Galette is the French term for a savory or sweet pie in a flat, round crust. This tomato-and-cheese version takes just minutes of prep time and is perfect as a light dinner or an hors d’oeuvre for last-minute guests. You can also substitute fresh summer squash for the tomatoes.
Preheat oven to 400F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray, or line with parchment paper. Roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness on floured surface. Trim to make 12-inch circle using a paring knife. Place on prepared baking sheet, and chill 30 minutes.
Combine ricotta, 1 Tbs. Pecorino Romano and chopped basil in bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread ricotta mixture over crust, leaving 2-inch border. Place tomato slices on ricotta mixture, overlapping to create circular pattern. Gently fold 2-inch border of pastry over edge of tomato slices. Season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with remaining Pecorino Romano. Bake 35 minutes, or until crust is browned and crisp. Remove from pan, and cool on rack 5 minutes. Sprinkle with torn basil, and cut into wedges.
