I have wanted to make a tomato pie for a very long time, so I was thrilled when I had gathered all my ingredients and then invited friends over to dinner, so I was happy to be able to share this luscious dish.
There's nothing like fresh tomatoes! We've been given so many lately, but I think adding cheese to them makes them even better.
So when I recently saw that Stacey from Southern Bite shared his recipe, it gave me the motivation to finally getter done!
If you take a peek at Stacey's pie, his tomato layer looks thicker than mine...I wish I would have added another tomato...will do that next time. I think there should be at least 2 full layers inside your pie crust.
I used white whole wheat to make an oil pastry crust for our pie.
I also added a little Frank's hot sauce (my hubby loves the stuff!) to give it a little kick, and also added fresh chopped onions. So all those things are optional.

FRESH TOMATO PIE
4 medium tomatoes
1 prebaked pie crust, cooled
chopped onions to taste, optional
1 tsp. dried basil
(or 8 - 10 fresh leaves, chopped)
3/4 c. mayonnaise
2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 c. parmesan cheese
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 - 1 tsp. Frank's hot sauce, optional
fresh ground pepper
Thinly slice tomatoes then salt them. Place in a strainer or on a cooling rack (I put mine over my sink) to draw out moisture.
Preheat oven to 350.
In large bowl, combine mayo, mozzarella, parmesan, minced garlic & hot sauce. Stir until well combined.
