  • Helpful Tips: Balsamic glaze is found with the balsamic vinegar in the supermarket, but if not available, simmer 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar until reduced to 2 tablespoons, 6 to 7 minutes. Cool completely.

I've made this twice now. It's very good as written, but I've also tried it with the addition of a few sprinkles of EVOO. Both times a hit with the crowd. Be sure to use fresh basil.

It was good but I would add less balsamic. I also added ricotta which I recommend.

My wife makes this often and I don't think I could ever get sick of it. It's delicious and simple to make. Great snack for when you have guest over.

We really like this recipie and it's pretty simple. I couldn't find Balsamic glaze in the store and my attempts at making it failed miserably. However, I just use regular Balsamic vinegerette and it works great.

This is a wonderful recipe! I have served it so many times the last two years for friends and family, and it always gets rave reviews and a request for the recipe ! And it looks pretty also.

Love, love, love it! I made it just as is and it was perfect. I switched out the pie crust with a sheet of phyllo dough and thought that was great too. If you use phyllo, take a sharp knife and cut a border around it and puncture inside the border with a fork. This will make the edges rise and the center with the "stuff" on it stay flat. CLC

Great recipe! But I did tweak it. After reading other reviews, I decided to leave out the balsamic and use a Blackberry drizzle (recipe I found on food network). It was left over from a ham we ate on Easter.I thought it would be similar because it has balsamic vinegar in it. It added a sweet heat to the savory tart. I also added three slices of chopped Canadian bacon for protein, this added smokiness that went nicely with the other toppings. This tart is an interesting option for using up fresh basil and tomatoes when one's tired of caprese salad. I can only give it four stars because I haven't tried the recipe as is. I will def make it again.
