A GF Tomato Tart Inspired By Bon Appetit

I was reading Bon Appetit this summer when I came across this beautiful recipe for a tomato tart. Unfortunately, it wasn’t gluten free or cow’s milk free. I remade the recipe with foods that agree with my body. For the crust, I used Simple Mills almond flour crackers and for the cheese I used plain goat cheese and pecorino romano cheese instead of parmesan. I left out the garlic and the shallots as well.
