Rustic tomato ricotta galette for a quick after-work dinner

It's the end of August, we have summer and Cologne has also shown its best side today. That's why there's a quick, simple, vegetarian and summer break-time kitchen.
Recently, I've found the perfect recipe for the most wonderful, crispy tartar for savory tartes and baked it in a grandiose zucchini tart with goat cream cheese and parmesan crispbread .

Last year there was already a rustic zucchini galette with ricotta and walnuts. But this time it should be the combination of the ingenious Tarte floor with the rustic character of a free-form galette. And of course it should be quick and easy, so that you can conjure up something just as fast after work.

Here you are, I present you an instant tomato ricotta galette. It takes only a few ingredients and little time and has found the perfect companion for a crisp salad. The tart tastes both warm and cold, and it looks especially pretty if you use colorful tomatoes.
