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. Source: EatingWell Magazine, November/December 2007

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • 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.

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


Make Ahead Tip: Prepare up to 2 hours ahead; serve at room temperature.

Tip: Look for whole-wheat pizza-dough balls at your supermarket. Check the ingredient list to make sure the dough doesn't contain any hydrogenated oils.

Easy cleanup: Recipes that require cooking spray can leave behind a sticky residue that can be hard to clean. To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you apply the cooking spray.

Easy and Delicious! I made this to take to a party and everyone loved it. I did use whole wheat pizza dough and added toasted walnuts on top before baking. It made for a heartier serving. Read More

I made this for a get-together with about 7 guests. They all absolutely raved over it. The sweetness of the dried cranberries with the savory Swiss cheese was just perfect. I will be making this again! Read More
