On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to 16- x 12-inch rectangle. Fit into 13- x 9-inch metal cake pan, draping overhang over sides. Brush mustard over bottom; set aside.

In bowl, whisk together ricotta, eggs, Parmesan cheese, all but 2 tbsp of the basil, and half each of the salt and pepper. Scrape into pastry shell.

Thinly slice tomatoes; arrange over filling, overlapping slightly. Fold overhang over filling. Whisk egg yolk with 1 tbsp water; brush over pastry.
