Place all-purpose flour, powdered sugar, and cold salted butter in a food processor. Pulse until mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. Add cold water and pulse again until a sticky dough forms.
Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead lightly or pat to form a disk. Wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
Remove dough from refrigerator. Unwrap onto a non-stick pastry mat (or a large piece of wax paper). Roll into a 12-inch circle.
Invert onto a 9-inch removable bottom tart pan. Press the dough evenly onto the bottom and sides of the tart pan. Trim dough to the edges of the pan, patching where necessary.
Prick sides and bottom of crust with a fork. Line crust with double layer of foil and bake for 15 minutes.
While crust is in the oven, melt butter in a medium fry pan. Add onions and cook until light golden, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Sprinkle dried thyme, ground pepper, and kosher salt over the tomatoes. Bake for another 30 minutes.
