A question about a recipe: Caprese Tart (from Cherry Tomato contest)

Ba5bde91 130a 49b7 b918 ad0962bff9b3  img 2194

Love the "Caprese Tart" recipe from TheRunawaySpoon but need to find a way to save time on the step for coring & seeding the cherry tomatoes. Could you alternately use whole cherry tomatoes and just scatter small mozz cubes over them, then bake? Would you bake the tart a bit first without the mozz, to get the cherry tomatoes moving along, and then add the mozz cubes closer to the end of baking? Thanks!

Are you sure you can't ask someone to help you core the tomatoes? The beauty of this recipe is in the prep RunAwaySpoon puts into it.

You are going to have extra liquid from not coring and seeding the cherry tomatoes. One possibility is to bake the tomatoes alone at about 350F for an hour or two so they release liquid. And I wouldn't use cubes, which are too heavy, I would grate the mozzarella.

Good luck!
