layer, and the caramelized tomato with a dash of parm on top layer.

The deliciousness just slays me. Every time.


Summer, I’m never letting go.

Caramelized Heirloom Tomato and Corn Galette
There's no better way to celebrate fresh summer heirloom tomatoes than with this caramelized heirloom tomato and corn galette!
Yield: 6-8 servings
For the crust
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 16 tbsp unsalted butter, chilled and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • ⅓ cup ice cold water
For the filling
  • 4 oz goat cheese, crumbled
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1 ear of corn kernels
  • 2 oz basil, thinly sliced
  • 1¾ lb mixed heirloom tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  1. For the crust, combine the flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor, pulsing to combine. Add the butter and pulse until the texture is like cornmeal, with the biggest butter pieces being the size of pebbles. Add in the Greek yogurt, vinegar, and water. Pulse just until the dough comes together. Pat the dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic and chill for at least one hour and up to two days.
  2. Heat oven to 400F.
  3. When the dough has chilled, roll it out into a 16-inch round on a floured work surface. Transfer to a parchment-lined pizza pan or baking sheet.
  4. Sprinkle the dough with goat cheese and mozzarella, leaving a 1½ to 2 inch border. Top with the corn and half of the basil. Arrange the tomato slices on top of the cheese/corn mixture so that they slightly overlap. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and salt and black pepper to season. Fold the border over the filling, pleating it as necessary, leaving the center open.
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Top with remaining basil right before serving.

    I’m holding on to the last little bits of summer with all my might, so I say BRING ON THE ‘MATERS, girl! I think this galette is just gorgeous, and those caramelized onions are making my mouth water. Brava!

  11. I can’t get enough tomatoes but my garden died in the intense heat this year. Those heirlooms are amazing. Love the yellow tomatoes, they have a sweetness about them….great flavor pairing with goat cheese!

  12. As excited as I am for all things pumpkin… these gorgeous heirloom tomatoes are making me want to cling to the end of summer. Wish I had this right now for brunch!

  13. So glad you went scavenging – because this galette with those multi-colored tomatoes is a thing of beauty indeed!

  14. While I’m ready for a lot of aspects of fall, I am definitely not ready to give up all the summer produce!

  15. Tomatoes and peaches are the two things I miss like the dickens once Fall arrives. I’m gonna have to whip up this galette and prolong summer as long as possible.

  16. I can’t get enough of those heirloom tomatoes! The galette looks amazingly delicious.

  17. Those glorious heirloom tomato pics make me weak in the knees! It’s like tomato-porn. Heehehe. Even better over a scandalous galette crust. I wonder if I’ll be getting tomatoes when my csa starts. Can’t wait!!

  18. Eileen says:

    Yes! All tomatoes, all the time! This sounds like a perfect way to make the most of the late summer harvest.

  19. Well, you know I love this. 🙂 And with goat cheese? THE BEST.

  20. Krista says:

    Ohhh, I love galettes so much! And this looks so savory and marvelous. 🙂

  21. Melissa says:

    Dear Joanne I love your recipes and this one looks fantastic. I wonder whether you would consider adding metric/Celcius conversions to your recipes. Your have readers from all over the world (Australia in my case). Unless they’re really good, I often don’t bother with US recipes if I have to do the conversion myself.

    • joanne says:

      Thanks so much for reaching out!! I didn’t realize it was so annoying to have to convert, so I will definitely try to include the Celsius conversions and, at least in baking recipes, weights in grams from now on! However, for past recipes, you can always reach out to me and I would be happy to do the conversion for you!

  22. Melissa says:

    Oops I meant Celsius.

  23. So delicious! This reminds me of the feature in Bon Appétit on heirlooms and this tart totally does them justice- pinning 🙂

  24. cheri says:

    Hi Joanne, summer tomatoes are the best and heirlooms, don’t get me started they are so beautiful and delicious, each variety has it’s own special flavor. I know I would love this.

  25. Kelly says:

    Love that you are stubborn and didn’t give up. Heirloom tomatoes totally have my heart and so does this galette! So darn beautiful!

  26. easypeasy says:

    Amen! Tomato week is very close to Christmas! And this recipe is just the best!!!! 🙂

  27. Hotly Spiced says:

    The heirloom tomatoes are just gorgeous; I love all the different shapes and colours. And I do love a dish with rustic beauty. This is a wonderful dish and I’ll look forward to making this – great flavours here! xx

  28. I think they are the most beautiful tomatoes I have ever seen, and what a perfect way to use them.
    You are making me even more sad that we didn’t grow tomatoes this year 🙁

  29. Heirlooms tomatoes are awesome, Joanne. Glad that you didn’t give up. And this rustic galette looks so gorgeous and delicious. I need this in my life! 🙂

  30. grace says:

    no pumpkin allowed! don’t even say the word! this is more my style right now, for sure. your tomatoes look lovely, both raw and galette-ized. 🙂

  31. This galette looks so yummy. I have heirloom tomatoes planted in my garden, but none of them have ripened at this time. This would be the perfect recipe to try them out in.

  32. Actually, I’d say ditch the cabbage and make another one of these!

  33. Johanna GGG says:

    that looks so yummy – I really want to make galettes and then I don’t – must remember how beautiful tomatoes look in galette to encourage me
