If you love Tuna Melt sandwiches, I’ve got good news for you! You can now have Tuna Melt for dinner with this vegetarian tart. I used vegan tuna for this savory tart so this recipe is suitable for vegetarians as well.
Tuna Melt for Dinner
My boyfriend loves tuna, and he often orders the Tuna Melt sandwich when we’re going for lunch. Now he can have his lunch dish for dinner too! This veggie Tuna Melt for dinner is super easy to make. All you need is 4 ingredients and 15 minutes. So it’s a great recipe for when you don’t feel like cooking or when you’re short on time. I also love this recipe for when friends are coming over. Because besides for dinner, you can also serve this as finger food or a snack if you cut it in smaller pieces.
Pescatarian, vegetarian or vegan?
My Tuna Melt for dinner recipe is vegetarian, but you can adjust it if you’re a pescatarian (fish eater) or if you’re a vegan. If you like eating fish you can swap the vegan tuna for real tuna. And if you’re eating vegan, you can swap the cheddar cheese for a vegan variety.
The flammkuchen dough that I’ve used was already vegan, so the cheddar cheese is the only thing you’ll need to swap.
As you might know, it’s not sustainable to eat tuna. There are less and less tuna fish in the sea and they’re difficult to breed in captivity. So eating a plant-based tuna alternative is great for the planet!

Recipe Tuna Melt for Dinner
1 roll Flammkuchen dough (from the refrigerated section of your grocery store)
1 can of vegan tuna
100 grams cheddar cheese, grated
Preheat the oven to 220C.
Roll out the flammkuchen dough on a baking sheet. If there isn’t parchment paper underneath the flammkuchen dough yet, make sure to put that on the baking sheet first.
Divide half of the cheddar cheese on the flammkuchen dough, leave some room at the edges.
Divde the plant-based tuna over the savory tart. Sprinkle with the remaining cheddar cheese.
Cut the tomatoes in slices and divide over the tart.
Bake the tart in the oven for 12 minutes.
Serve with a green salad.
