TWD/BWJ: Tomato and Cheese Galette

Galette, where have you been all my life? Delicious quickie meal! Especially if the dough is already prepped in the fridge. The crust has a nice crunchy texture thanks to the addition of cornmeal. And the filling could be anything. Last year it was fruit, and this week's recipe called for tomatoes, cheese, and basil. Which will be fabulous when our garden tomatoes are ready. Unfortunately, the garden got a bit of a late start this year (heck, it was COLD until mid-May!) so I was forced to use grape tomatoes from the grocery. A variety of cheeses got tossed in - jack, fresh mozzarella, goat cheese, parmesan, and something wonderful that I found at Whole Foods called "seaside cheddar". For those family members who insist on meat, I added some pastrami to one. 
There's one problem. They're small. So, future self, make two no matter what. Unless you're home alone. 

Now, by way of explanation as to why this post is over a week late... ROAD TRIP! Here's a taste:
