2.Line the tart tin with pastry. Spread over the mustard and sprinkle on the salt. Scatter the grated cheese in a sparse layer and top with tomatoes, slightly overlapping each slice. Place anchovies so that when sliced, there’s one per slice. Drizzle with olive oil.
3.Place on top of the heated tray and bake for 35-45 minutes or until the pastry is cooked and the tomatoes have darkened and cooked.
4.To serve, garnish with the thyme leaves and eat warm or at room temperature.
