To prepare tapenade, combine ingredients in blender and pulse until smooth paste is formed.
Black Olive and Goat Cheese Tart.
Preheat oven to 425. Lightly flour board and roll puff pastry to form a 8x12 inch rectangle. (Excess puff pastry can be frozen for future use.).
Transfer to parchment lined baking tray. Pierce puff in several places with fork.
Spread pesto thinly on top, leaving a 1/2 inch border around edges. Spread dollops of tapenade on top. Arrange oven dried tomatoes on top and crumble spoonfuls of goat cheese evenly across tart.
Brush egg yolk lightly on border and sprinkle grated parmesan on top. Bake at 425 until edges become light golden and puffy, about 8-10 minutes.
Top with torn basil leaves. Let cool slightly before serving.
